  Ten-year AFL patch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ten-Year AFL Patch is a shoulder patch adapted for use on AFL team uniforms.
American Football League fans petitioned the AFL owners to have their players wear a patch commemorating the league's 10 years, especially since it was the AFL's final year.
AFL Hall of Fame coach Hank Stram supported the idea and used the patch as a motivating factor for his team.

Two years after his retirement as a player he shared the South Adelaide coaching with Bill Sutherland, laying the foundations for the team that was to secure a premiership under Neil Kerley in 1964.
Two years later he was in his more accustomed position on a wing as the red and whites secured their second flag with another grand final victory over South, this time somewhat more comfortably, 9.14 (68) to 4.7 (31).
In 1983 he crossed to Sturt and was a key member of the team for the next ten years, playing 246 games and kicking 249 goals, winning three club best and fairest awards, and serving as captain in his last two seasons.

 Remember the AFL
The AFL also adopted the first-ever cooperative television plan for professional football, in which the league office negotiated an ABC-TV contract, the proceeds of which were divided equally among member clubs.
AFL scouts, including fls like Tom Williams and the first full-time fl scout, Lloyd Wells, recruited and opened the gates for the hundreds of talented fls who subsequently contributed immeasurably to the sport, following in the footsteps of Abner Haynes, Buck Buchanan, Lionel Taylor and the like.
Long passes ("bombs") were commonplace in AFL offenses, led by such talented quarterbacks as John Hadl, Daryle Lamonica and Len Dawson.

 Texans and Chiefs
Originated as the Dallas Texans by AFL founder Lamar Hunt, the franchise had the most playoff appearances as an AFL team, six (tied with Oakland), the most American Football League Championships (3), and the most Super Bowl appearances, playing in the first Super Bowl, and in the last to be played between LEAGUE champions.
He is the all-time AFL leader in interceptions with 47, for a 20-yard return average and 5 tds, and he averaged 25.4 yards on 110 kickoff returns.
Haynes helped launch the AFL in 1960, when he was the fledgling league's first Most Valuable Player, and its first Rookie of the Year.

Ten minutes later, he only had eight men, including a tourist from San Diego named Al Krinick who had shown up because he had heard "they were still davening" in the synagogue where his grandfather had prayed more than half a century before.
The first several years of the 20th century were hard hit by recession, making it difficult for unions to make demands that could be met by the employers.
This strike was resolved with the industry-wide “Protocol of Peace”, which outlined a system of union-employer relations that greatly increased the accountability of the bosses to their employees (though, as is always the case in American labor history, it was never enough...).

I petitioned the American Football League owners to have their players wear a patch commemorating the league's ten years, especially since it was the AFL's final year.
The AFL owners generally either ignored or declined this suggestion.

The fact is, the AFL unions will continue to pour their members' money down the rat hole on candidates and causes in which their members don't believe.
This was the guy who has promised every two years since 1994 "to win back the House [of Representatives] for the Democrats", to spend whatever it takes, to flush more of his members' hard-earned money down the rathole supporting candidates at odds with their views.
Of late, the AFL folks in Washington are fond of rallying around a giant inflatable rat and contracting out the dirty work by hiring homeless people for substandard wages -- and no benefits -- to picket for them while the chiefs stay warm inside on these cold winter days.

Barassi's defection, as it was popularly seen, was announced on December 23, 1964, just three months after he had led Melbourne to its 12th premiership, and just two weeks after a new committee led by George Harris had taken control of the Blues.
It would be 23 years before it made another finals appearance, and its last premiership captain was you know who.
Whatever everybody thought of him over the years, whether they loved him or hated him, I think they appreciated the fact that he wasn't well and it was their opportunity to say goodbye.

Immigration during the 1990's was some 900,000 legal immigrants a year and, according to the most recent INS estimate, about 350,000 undocumented immigrants.
Think about it: For years the company has been urging us to eat their breakfast cereals because they promote heart health, while at the same it is helping to the destroy the principles on which this country rests, a country that has made it possible for them to prosper as they have.
My understanding of the Rhubarb Patch is that it's a forum for spokespersons representing different perspectives on controversial issues to state their positions, and possibly point to directions of "common ground".

 Heavy medal - AFL - www.smh.com.au
When the little blue-and-gold medal was placed around his neck on a September night last year, the champagne corks popped and Adam Goodes became a member of an exclusive club.
Goodes says he came into this year with little personal expectation and managed to avoid the scrutiny that is often placed on Brownlow medallists because Sydney is less AFL-centric than Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth.
Hawthorn's Shane Crawford said part of the reason for his form slump in 2000, his post-Brownlow year, was the pressure of constant off-field commitments, the photo shoots, the interviews, everyone wanting a piece of him, demanding his time.

Thompson acknowledged the Big Ten's broader demographics in terms of alumni spread throughout the country.
While Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany mentioned the MWC in passing during a 90-minute national conference call, the Big Ten website states only that the Big Ten is the second conference to plan its own TV network.
