  United States Football League - Biocrawler
The United States Football League was a professional American football league that played three seasons between 1983 and 1985, in the process presenting the rival National Football League with its greatest competitor since the 1960s version of the American Football League.
The USFL was the brainchild of David Dixon, a New Orleans entrepreneur who in the 1960s envisioned football as a possible spring and summer sport.
Initially the league was viewed as innovative and a serious challenger to the establishment NFL thanks to its willingness to sign marquee talent such as Brian Sipe, Herschel Walker, Doug Flutie, Mike Rozier, Reggie White, Jim Kelly, Steve Young and other young stars of the day.

 United States Flag Football Association - History, Evolution and Direction
Although founded primarily by 9-man states, at least one of the founding states and several of the newer Members had leagues that were 7-man, both eligible and ineligible, with and without downfield blocking.
With this in mind, the 7-man states who had been playing 9-man in the national tournaments, lobbied that their own division be created on a trial basis.
The leagues in those states, were arguing that since most teams only played once a week — going from 7 to 8 would allow two more players (12.5%) more on every play and that with 8 team members it facilitated a bit more creativity in play calling.
