  • The 1920 APFA season was the inaugural season of the American Professional Football Association—renamed the National Football League in 1922. The league was formed on August 20, 1920 by independent professional American football teams from Ohio, all of whom had previously played in the Ohio League or New York Pro Football League (NYPFL). At the meeting, they first called their new league the American Professional Football Conference. A second organizational meeting was held in Canton on September 17, adding more teams to the league. At the meeting, the name of the league became the American Professional Football Association. Four other teams also joined the Association during the year. Meanwhile, Jim Thorpe of the Canton Bulldogs was named the APFA's first president but continued to play for the team. Scheduling was left up to each team. There were wide variations, both in the overall number of games played and in the number played against other Association members. Thus, no official standings were maintained. In addition, football teams in the APFA also faced independent football teams not associated with the league. For instance, the Rochester Jeffersons played a schedule consisting mostly of local teams from their local sandlot circuit and the NYPFL, not the APFA. The Akron Pros ended the season as the only undefeated team in the Association. Despite this, two one-loss teams—the Decatur Staleys and Buffalo All-Americans—who both tied Akron that year made cases for a co-championship. At the league meetings in Akron on April 30, 1921, the Pros were awarded the Brunswick-Balke Collender Cup for the 1920 season, the only year the trophy was used. According to modern NFL tie-breaking rules, the 1920 Buffalo All-Americans would be co-champions. They would be tied with the Akron Pros in win percentage, 9.5 wins to 1.5 losses (.864), both teams beating out the Staleys, who would have a season that counted 11 wins to 2 losses (.846). Of the 14 teams that played in the APFA/NFL's inaugural season, the Chicago Cardinals, now named the Arizona Cardinals, and the Decatur Staleys, now named the Chicago Bears, are the only teams that remain in the league.

  • La stagione NFL 1920 fu la prima stagione sportiva della National Football League, la massima lega professionistica statunitense di football americano. La stagione iniziò il 26 settembre e si concluse il 19 dicembre 1920. La lega venne fondata in un concessionario di automobili di Canton il 20 agosto 1920 da quattro squadre professionistiche dell'Ohio: gli Akron Pros, i Canton Bulldogs, i Cleveland Tigers e i Dayton Triangles. Queste quattro squadre si scontravano già dal 1903 nella Ohio League, una lega semi-ufficiale, ma fu solo nel 1920 che il campionato venne formalizzato. Durante l'incontro la lega venne inizialmente denominata American Professional Football Conference Il 17 settembre si tenne una seconda riunione a Canton in cui si aggiunsero altre squadre: gli Hammond Pros e i Muncie Flyers dall'Indiana, i Rochester Jeffersons provenienti dalla New York Pro Football League e i Rock Island Independents, i Decatur Staleys e i Racine Cardinals dall'Illinois. In questo secondo incontro la lega si diede il nuovo nome di American Professional Football Association, nome che nel 1922 verrà modificato nel definitivo National Football League. Durante l'anno si unirono alla lega altre quattro squadre: i Buffalo All-Americans (provenienti anch'essi dalla New York Pro Football League), i Chicago Tigers, i Columbus Panhandles e i Detroit Heralds. Nel frattempo, Jim Thorpe dei Canton Bulldogs venne nominato primo presidente della APFA pur continuando a svolgere anche il ruolo di giocatore. (it)
