He became the president of the league after he was done playing on a team. He named the league the NFL, which stands for National Football League.

They have some of the best receiving core in the league now. Their defense is strong and also very good. They just have to put two and two together and make the gears turn and the bells and whistles ring like a fine tuned clock. I believe that either this year, or in the next few years to come that it will be the Detroit Lions’ year to win a Super Bowl! So, if you love football as much as I do, and know a lot about the sport like I do, whether you’re a Lions fan or not it’s not hard to see what I’m talking about when I say that the Lions have the best receiving core in the league.
The friendship between Johnson and Ellis has caused Frank Havens, the Assistant Athletic Director, to hesitate in approaching Ellis with the complaints he has received about Johnson from both members and staff. This hesitation to take action has caused his staff to start questioning his abilities as a manager. When Havens finally approaches Ellis with the complaints, Ellis becomes extremely defensive. Bob Watts also diminished the allegations and tried to convince Havens that it was just a silly rumor. The unwillingness by Bob Watts, the Director, and Ted Ellis, the Athletic
Although payments to players were considered unsporting and dishonourable and even though PAC had suspicions it was kept a secret for years. After almost 80 years the Pro Football Hall of Fame received and displayed a document of an expense accounting sheet of the Allegheny Athletic Association, also known as “the birth certificate of pro football.” Therefore pro football made its way after more than 100 years of being invented, as an official professional sport. The game of American football caught on quickly, having intercollegiate teams in over 43 universities in 1900.

The League of Nations is deemed as a “Victor’s Club”, because it was ruled by the winners of the War. The United States did not join the League of Nations because their senate refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles. The League of Nations was presented as a fourteen point speech to a joint session of congress on January 8th 1918. When President Wilson suffered a crippling stroke in 1919, Republican, Warren Harding replaced him as president in 1920, pledging the opposition to the League and forecasting its failure in the United States.

The Weeks case pertained to an appeal by a defendant who was convicted of transporting lottery tickets through the mail. The conviction was based on evidence gathered after law enforcement officers searched the defendant’s home without a warrant and seized the evidence illegally. The defendant’s conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court and this created what we now know as the exclusionary rule. It was in the case of Mapp v. Ohio, 367 U.S. 643 (1961), that the Supreme Court made the rule germane to the states. Justice Day said, "The tendency of those who execute the criminal laws of the country to obtain convictions by means of unlawful searches and enforced confessions .
President Polk, a believer in the Manifest Destiny, provoked a war with Mexico in order to obtain more territory. At the conclusion of the war with Mexico, in 1848, the United States had obtained New Mexico, California, and Texas north of the Rio Grande from the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo. A conflict arose between the Northerners and Southerners to decide whether the states should be free states of slave states. “The Treaty did nothing to settle the question of slavery in the new territory, however. Mexico had abolished the institution two decades earlier; would the United States reintroduce it?
Rogerson took possession of the motor car but then wrongfully sold it to an innocent third party who took good title under the provisions of the Hire Purchase Act 1964 (as re-enacted by the Consumer Credit Act 1974). Rogerson subsequently stopped his hire-purchase payments and Royscot brought an action against him (for, inter alia, conversion of the car) and Maidenhead Honda (for misrepresentation under s.2(1) of the Misrepresentation Act 1967) entering judgment in default against both of them for damages to be assessed. As against Maidenhead Honda a county court judge awarded the difference between the sum advanced by Royscot for purchase of the car *L.Q.R. 548 (£6,400) and the sum Royscot would have advanced if Rogerson's deposit of £1,200 had in truth represented 20 per cent. of the purchase price of the car (£4,800).
Assignment 2 McDonald v. Chicago In the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, the individual citizen does have a substantive right to bear arms. The case overturned a handgun ban in the Washington D.C. The case was unique as the District of Columbia is under federal jurisdiction, so the handgun ban was effectively considered a federal measure. Following Heller, a number of residents in the city of Chicago sued arguing that they too also wanted the right to have a handgun for self defense purposes, but were kept from doing so because of Chicago’s law. They asked the court to declare Chicago law banning handguns unconstitutional.
