A Little History of the NFL

by Rod D. Martin September 20, 2018 A little (very recent) history of the NFL: * In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray. They also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take...
