Classic Team Logo of The Day

07 Dec

Logo of a pro football team that lasted less than a full season in the old defunct World Football League back in 1974, the New York Stars. The WFL wanted a team in the Big Apple, but this franchise was woefully underfunded. They used the New York market to bring in a pair of former New York Jets players, George Sauer, who was lured out of retirement, and Gerry Philbin. Their first head coach was Joe Namath’s former backup quarterback Babe Parilli. Despite compiling a winning record of 8-5, the team failed at the box office and was moved to Charlotte for the rest of the season, eventually morphing into the Charlotte Hornets.
