Tonight I was watching the first episode of a five-part documentary on Showtime, Full Color Football: The History of the American Football League, and I was pleasantly surprised to see our very own Bill Belichick talking about his memories of the league. They even showed a couple pictures of him as a boy, as he talked about how he would watch AFL games on Sunday afternoons (partly because he loved football, and partly because it was an excuse not to do his homework .) I wasn't expecting them to feature anyone who wasn't involved with the AFL. By the time Bill started coaching the leagues had merged and the AFL was no more. But he wasn't the only one, there were other writers, historians, etc. who didn't play or coach in the league either. Heck, they even talked to Larry King. On a side note, there was a fair amount of footage of the Boston Patriots in their first year, which I could tell because they had the helmets with the tri-corner hats.
