In the 1980s, former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker helped establish a professional league of top college players who were older and more experienced than their competition. Teams in any given city would have teams they controlled and teams they didn’t, allowing them to build their own team from the best players available.
However, each team also owned a franchise in Atlanta where national television games were traditionally determined by which two teams’ owners could agree on terms for broadcasting rights. The USFL in its first season persuaded NBC to televise games with no up-front payments and committed to attend training camp before the NFL was ready with contracts for the 1986 season.
