Last year around this time the NFL lost a founding father in Wellington Mara of the Giants. Today the NFL lost another founding father in Lamar Hunt the owner of the KC Chiefs. Here is why we should be thanking him he was one of the most influential owners in the NFL for the past 40 plus years and if not for him there would be no name such as the Superbowl it still would be called the championship game. He was instrumental in the AFL-NFL merger. He lobbied for years for a third thanksgiving game and they finally got one just this year but he couldn't watch because the hospital room he was in didn't have the NFL network.
RIP Mr. Hunt
