The WLAF in 1992

Here are some clips of old WLAF games dating back from 1991 and 1992, when the league was trying out before an international audience. These games date from when North American teams figured prominently in the equation, predating what would become NFL Europe years later.

As I mentioned in the last post about the WLAF in their inaugural season, one of the big draws for the league was that it had an international feel, with teams from five different nations altogether. Here to prove it is a short clip of a game between the expansion Ohio Glory and the Montreal Machine, with commentating in French.

Being from New Jersey, I had plenty of opportunity to watch the New York/New Jersey Knights in action. Probably went to four or five games, if memory serves me correctly.

The Orlando Thunder became kind of that popular team that people seemed to like, mostly because of their unique, very bright and colorful uniforms.
