________________________________

The Muncie Flyers scratched the surface, just enough to become an NFL original.

Like the Rochester Jeffersons, the Flyers played but a solitary league game the inaugural season; one of two games opening day 3 October 1920.

Before disappearing from the annals of the NFL after 1921, Muncie registered only two more league contests. Such was the loose structure and limited resources of the sport at the outset.

The brevity of the Flyers is to be admired, checking out before the plague of foam fingers, terrible towels and the "fan experience" special sauce, orange goo masquerading as cheese. 

More history to be found in team ballcaps and dropkick shirts. However, there will be no more references to cheese or cheese-like products.
