The APFA, by 1922 known as the National Football League , has remained the predominant professional football league in the United States, and, effectively, the entire world. The evolution from a haphazard collection of teams in big and small cities to the much more rigid structure it is in the present was gradual; the smaller markets were squeezed out in the late 1920s and early 1930s, a championship game was established in 1933, a draft was established in 1936, and schedules were standardized in the 1930s. A competing league has historically arisen to attempt to challenge the NFL's dominance every 10 to 15 years, but none managed to maintain long-term operations independent of the NFL and only two—the All-America Football Conference of the late 1940s and the American Football League of the 1960s—were strong enough to successfully compete against the league before the NFL subsumed their operations. Minor league football, although their leagues' memberships were unstable, began to arise in the late 1930s and remained viable as a business model up into the 1970s.
“Kinesiology tape is safe, effective and poses absolutely no risk for a positive drug test,” Dr. Forcum says. “Additionally, KT Tape allows for very specific targeting and fine-tuning with nearly immediate results. This can’t be achieved through oral medication. The tape application can help athletes move through a full and complete range of motion and aid their ability to balance and target. At the Olympic level there is such a fine margin in performance between an athlete watching a medal ceremony or standing on top of the podium. Kinesiology tape could provide this difference in performance in many circumstances.”
