1994 The year the CFL put a Pro football team in Las Vegas!

There has been a lot of talk about how the NHL putting a team in Las Vegas will be the first time the city has had a professional team. The first pro team from a legitimate league was the Canadian Football League’s attempt in 1994 to put a team in Las Vegas called the Posse, what followed can only be termed a comedy of errors. It was so bad that it’s hard to know where to begin.

"What's the appeal of the posse?"
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.

Since most of this info comes or is partly copied from wikipedia :

As per wikipedia: "A group of vigilantes"

As per wikipedia: "A vigilante (/ˌvɪdʒɪˈlænti/, /ˌvɪdʒɪˈlænteɪ/; Spanish: [bixiˈlante]; Portuguese: [viʒiˈlɐ̃t(&#616 ;) ], [viʒiˈlɐ̃tʃi]) is a civilian or organization acting in a law enforcement capacity (or in the pursuit of self-perceived justice) without legal authority."

Look up.

That vapor trail is what was left behind by the joke zooming over your head.

The posse choose a great passer, although they didn't know at the time. ;)
