I wanted to use today’s post to inform readers of some great new additions to Tales from the American Football League.  This blog is ever-expanding, and I am continuing to add quality AFL material as quickly as I can find it.

As you have likely seen, we have recently posted articles written by guest bloggers.  There are many AFL historians, collectors and enthusiasts out there that have interesting insights into various AFL-related subjects, and I would like to give them a voice on the blog.  First we heard from Dave Steidel, author of the outstanding book, Remember the AFL.  Dave has supplied two articles thus far, Rookie of Renown, and NFL vs. AFL; or How I Learned to Recognize Fact from Fiction.  Former AFL Chargers ball boy, John Freeman, discussed his memories surrounding his inclusion on a famous Lance Alworth image, with Me & Bambi.  Lastly, we did an informative email interview with Denver Broncos game used equipment collector, Tom Jacobsen.  I will continue to search out individuals to provide varied and interesting AFL content to the daily articles.

I have also been adding new features to the “More Great AFL Content” section on the home page.  After beginning with Coaches Records and Weekly Standings, I recently posted Numerical AFL All-Star Rosters (I’m still searching for 1966 & 1970 rosters).  A significant portion of the AFL Record Book has been uploaded, with more to come.  Still to come are an All-Time League Roster and other features as well.

Just this week, I uploaded the AFL Photo Galleries.  The first galleries to go up consist of nearly 200 images from the 1962, 1963 & 1964 AFL All-Star Games that were held in San Diego.  This section will get new additions as quickly as I can scan them, and will include trading cards, individual games, and many more AFL-related themes.

I would be remiss if I did not thank not only the guest bloggers, but also all readers of Tales from the American Football League.  I appreciate your readership, and hope that you do not mind the occasional technological glitch, as I continue working to make this the among the best AFL sites on the internet.  Thank you for your time and interest!
