In this episode of the Inside Football Podcast with Bill Polian, the guys begin their two-part look at NFL Expansion in 1993 and the birth of the Carolina Panthers. In this episode we dive deep into all the permutations of NFL Expansion and the factors that went into the decision, who the key players were, and why the NFL ultimately landed on Carolina and Jacksonville. We get Bill's insights into his multiple roles with the Panthers from building out the football side of the organization, to selecting a coach and a few very interesting non-football things that came up along the way from the uniforms, to hospital selection and even a few never before heard grass issues, and we might even have a discussion in the audible about will the league ever expand again.
