One of the leaders of the upstart league was Lamar Hunt. Wealthy from his father’s oil inheritance, Hunt applied for a NFL franchise in Dallas but was turned down. He also attempted to purchase and move the Chicago Cardinals to Dallas with no luck. He was successful founding the Dallas Texans who immediately fielded a competitive team, going 8-6 in their inaugural season.
