Years later as President Richard Nixon, he declared himself for pro football "all the way", and told his attorney general to offer the NFL league a quid pro quo: Televise home playoff games, and the president will prevent legislation requiring regular-season home games to be aired as well. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle turned him down. (AP Photo/File)
