However, another group reported that they had deposited money.

However, NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, who had been in touch with Atlanta businessmen, was driven by the Interest of the AFL and went to Atlanta to block the claim of the rival league of the city of Atlanta.2 Because both the NFL and the AFL wanted to own the Atlanta team in their league, the city was forced to do A choice between the two leagues. On June 30, the city chose Rankin Smith and the NFL.

The Atlanta Falcons Football Club received its nickname on August 29, 1965. Julia Elliott, a Griffin schoolteacher, as well as many others suggested "hawks" as the nickname for the new Georgia franchise in the NFL.
