1922 – Packers Expelled from APFA

On this date the Green Bay Packers were expelled from the American Professional Football Association (APFA) for using three Notre Dame players, under assumed names, in a non-league game against Racine the previous December. Despite the use of the illegal players, the Packers tied Racine 3-3 in this state championship. The Packers were allowed to returned to the league before the next season. [Source: ]
