Lamar Hunt

1932-2006
Southern Methodist
Owner, Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs, 1960-2006

Born into Texas oil money, he got together with another Texas oil scion, Bud Adams and started the American Football League. His team, the Dallas Texans, competed with the NFL’s Cowboys for three years, but the town wasn’t big enough for the the both of them, so he moved his bunch north to Kansas City where they’ve been ever since. The Raiders/Chiefs rivalry got good and hot in the late 1960s when the two teams were the class of the league and it has stayed hot ever since, even through the times when one or both teams were down on their luck. Consequently, Hunt is not amongst the most beloved figures in Raider lore, but there’s no denying the Raiders wouldn’t be a thing if it weren’t for Hunt’s boredom and excess of money back in 1959.
