    Someone on Facebook pointed this out. They removed his pics and have been editing out important info pertaining to his time with Green Bay

    Vince Lombardi's Wikipedia Page

    "Vincent Thomas "Vince" Lombardi (June 11, 1913 – September 3, 1970) was an American football coach. He is best known as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960s. The National Football League's Super Bowl trophy is named in his honor. Lombardi played American football at St. Francis Preparatory School[1], and later Fordham University.[2] He began coaching as an assistant and later as a head coach at St. Cecilia, a Catholic high school in Englewood, New Jersey. He would later coach at Fordham and the U.S. Military Academy. His NFL coaching debut was in 1954 as an offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, helping them win the 1956 NFL Championship Game. Lombardi was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers from 1959–67, winning five league championships during his nine years. Following a one-year retirement from coaching in 1968, he returned as head coach of the Washington Redskins for the 1969 season.
    Lombardi's record in the post-season was 9–1, with his only loss coming in the first of those games against the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1960 NFL Championship Game."


    Hmm... Looks fine to me.

    it's Wikipedia

    A site ANYBODY can edit. I hate when people link there, especially on classic movie forums where these experts that edit pages of legends show them no respect.

    If anyone needs Football information, such as stats on coaching and playoff records, this is your site, where dumbasses don't have permission to edit

    Probably Steelers fans who fail to recognize that there was any NFL or championships until 1970.

    I don't take much I read on Wikipedia with much seriousness. I am sure it is already fixed, no big deal.

    Are some people really just so bored, that they would waste their time on doing it, or are they just so dumb for not knowing, that they can just reset it again?

    Hey did you guys also know that the NFL really started in 1970? You didn't? It's true, just ask a Steelers fan.

    The history lover in me wants to debate that Paul Brown was a better coach. The Packer fan in me is tellin me to shut up, its frickin Lombardi.
