Game 297 | May 28, 1982 | Ed Garvey, Joe Kapp
A Wisconsin native and an employee of the Minneapolis law firm of Lindquist and Vennum, Garvey became the Executive Director of the National Football League Players Association (NLPA) in 1971 and held that job until giving way to Gene Upshaw in 1983. Kapp, the former Vikings quarter-back, became the coach of the California Golden Bears football team in late 1981. As a player, Kapp used the Players Association in a salary dispute that led the Vikings to trade him to the Boston Patriots.
