The Hawaiians Football

Often misidentified as the Honolulu Hawaiians, this charter member of the World Football League (WFL) was known simply as The Hawaiians. Though crowds were small, the team avoided many of the financial problems that plagued most of the league's other teams. In 1975, the WFL's second season, The Hawaiians welcomed former Dallas running back Calvin Hill and moved into brand new Aloha Stadium. Attendance didn't improve, though, and the team was out of business, along with the rest of the league, after the 11th week of the season.
