EXPRESS TRIVIA

--
Among the more colorful nicknames of USFL players was that of Express nose guard Eddie "Meat Cleaver" Weaver.
--
For 1983 and 1984, the Express were aligned in the USFL's Pacific Division, along with the Arizona Wranglers, Denver Gold and Oakland Invaders.
--
When the number of teams in the league fell to 14 for 1985, the Express were aligned with the other six teams west of the Mississippi River into the league's Western Conference.
--
Construction on the Los Angeles Coliseum was completed on May 1, 1923.  The stadium had a capacity of 92,516 seats during the Express' stay.
--
Only approximately 25,000 of those seats were between the goal lines, however, making the stadium ill-suited for pro football.
--
Nevertheless, the Coliseum would host three pro football tenants other than the Express.
--
The Los Angeles Rams called the Coliseum home until 1980, when the team relocated to Anaheim Stadium. 
--
The Oakland Raiders moved to Los Angeles in 1982, calling the Coliseum home until the team moved back for the 1995 NFL season.
--
The Los Angeles Xtreme of the XFL would also call the Coliseum home in its only season, in 2001.
