FEDERALS TRIVIA

--
After the 1983 season, the Federals changed their color scheme, incorporating silver along with the black and green.
--
The helmets were the most notable aspect of the change, as white helmets were replaced with silver ones.
--
Unfortunately the effect of the change (see the '84 Media Guide at right) was to dull the look of the team on the field, making them even less marketable than they were thanks to their record.
--
The Feds original color scheme was inspired by team owner Berl Bernhard's racing yacht Invictus.
--
Limited partnerships in the Feds were available for the sum of $100,000, provided you were willing to contribute an additional $200,000 to help operate the team if it were needed (which it was). 
--
Tickets for Federals games were priced at $10, 12, 14 and $18, respectively. 
--
Assuming everyone paid for $18 tickets, the Feds game against the Memphis Showboats on Sunday, May 6 grossed the team a whopping $79,776... about what it cost to rent RFK Stadium for the day.
--
Federals owner Berl Bernard once referred to his team as "Muppets."  It was not a term of endearment.
