RENEGADES TRIVIA

--
Donald Dizney was able to place his team in Orlando thanks to the USFL's Constitution, which established that no team could move within 75 miles of another league team.
--
The Tampa Bay Bandits, the closest USFL team to Dizney's Renegades, were 97 miles away, just barely outside the Bandits territory.
--
The move would be today's equivalent of baseball's Colorado Rockies pulling up stakes and moving to Tucson, Arizona - a little too close for comfort as far as the Arizona Diamondbacks would be concerned.

care industry giant and former Tampa Bay Bandits
limited partner who decided he wanted a team
of his own, buying the Washington Federals
and moving them to Orlando for 1985.
