Tim Capper - AFL Rewind Host
An Arena Football League podcast veteran since 2000, he hosted and produced the weekly “AFL Tonight” podcast for ArenaFan.com, the independent media and historical site that covered the league from 1998 to present day.
Being the proud and passionate ambassador of the league, and knowing how important the history of the league is, he transitioned the podcast into a historical format once the league folded in 2019. Tim also co-hosts and produces the weekly “Alouettes Flightdeck” podcast for his hometown Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
THE FOOTBALL HISTORY DUDE BACKGROUND
The Football History Dude is a show dedicated to teaching NFL fans about the rich history of the game we all know and love. I’m your host, Arnie Chapman, and I’m just a regular dude that loves football and is a nerd when it comes to learning about history. I created this show to share the gridiron knowledge nuggets I gain from researching various topics about the history of the National Football League. Each episode I welcome you to climb aboard my DeLorean to travel back in time to explore the yesteryear of the gridiron, and yes, that’s a reference to the Back to the Future Movies.
