RE: the Maroons, you do know that the real villains here were not the Cardinals (then the Chicago Cardinals), but rather the Frankfort Yellow Jackets. They scheduled the ill-fated exhibition game against Notre Dame to be played against the winner of the upcoming Maroons-Yellow Jackets rivalry game (at the time, a rather heated affair). When the Maroons clobbered the Yellow Jackets 49-0, the vindictive owner of the Yellow Jackets hastily scheduled ANOTHER game, this time against the Cleveland Browns. He then brazenly protested to the league that the Notre Dame-Maroons game (to be played in Philadelphia, Sharks...I mean Yellow Jacekts turf) violated his exclusive franchise rights. Remember, this is the same Notre Dame-Maroons game that HE HIMSELF ARRANGED. The league agreed, for some reason, and warned the Maroons, in writing, not to play the game or risk suspension. The Maroons thumbed their noses at the league and played anyway. The league called their bluff, and the Maroons lost the championship. The Cardinals, as the second place team in the league, were the beneficiaries, though through no machinations on their part.

So George, the next time you blame the Cardinals for all this, think about the real culprits: the Frankfort Yellow Jackets, and the arrogance of the Maroons.
