The Pottsville Maroons and the NFL's Stolen Championship of 1925
by Vincent Genovese
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/1606721410/

Paperback: 215 pages
Publisher: PublishAmerica (December 8, 2008)
ISBN-10: 1606721410
ISBN-13: 978-1606721414

Description: There hasnít been a pro football team in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, since Calvin Coolidge was president, but donít tell the football fans there that. They have been feuding with the NFL for over eight decades; ever since their Pottsville Maroons team won the 1925 Championship in Chicago, only to lose it six days later when they broke league rules by playing and beating the famed Four Horsemen All-Stars of Notre Dame in the city of Philadelphia. Finally, after eighty-three years, the readers of the rest of the country get to decide if the NFL has made a mistake.
