PFRA-ternizing. An update on membership count for the PFRA, numbers on the official PFRA Twitter feed and a recap of a local chapter meeting in Southern California from PFRA Secretary Lee Elder.

The Oswego Shakespeares and the Disputed 1915 Title by Doug Bigelow. A recounting of the 1915 season for the pro team from Oswego, New York and its claim to the title over the Fulton Nondescripts for the league located in northern and central part of the state.

Hunt Buys Cardinals, Moves Team to Dallas by Mark Speck. An amusing “what-if” story tracing the possible implications if the NFL had allowed Lamar Hunt to purchase the Chicago Cardinals franchise before he started the rival AFL.

Remembering Malcom Glazer by Denis Crawford, illustrated by Jared Kraus. A short tribute to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner who passed away last May.

2014 Player Deaths. A list of the pro football players who died last year, including information on the team(s) they played for, the date and location of their death (if known) and their age when they passed away.

Playing (Back) the Percentages: Part Two by Mark L. Ford. The second part of an entertaining look at teams' win-loss records by season (or winning percentages) covers the teams under .500 and contains, not surprisingly nearly every defunct franchise in the NFL.
