1925 NFL Championship controversy

Controversy surrounds who actually won the 1925 NFL Championship. Officially, the Chicago Cardinals are listed as the 1925 NFL champions because they finished with the best record. But many Pottsville fans claim that the Maroons are really the champions. The Maroons and the Cardinals were the top contenders for the title, with Pottsville winning a late-season meeting between them, 21-7. But the Maroons scheduled a game against a team of University of Notre Dame All-Stars in Philadelphia (and winning 9-7) on the same day that the Frankford Yellow Jackets were scheduled to play a game in the same city. Frankford protested, saying that it was violating their protected territory rights. The Arizona Cardinals are a National Football League team based in Tempe, Arizona. ... Not to be confused with the University of Notre Dame Australia The University of Notre Dame is a leading Roman Catholic institution of higher learning. ... The Frankford Yellow Jackets were a team in the National Football League. ...


Although NFL president Joe Carr warned the Maroons in writing that they faced suspension if they played in Philadelphia, the Maroons claim that Carr approved the game during a telephone call, and played anyway. In response, Carr fined the club, suspended it from all league rights and privileges (including the right to play for the NFL championship), and re-turned its franchise to the league.


In 2003 the NFL decided to again examine the case regarding the 1925 championship. But in October the NFL voted 30-2 not to reopen the case. Thus the Cardinals are still listed as the 1925 NFL champions. [1] 2003 (MMIII) is a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... October is the tenth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with the length of 31 days. ...
