By Vincent Genovese

There hasn’t been a pro football team in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, since Calvin Coolidge was president, but don’t 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. Finally after eighty-three years, the readers of the rest of the country get to decide if the NFL has made a mistake.
