A diehard football fan, Scott H. Robbins has also found interest in the history of the game for which he loves. In an effort to amalgamate the fragmented history and often forgotten teams of the NFL’s past, Scott has gathered together the stories of these past teams as a sort of CliffsNotes version of NFL history. We all enjoy the play on, and often off, the field of our modern NFL franchises, with little thought of those that pioneered this League. There are a lot of franchises that many have never heard of and never referred to in modern NFL broadcasts. Teams like the Canton Bulldogs, the Pottsville Maroons, or the Los Angeles Buccaneers are all but phantom franchises in today’s League. Throughout the early part of the 20th century, modern-day football was developed. Players and owners that pushed their sport into the professional scope, with some success and also failure, but making these extinct teams the backbone of the juggernaut we know today. These ghosts of the League’s past are what we will explore in the Lost League.
