This historic game would prove a microcosm of much about the league: Along with two of their home games being postponed by hurricanes, they attracted poor home crowds enroute to finishing last with a 3—11 record.
The league would have a wide gap between its best and worst teams, and its standings would be remarkably consistent from year to year. In the East, New York was the only team to win more than three games, finishing 10—3—1.
Brooklyn and Buffalo were seven games behind, followed by Miami. The title game was a tight affair, with the Browns coming from behind late in the fourth quarter to defeat the Yankees 14—9.
Despite the fiasco in Miami, the AAFC had enjoyed a successful debut, establishing a high level of play and doing well at the gate. The NFL likewise set attendance highs for both its season and title game.
However, as salaries shot up with two leagues competing for players: In a remarkable move, Commissioner Crowley a successful former college coach gave up a five-year contract to become their part-owner and coach.
Ingram was named to replace him as commissioner. To replace the Seahawks, the Baltimore group turned down in was issued a franchise. The new Baltimore Colts would play in Municipal Stadium. The AAFC enjoyed its most successful season in Inside" and Glenn Davis "Mr. Outside"and amid great publicity unsuccessfully attempted to get the military to permit them to play during their post-graduation furloughs.
Los Angeles followed, and Chicago was last at 1— Former Commissioner Crowley would not return either as coach or owner. The title game was a defensive struggle, with the Browns again defeating the Yankees, 14—3.
By this time a pattern had emerged among the franchises. The Browns, Yankees, 49ers, Dons, and Bills all had stable ownership and at least one winning season.
The Browns led both leagues in attendance by a wide margin, the Yankees and Dons outpaced their crosstown NFL rivals on the field and at the gate, and the 49ers and Bills despite a small stadium also enjoyed good attendance. However, the Dodgers, Rockets, and to a lesser extent the Colts were having serious problems.
After a decent start inthe Rockets collapsed on the field and found themselves playing before tens of thousands of empty seats in huge Soldier Field. The first-year Colts did reasonably well at the gate but finished last.
All of these teams were at the bottom of the standings and all were sold after the season, the Rockets for the second time. Inattendance in both leagues declined, and negotiations to end the war became serious.
To counter this, Commissioner Ingram attempted to get the strongest teams to distribute some players to the weakest. He was modestly successful: Tittle to the Colts, who enjoyed their first good season, and the Yankees were generous enough to fall into mediocrity. For the first time, the division races were close.
One featured excellence, the other mediocrity. In the West, San Francisco and Cleveland both remained undefeated far into the season. On November 14, nearly 83, a record in Cleveland Municipal Stadium watched the 9—0 Browns win a 14—7 defensive struggle over the 10—0 49ers.
They met again two weeks later in San Francisco, with the Browns now 12—0 and the 49ers 11—1. The Browns again won narrowly, this time 31—28, clinching first place. The 49ers finished a heartbreaking second and out of the postseason at 12—2.Cost of Winning: What contributing factors play the most significant roles in increasing the winning percentage of a major league baseball team?
