nfl franchise in youngstown?

Click here for an interesting little story about football teams in the midwest during the 1910s.

It seems Youngstown, back when it was the 50th largest city in the United States, was granted a National Football League franchise in 1922.

UPDATE: there was a news item today about a proposal to build a Sports Museum in Downtown Youngstown. Maybe the above story would be a cool exhibit . . . More information can be found here.
