BKLYN Dodgers Football tshirt
Lots of exciting stuff happened to a team called the Brooklyn Dodgers. Unfortunately, it wasn't this Brooklyn Dodgers...
The Brooklyn Dodgers were an American football team that played in the National Football League from 1930 to 1943.
Beginning in 1942, the team went into a steep decline, as World War II caused a shortage of players and fans. Sutherland, Parker and several other players left the team to join themilitary. Mike Getto took over the coaching duties, however with the core of the team gone, the Dodgers sunk to a 3-8-0 record. A year later the team ended up only winning two games.
In 1944, the team was renamed the Tigers but suffered a 0-10 regular season record. In a desperate attempt for survival, the team merged with the Boston Yanks for the 1945 season. The merged team played four home games in Boston and one in New York. But fans from neither cities cared as they finished with a 3-6-1 record. The merger occurred after the 1945 NFL Draft.
