Note biografiche

Football was first professionalized in 1892, when William Heffelfinger and Ben "Sport" Donnelly each received a large amount of cash to play for the Allegheny Athletic Association of the Western Pennsylvania Senior Independent Sports Conference. Through the 1890s as well as the early part of the 20th century, professional football was mainly a regional sport, along with most informal circuits located around a single state as well as region with only constrained play outside state lines. There were no national crews or tournaments for the skilled game, despite numerous tries: an earlier National Football League (backed by what would become Major Group Baseball) was unable to grow beyond Pennsylvania in 1902, the New York City-based Planet Series of Pro Football tournament disbanded after two months and lack of fan fascination, and other attempts to both combine existing circuits or even create new ones from the very beginning never materialized.
