Just thought I'd start a thread to break the monotony of all the covid19 chat etc. I was really a fan of the Maulers as well the USFL. At the time I was in 7th grade and loved the thought of spring football. I remember meeting Mike Rozier a few years back and chatting with Sam Clancy about those days. Very interesting stuff about the team and owner Ed Debartolo sr. If the Maulers survived that 84 season Mr Debartolo was going to make the team into a powerhouse. The NFL owners didn't like the fact that Ed jr owned an NFL team and Ed sr owned a USFL team so the Maulers were forced to fold under pressure regardless of what some articles contend. Lots of Youngtown connections too. Still have a few items from the Maulers. Also Trump owned the NJ Generals.
