CFCL Owners of 1991

Prior to 1992 (other than the recently posted 1989 season) we didn't take pictures of the draft.  So we have to use our imagination to picture: [not pictured from left] Kelly Barone (Six Packs), Eric Lamb (Lambchops), David Mahlan (David's Copperfields), Rich Bentel (Dem Rebels), Paul Skupien (Mr. Paul's Swordfish), Bob Monroe (Bald Eagles and eventual 1991 CFCL Champion), Dave Holian (David's Ruffins).

1991 saw a return of seven owners.  Pat McGuire left after three years (following 1991 he would return for two more seasons).  This would also prove to be the final season of the Bald Eagle franchise.  Bob was continually promoted up the Hancock Fabric chain of command and landed in Colorado.  The pre-Internet distance combined with work and family time requirements proved to be too much for Bob to consider running a team long distance.  However, in his final year, Bob would finally break through the ceiling of his three previous second place finishes and take home the cherished CFCL title.

Perhaps the biggest change the CFCL saw that year was on the draft table.  Kelly Barone introduced the Big Cards for owners to flip over if they were out of the bidding.  Despite all the technological advancements our country has seen in the following 23 years, the flip cards are a staple of the CFCL Draft Table.

David and Michelle opened their doors to the CFCL on Sunday, April 14 at 10am in Oak Park.
