    The last living member of the 1904 Red Sox --- second baseman Freddy Parent --- died in 1972.

    Who exactly would benefit from this?

    Other than the growing sense of entitlement, nobody and nothing.

    I already thought they had the most insufferable MLB fan base before 04 when they were constantly whining and bleating about how "tortured" and cursed they were, but god have they ever become even worse since then.

    Christy Mathewson vs. Cy Young would have probably been worth the price of admission ...

    Except Bama never would've bothered with a petition or a request. They'd have simply claimed it and hung the 1904 banner decades ago. Everybody else is an amateur next to the Tide when it comes to the claiming bogus titles game.

    Unless it's Notre Dame. Irish count national championships awarded by Dunkel, Berryman Systems, the Helms Foundation, the International News Service, College Football Researchers Association and something called the Foundation for the Analysis of Competitions and Tournaments.
    And sorry for the thread-jack, but it got me started. That second place on the all-time victory list Notre Dame touts (behind Michigan)? The Irish count victories over the following (in the late 1880s and early 1900s): American Medical College, Bennett Medical College, Chicago Dental, Chicago Physicians and Surgeons, Englewood High School in Chicago (1899), the Illinois Cycling Club, Indianapolis Artillery, Iowa Pre-Flight, Missouri Ostepaths (what they they have against the medical profession), North Division High School, the South Bend Athletic Club, South Bend High School and the Toledo Athletic Association.
    Now that's some shameless stuff.

    I'm guessing from 1880-early 1900s there weren't many teams and you kind of played whoever could scrape one together. Have you done as much research on teams other programs played back then?
