1959 GREY CUP GAME (Saturday, November 28 at Toronto - 33,133)
WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (14-4) 21, HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (11-5) 7 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers played the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for the third straight time in the Grey Cup final. The Bombers won the rubber match in a defensive showdown at the new CNE Stadium in Toronto. The Bombers went on an 18-point scoring run in the final 12 minutes to seal the victory. Winnipeg took the initial lead on their opening drive when Garry James was successful on a 21-yard field goal attempt. In the second quarter, Hamilton’s Vince Scott blocked Charlie Shepard’s punt and chased the ball into the Winnipeg end zone. Scott jumped on the ball, but the slippery pigskin squirted loose and the Winnipeg’s Jack Delveaux finally recovered it. Hamilton had to settle for a single point, rather than a potential touchdown. The Bombers held on to a 3-1 lead at halftime. Hamilton missed on another touchdown opportunity in the third quarter. With the Tiger-Cats on the Winnipeg four-yard line, the Ticats were stopped on consecutive plays. Rather than go for a touchdown, Hamilton elected to go for three points. Steve Oneschuk’s field goal gave Hamilton the lead, and he added to it later in the quarter on another three-point kick. Charlie Shepard then closed the gap to 7-4 on a single. The Bombers got the break they needed early in the fourth quarter. Hamilton’s Gerry McDougall, who had trouble holding on to the ball the entire game, lost it on the Hamilton 43 after a jarring hit by Roger Savoie. Winnipeg’s Bud Tinsley recovered, and two plays later the Bombers scored a touchdown. Farrell Funston went down the sidelines and cut in to beat Lew Chandler and take Ken Ploen’s 41-yard pass to the Hamilton two-yard line. From there, Charlie Shepard got over for the score. Chandler was filling in for an injured Ralph Goldston, who hurt his knee in the second quarter. The Bombers never trailed again. With the wind at his back, Shepard kicked three consecutive rouges. The Tiger-Cats’ attempted drive to tie the score late in the game was stopped on a third down gamble, and the Bombers took over on the Hamilton 33. Ploen hit Ernie Pitts with a 33-yard touchdown pass a few seconds before the final whistle. The 1950s was a successful period for the West, winning five of six Grey Cups to close the decade.
INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (1958-59) - News of the league first appeared in April 1958, with the announcement that Jack Corbitt, the former owner of the several minor league baseball teams, planned top operate the 12-year league in 1959. Teams would be in Dallas, Denver, Miami and Houston, those four having been granted franchises, and the other teams to be selected from Boston, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Toronto, Montreal, Mexico City, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Havana and Louisville. By July 1959, it was revealed the league did not plan to compete with the NFL, and was looking at franchises in St. Paul-Minneapolis, Boston, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston and Miami. Nothing was ever heard about the league after brief mentions in July and August 1959.
TRANS-AMERICA CONFERENCE (1959) - The league began as a minor-league (Mid-America Football League), but it was revealed in July 1959 during Congressional testimony by NFL Commissioner Bert Bell that the league wanted to challenge the NFL. Former NY Giant QB Travis Tidwell said the league would consist of Houston, Denver, Minneapolis, New York, Dallas, and Los Angeles, and said other possible members are Louisville, Boston, Miami, Seattle, San Francisco and Buffalo. Some of the organizers behind the Continental League (baseball) were reportedly behind the TAC.
