He was their ticket to Red Grange, the man who could prop up the rickety financial legs of the NFL and move professional football into the big time. Besides, Halas had heard the rumors that rival NFL teams were also after Grange, and realized that Pyle was offering him the inside track. 37 Rumors of the imminent signing had already set off a firestorm of protest.
