I posted in a thread in the Major League Baseball forum that
Hinky Haines is the only player to win a championship in both the MLB and the NFL...

he was on the 1923 NY Yankees(MLB) and the 1927 NY Giants (NFL)...

I went to look the NY Football Giants 1927 roster see if this guy won the championships with two of the greatest athelete's that ever lived, Babe Ruth and Jim Thorp...

I knew that Jim Thorp played one year with he NY Giants but it was actually 1925...

while checking the 1927 roster looking for his name, I noticed they only had a 25 man roster...

I know the players today are W-A-Y bigger and faster but a 25 man roster with the equipment they wore 85 years ago doesn't seem possible...

They played both ways with limited substitution. It wasn't until 1950 that free substitution was allowed.

Which is about the same time that the Lions stopped winning championships.
