Until the NFL put a stop to it they would supply a bench warmer with his nose candy in exchange for his play book for a few hours.
The Bears SB win was the worst example or at least the one I know the most about..
The year before they played Eddie DeBartolo's 49ers in NFC championship. Vegas had 49 favored all week by 9 to 11. Chicago sports betting cards came
up with 49ers by 19. Now the 49ers were sure to win but not by 19. Well look up the final score!
A few weeks later the head of mob sports betting in Chicago was found dead in the trunk of his car. A big price to pay for the misprint. The mob had

Bears defensive co-ord Buddy Ryan had 4 superbowl rings and said he was least proud of the one he got from the Bears. Buddy got the copies of the
playbooks and drilled Singletary who thought Buddy was a genius
OK then there was Don Schula. A wise old veteran. He figured out real quick what was going on and used nothing but audibles to give the Bears their
When Ditka went to NO he through out all his Bears trophy stuff, into the garbage, which a mover then reclaimed
Connect the dots. I have many more I dare not reveal.
