1946-47 Gloversville Glovers (NYSL)

1946-47 GLOVERSVILLE GLOVERS
NEW YORK STATE PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE
Western Division
Finished: 0-7 .000, (0-34 .000*) 4th place


Coached by Don Dutton, Gloversville got off to a rough start, losing their opening game to Saratoga by 22 points. Over the next five games, they would not finish that close, losing by 31, 25, 25, 34 any 28 points. On January 8, they battled the also-hapless and un victorious Troy team into overtime before falling. Standing at a record of seven losses against zero win, owner Leo Sturm stated that he would either sell the team or turn the franchise back to the league. No buyer was found, and the franchise was terminated. It was eventually ruled that the Glovers would forfeit the games they didn't play, 27 in all (apparently including 3 to Troy, which counted in Troy's record not as wins but also as losses, since the Troy team would meet a similar fate as Gloversville later that season. This is why the final standings don't prove out with wins and losses)

 * Twenty-seven forfeit losses: three to Albany, three to Cohoes, five to Mohawk, two to Saratoga, five to Schenectady, three to Troy and six to Utica.
