I think I have a new favourite. He played till the mid-60s but there aren't that many clips of him up. However what Lindsay did for the advancement of the sport was pretty cool and he seemed to have a hard-nosed playing style while backing up his hits or any dirty play by dropping the gloves despite being a small guy.
I don't think the league would have expanded to 12 teams if not for the PA being created leading to the financial side of the league becoming more open showing that it was possible to expand.
