Schedule


Championship

The Rams were scheduled to play the first place Boston Shamrocks in an AFL Championship Game. But Boston players refused to play and forfeited the game, giving the league title by default to the Rams, after the Shamrocks could not make payroll. However, the Shamrocks, who finished with the best regular season record, are usually credited as the league champs in most subsequent records.
