"Football Dynasty on the March." The thrill of victory: best sports stories from the pages of Maclean's. Michael Benedict, 159-165. Toronto: Viking Canada, 2003.

AB: Reprinted from the September 1980 issue of Maclean's magazine is an article that highlights the conquests of the Edmonton Eskimos football team and their consistent success in the sport. Between 1950 and 1960, the team was never out of the Western Conference playoffs and appeared in five national championships, winning the Grey Cup 3 times (1954-1956) and after a lag in the 1960s while the Saskatchewan Roughriders dominated the West, Edmonton went on to re-establish a football dynasty early in the 1970s.
