By ALEX YANNIS, NEW YORK TIMES
Published: October 2, 1983
From the archives of the old Tulsa Tribune, dated April 10th, 1978....
"We've only been in the league two and a half years and already half the teams hate us..."
"Give me another two years and we'll have them all."
Noel Lemon, 1980 Tulsa Roughnecks GM (1944-2012)
If you've stumbled upon this, you are viewing a site dedicated to the Tulsa Roughnecks, a professional soccer team that played in the North American Soccer League from 1978-1984 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is an independent tribute website not affiliated with Tulsa Roughnecks FC of the USL. Their site is: http://roughnecksfc.com This site is being updated and will later this summer (in this very space) start featuring a weekly newspaper article from the old Tulsa Tribune, courtesy of Tulsa Central Library; I hope you like the new format. Please send any suggestions, comments, or general feedback to: firstname.lastname@example.org Here's a preview: https://t.co/7Lh35CwEr6
