Give Credit At Least!!

I know I don't own the rights to these photographs on this Rowdies Blog, but it has taken a lot of time and a lot money to put these photographs on here. I have payed over the odds for items, taken time to scan and clean up the photos.
So "1970s Soccer USA" or other people that pass these photos off as their own finds, at least give this Blog some credit.
It really isn't too hard to do, I - myself have given credit to people who have helped me in the past with certain photos. So it can be done.
Thank you!!
