IMO C.(sounds a bit odd but seems gramatically correct than the rest)

(A)'who' does not have a clear referrent.
(B)'alone of the' is incorrect.
(C)among is correct.
(D)'were' is wrong.
(E)'only of the' is incorrect...pronoun needed before " had sided"..

prasun84,

you are saying that who can not refer to Oneida. the better version is 'which'. Am i right?
and Oneida is always single, yeah?

"who" is a sticky term - meaning if the author wants to use "who", then Oneida has to be right next to it. However, who in the sentence is referring to the League. (which isn't what author intended)

yes.."who" doesnt have a clear referrant means it might be pointing to league which is wrong.
