Lessons of Football Season.
BILLY I MG-FORD, the prince of referees, savs under his own signature
in The Public Ledger," of Philadelphia ' 'Probably no plaving season
has i rod ICed more development in methods ol advancing the ball and,
perlorce. of gua:, I varied Styles of attack. This is due in no small
degree to the fact that tor the last three .ears the plav'mg code has remained
practical!) unchanged in its Important particulars. The development of a
football team is a slow process, and it requit I) proper material, hut
time, Study, experiment and interminable practice to obtain the results from
any particular sel ot th?ories upon methods ot attack and defence.'' Mr.
Langford, whose knowledge on the theories and practice ol football is
id tu 'M?)!.-, has hit tlie ball on the seam.
Glrides have been made in the development ot a running attack
this vear. not onl) bv two or three teams, but bv the big majority.
rhose ?? lies who foi three or four ve.irs have been harping on the
loSl >?! those marches down the field which made the old game s(. attractive
must now seek some other ground tor objecting to that revision of the code
which did so much tor football. As Walter Camp points out, a more or less
insistent demand was made on the members of the rules committee last
\.inter tor some amendment to the code which would make scoring easier
on a Straight running attack inside the 20-yard line. It was suggested even
that the d id in that 7one should be reduced to live v.irds
II downs, but, fortunately, the rules committee stood pat.
Till numbei ot tie games tor two or three years, particular!)
between teams reasi nabl) well matched, seemed to indicate that the
defence was favored out of all proportion to Ihe offence, but this con?
dition grew out ot (?merit) on the part ot the coaches; or. bettet yet, per?
I aps. to a lack ot knowledge ot the weapons at command. The lessons ot
i'ns seas,.. ; .. | clear!) to the fact lhai the game has come back to a fair
balance and that a team properly coached can c.urv a scoring punch on a
straight running attack alter a march ol anywhere from thirtv to si.vtv vards.
No longer can it be said that the best offence is a strop,; defence. There is
rtO lack of lmalitv to the attack these davs. a:i?i punting has returned to its
Let ihe Rules Alone.
II SEEMS, then, that ihe : i : the rules committee tins winter will
be more or let tory. Some little points always crop out during
the season winch need interpreting or straightening out. but Ibe code
is now established i what should be ,vi enduring basis. GuS Zeigier, and
several othei coaches, insist that the rules governing the forward pass
should he further clarified. His ma) be true, but it strikes me that their
complaint should be directed more against officials who are not thoroughly
tamiliar with the proper interpretations th] I the rules themselves.
The Lnghsir is reasonably elastic, but it is not ahvavs possible to
trame rules ope- to .. c construction .' must u.-e his g-?) matter,
hut he must use u large!) along lines laid down by precedent oi established
interpretations. Ihe rules relating to a punted ball which crosses the goal
to whethei it ,hou I Chback or a ..?tn v. hen touched by a
defending r ..de a little Jcrer ;.. avoid which
greu out of a pl.iv oi this kind in the Yale-Harvard game. Ihe result of
that ruling, however, was due, in mv . . ore to the referee not being
'?'?? a p ee than to anv real fault in th | ot the rule \ .
official at best is human, ., d some mistakes are bound to be made from the
rerjr natui cope oi the duties involved.
