Clipping:Fogel on the rules makers
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, January 11, 1888|
[reporting on the meeting of the Philadelphia scorers 12/31/87] Mr. Fogel said he wanted to go squarely upon record as saying that he did not consider the men who were formulating our playing and scoring rules as competent to do the work assigned to them. He argued that these rules were made by a certain number of gentlemen who were financially interested in clubs, but who had no practical knowledge of the game and never scored a game in their lives. If these men would listen to sensible suggestions offered them by players and scorers who know more about the game than they do, our rules would not be half as defective and bad as they now are.
