[editorial matter] At the risk of offending Mr. A. G. Mills, the able author of the National Agreement—without its fantastic latter-day attachments, and of provoking a howl from the imitative and opaque magnates, we venture to suggest that the Reserve Rule has outlived its usefulness and that some decent and equitable substitute for it should be inserted in the National Agreement in the impending revision of that compact. The Sporting Life December 20, 1890

[editorial matter] With an equal division of gate receipts and long time contracts there is no longer need of the slavery of the Reserve Rule and its concomitant, the Sales System, which was so degrading to players and so demoralizing to the financial interests of clubs. The Sporting Life December 27, 1890
