The Same Old Cry
The Same Old Cry.
In the same issue of Spike (October, 1905) is an article entitled "The Decadence of Rugby," in which the writer says, "Unless Rugby can be made pleasurable it must decline. Its recruits will drop off and hockey, tennis, or association will reap the benefit . . . . . . . . I have no time to deal with the drinking and gambling which is said to accompany football. If this drinking and gambling does follow a match the wholesomeness of the sport is, of course utterly wasted on the men."
