The N. Y. World thinks that the Harvard-Yale game "showed that the rules are not sufficiently strict in regard to the penalties for foul tackling. For this offense the penalty should be the removal of the player guilty of it from the field during the half-time in which it was committed. In regard to the block game, the only rule likely to put a stop to that is to make so many safety touchdowns equal to a regular touchdown. Four touchdowns are equal to a goal, and it would be well to make four safety touchdowns equal to a regular touchdown, thereby giving the attacking side the right to try at goal whenever the defensive side had touched down for safety four times. The code of rules also needs revising from beginning to end, especially in regard to the order of the rules, so as to make them useful in acquiring a knowledge of the game from the mere reading of the code. The game of foot-ball should certainly be what its name indicates, but under the Rugby Union as well as under the American college code, the game should be called 'wrestling foot-ball.' It would be well to give greater privileges in points of play whenever the ball is kicked and to lessen the opportunities for constant rushes. The points of 'scrimmaging,' of 'passing' and of running in with the ball, which are now features of the American college game, need not be interfered with, as they necessarily involve strategic play."
