Historical Quotations from The Lost Century of American Football:
"This half-way manner of settling a championship is only productive of further dissension, and gives plenty of ground to the press and the public for ridiculing the association." 1887, Pg 158....

“It is the lack of money which seems to our struggling colleges to be the root of all evil. They stand agape when they learn from the public press that the income from the Thanksgiving game of foot-ball is greater than the total annual expenditure of their trustees for the support of twenty-five professors and the education of 300 boys.” 1894, Pg. 555

“Football can be played by electric light and under such a huge roof as that of the
Madison Square Garden.” 1891, Pg. 310

“He not only played, but played well, desperately well at times, although he actually knew nothing of his actions and was placed in a physician’s care immediately after the game. It was some 12 hours before he recovered ordinary powers of thought, and then he knew nothing whatever of the game or its results after he was hurt.” 1892, Pg. 387

“In no other form of activity can we, during times of peace, hope to give as valuable training to youth as is afforded by this sport.” 1889, Pg. 212

“It may be that professional matches would be better attended because the contests would be between rival cities.” 1892, Pg. 443
