Show us the money

May 31, 1916
I have been scouting round football quarters and footballers’ meeting places, and I find that there is growing strength in the belief that well-known and class players will not risk their limbs a second season for mere expenses.

It is a very important matter and will be discussed later, but in view of the Scottish method last season and the loyalty of English League players last season, it will be nothing short of scandal if, say, a pound a week is not allowed to the English footballers, who are the only professional entertainers who are working without payment.
