The rules following have been re-arranged so that the player can easily see who has charge of each section and what the penalty is for violating the same. A few suggestions are also added to call attention to some points that are often overlooked. The rules are very important and a close, study by every one who wishes to play the game will do as much to prepare them to play the game properly as will anything else. There is entirely too much ignorance in regard to football rules.

These are the official football rules for 1905, reprinted from Spalding's Official Football Guide, by special permission.
