Football Deteriorating? SUPPORTERS EMPHATIC [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 15 September 1939
Football Deteriorating ? SUPPORTERS EMPHATIC THERE. has been much emphatic comment by football followers this year upon the standard of play in the A grade division of the Penin sula League. It has been stated in no uncertain terms that the play has deteriorated sadly and one cannot help agreeing. When it was suggested in these columns that one semi-final was of B grade standard, players and offi cials in that grade were very hostile. They considered their team work superior to that evidenced in many of the senior grade matches. The man-handling and slinging that seems to be part and parcel of the "dropping the ball" rule, introduced this year, cannot be entirely blamed. Some players in every team have quite obviously made the man their object rather than the ball, and this has led to reprisals right through the. combatant teams, with the result that; football has become crowded and un-'" interesting, and the gates have suffered. The comparatively poor attendance at the grand final ...

THE' struggle between Muornington and Frankston for the 1939 Premiership of the Mornington Pen insula Football League resulted in one of the keenest games seen this iseason.
