Canadian Football News in 1901[edit | edit source]

The ORFU stated that all players must sign amateur cards. CRU rules that the ball was to be placed on the ground in line with the front foot of the Scrimmage before the lines could come together. John Thrift Meldrum Burnside's revised football rules were put into play in the University of Toronto Inter-faculty games, and later in the Mulock Cup championship games.
