"At one time when players were disabled, trainers dashed on to the field and rubbed their stomachs. That treatment was the cure-all, even if the players' injury was a sprained ankle. The method is different nowadays, and the trainer seizes the player's legs as if they were part of a wheelbarrow and almost stands him on his head. He argues that this movement sends the blood back to the head." (Herald July 28 p3)
