That seems fair fetched. Taft had this schedule for a few months and they now decided that Baltimore was too dangerous? Im sure the reports of the Dunbar game didn't help, which is also why the pervious 2 incidents cannot be ignored.
Either way Mervo gets a gift win in a game they were probably going to lose.
The extracurricular stuff that happened during the Mervo-Dunbar had nothing to do with the teams and fans inside the stadium. You are full of s**t to say otherwise. As I stated in another post, there are three sides to every story of the incident in Delaware., William Penn’s side, Mervo’s side and the truth, Are you naive enough to think that word of the the postponement of the Dunbar-Mervo game made it all the way to Cincinnati? If it did, it was a ludicrous excuse to forfeit the game. Cincinnati has a poor record of violent crime also and Mervo still travelled to Ohio last year to play.
