And they areusually of about the same size and weight. With all these points of similarity there is much that belongsto each separate position that goes to make it unwise for aback to attempt to play in more than one position. For in-stance, if the right half attempts to play at left half he mustaccustom himself to the use of the right side of his body ininterference instead of his left, to starting tow
