Pop Quiz for Refs

What happens when a game is not played because of the failure or refusal of one team to participate?

Answer:

 

In that event, the other team, if ready and willing to play, is the winner by a score of 2-0” (the points earned in a safety).

Why a two-point safety? Because those points are the league’s only scores that are not credited to any one player.This little-discussed rule is even less frequently applied, since dating back to 1920 there has been just one forfeit. Specifically, December 4, 1921, when the Rochester Jeffersons lost by forfeit to the Washington Pros/Senators.
