The Owls complain that they were shamefully treated in East St. Louis yesterday, when they crossed the river to play the National Reserves. Complaints of this character are very frequent from clubs visiting East St. Louis, and unless managers of the local nines do not correct abuses complained of, it will be advisable for all outside clubs to ignore challenges from that quarter.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, June 2, 1884
Yeah. We here on the east side of the river have been having to listen to the whining of the people on the wrong side of the river for a long time. We've learned to tune them out.
