    From the article:

    "Lang made baseball writers feel special and committed himself to disclosing "frauds." No Baseball Writers Association of America cards went to radio or television reporters. Bill Madden, Lang's colleague at the Daily News, coined the term "foof" for all non-newspaper writers. Lang was forever on foof patrol."

    I repeat: Norm MacLean is amomg those with a BBWAA card. I guess no foof patrol is foolproof.

    (So by Madden's standard, Roger Kahn and Pat Jordan would be foofs?)
