Students of ancient rhetoric did engage in a good deal of practice with artificial rhetorical situations taken from history or literature or law (the rhetorical exercises were called progymnasmata and declamation). However, this practice was aimed at teaching them something about the community they would later serve, as well as about rhetoric. In other words, they did not study rhetoric only to learn its rules. Instead, their study was preparation for a life of active citizenship. A rhetorical situation is made up of several elements: the issue for discussion, the audience for the discussion and their relationship to the issue, as well as the rhetor, her reputation, and her relation to the issue.

In football the relevant network of interpretation is the rules of the game. Without these rules, the exact placement of a player's arm or the exact point at which his feet touched the ground pretty much lose their relevance. (Sometimes football players suddenly switch to a network of interpretation that allows them to read an arm in the face as an act of aggression. ) Here's another example that demonstrates that facts are not very interesting or persuasive unless they are read within a network of interpretation: geologists use the fossil record as evidence to support the theory of evolution.

That is, geologists have read a series of natural objects in such a way as to construe them as evidence for a huge natural process that nobody could actually have witnessed. If you want to object that a fossil is a fact, please do. You are quite right. Our point is that it is not a very useful (or interesting) fact apart from its interpretation as a fossil, rather than a rock, and its location within in the network of interpretation called evolutionary theory. Using other networks of interpretation, a fossil can just as easily be read as a doorstop or a weapon.
