I didn't ask Doyle, but as I understand it...
Back when this term was first used, it referred to the way that he made his living, on the road. Driving from one underground poker game
to the next was their routine, and being a rounder meant you were generally operating on at least the edge of the law, if not completely under it.
They were considered "lower class" by the few people at the time that made their living at the "legal" games or casinos
