National Players Are Upset Because the Owners Want Less Men By Art Buchwald WASHINGTON As if the United States did not have enough trouble, the National Football League players have gone out on strike, and there is a possibility that none of the veterans will be there for the koff in the fall. Although the disputed issues have to do with wages, dis- cipline and the power of the football commissioner, the main problem is automation. A professsional football player. Bronco Beaulandovich, told me. "The owners are trying to cut down the number of men on the field. They maintain you don't need 11 men on a side to play a game. The> claim they now have computers that can kick, pass and block in one-tenth the time it now takes a man to do it. But what they don't say is that if you cut down the number of men on a team you run great safety risks. A com- puter can't protect a quarterback like a human being. "The football owners are trying to save money on the payroll at the expense of our jobs. We're not going to stand for it. The rules BUCHWALD say you have to have 11 men on a side and we're going to stick by it." Horace Maldabeth. a football owner who has been nego- tiating the contract, told me. "There has been too much featherbedding on football teams, and it is no longer economi- cally feasible to maintain all those players on the field. We've done studies to show that the guards can lie easily replaced by machines. The ends do nothing but stand around all day. and the football union refuses to let tackles touch the bull. Add Maldabeth showed me a computer that was programmed to do almost everything a player could. "We can put one of ihese at each goal line and play a full hour's game in 111 minutes. These computers can produce twice as many touch- downs, fumbles and intercepted passes as any team in the league. Why should we keep men on the payroll when they add iiulhmg hi the "Hut don't computers lake some fun out of the game'.'" I "I'nssililj. bill our concern is profits. How can we explain our stockholders that we are paying II players when five could (in the .job'.'" Maldabeth "Don't forget, we're not talking only about the II men on the field. There are also on the bench doing absolutely nothing. No football team can afford to have players sitting on their duffs hiding Ilieir heads under blankets." "Aren't the players worried about job "We're willing lo work that out. We will guarantee the union that no active player will lie fired from his job because of automation. But if he gels injured or plays out his con- tract, then he cannot be replaced by another man. I can't think of anything fairer." i went back to Bronco Keaulandovich, the players' repre- sentative, and told him what Maldabclh had said. "Thai's a bunch of he said. "Compiilers or no computers. I ain'l going lo send no guy nut on the field unless lie has II! men lo protect him. We've been playing football by hand for years and we ain'l aboul lo (In it different now
