Tribune (Newspaper) - September 7, 1976, Tipton, Indiana Big names axed by NFL clubs It has happened so many times before: an assistant coach or an equipment man walks over to a player and says the fatal words, or^merely points to the door of the head coach’s office. No more needs be said; it’s over. Quarterback Jim Del Gaizo wasn’t pleased when he got the news from the Miami Dolpb’ns, nor were Dallas running backs Ron Johnson and Duane Thomas, who found their comeback hopes submerged under a heavy rush of National Football League cuts. Big names and small, stars and non-stars were among the more than 120 victims on cutdown day. Del Gaizo, ¡ contributing 25 completions in 40 attempts for 372 yards and three touchdowns to Miami’s unbeaten preseason, was bitter. “I know this,” he said, ‘‘there’s no way this team would be 6-0 without me.” His reward, he added, was a kick in the pants. But there were many who joined him on the sidelines Monday as rosters were pared to their 43-man limit. Pittsburgh trimmed quarterback Terry Hanratty; Los Ang,eleé dropped wide receiver Jack Snow; Washington waived defensive end John Matus:^k; San Diego sacrificed kicker Bruce Gossett, and Minnesota did likewise with veteran running backs Dave Oslwrn and Oscar Reed and defensive back Pete Athas. The New York Jets dropped backup quarterback J.J. Jones. Thomas, known in the jaast for moodiness, had come to the Cowboys’ camp with a new image and hopes of earning a job on the team with which he started his career six years ago. Johnson, who played out the option year of his contract with the New York Giants last season and signed with Dallas, twice has gained over 1.000 yards in a season. In some cases, there were words of regret by the people who made the moves. ‘‘It’s a sports tragedy when a player of Jack Snow’s caliber is released,” said Rams General Manager Don Klosterman, Scoreboard AMERICAN LEAGUE East W New York 82 52 Balt Cleve.

The players and coaches know it; now its up to them to settle down for tonight’s ^Janada Cup contest against SwSten. After routing Team USA in two pre-tournamént exhibitions last week, the Canadian entry came out'» looking for more of the same at Montreal in Sunday night’s encounter with the Americans. They got it, to be sure, breezing to a 3-0 lead and outshooting USA 17-3 in a frenzied first period. Phip Esposito banked a shot in off defenseman Gary Sargent at 4:47, Pete Mahovlich batted in a rebound and Bobby Hull swept a wrist shot past Pete LoPresti before the goa ie could kick out his left leg. But the Canadians admitted later that they were running around as though the textbook on positional hockey had be«n printed in Martiah. Defenseman Denis Potvin expressed concern over the lack of finesse and the trend towards individual play instead of teamwork in moving the pucx. The Canadians managed s 4- -2 triumph, spoiling a masterful performance oy ’ LoPresti and a gutty p€)r-formance by his mates, But Potvin readily opined that the surprisingly difficult victory ‘‘showed iis we’re not going to Jbe able to float through this thing.” who called the 33-year-old Snow ‘‘a brilliant receiver in the tradition of Elroy Hirsch and Tom Feara” There is no way the St. Louis Cardinals can get defensive end Walt Patulski back for this season. He and four teammates were placed on the injured reserve list for the campaign. The New England Patriots picked up wide receiver Marlin Briscoe from Detroit in exchange for a future draft choice. San Diego acquired placekicker Toni Fritsch from Dallas through the same route, then cut wide receiver Dwight McDonald and safety Maurice Tyler. In other major moves, Kansas City cut veteran defensive back Jim Marsalis; Detroit dealt quarterback Bill Munson to Seattle for a draft choice; Chicago cut former All-Pro wide receive Bob Grim, and the Giants cut backup quarterback David Jaynes and kicker George Hunt. Unser wins 500 at Cal ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) — Johnny Rutherford collected $37,736 for his second-place finish in the California 500 and beefed up his chance of winning the U.S. Auto Club driving title with its $50,000 prize. . But Rutherford, the two-time Indianapolis 500 champion was less than happy Sunday after Bobby Unser outdueled him for the $82,986 first prize at Ontario Motor Speedway. ‘‘The car was not handling good all day,” said Rutherford of his McLaren-Offy, ‘‘It was understeering, particularly when I was low on fuel. ‘‘It handled okay just running on track,” Rutherford said, ‘‘but it gave me trouble in traffic.” And Rutherford, who started on the inside of the third row and held the lead for 22 of the 200 laps, had quite a bit to say about the ‘‘traffic.” ‘‘This was one of the most physical races I can remember running in a long time,” Rutherford remarked. ‘‘There were a lot of things happening. ‘‘There were a lot of super slow cars out there, a lot of near misses and a lot of incidents. — ‘‘And when guys got close together, it seemed like the wind made aerodynamics change and it made things scary.” The going was rough at times, as four starters—Danny Ongais, Pancho Carter, Billy Vukovich and John Mahler— were knocked out in crashes, although none was seriously injured. Too, because the lead was hotly contested through the race and the pace-setters stayed close to one another, there was a lot of close-range scrambling, particularly when the leaders were lapping slower cars. Rutherford, running well back of Unser with seven laps to go, got a break when the caution flag went out. But when the green flag was given two laps later, Unser quickly shot to a comfortable lead again and had the racé in his pocket. Rutherford picked up 800 points toward the national title and now holds a 3,790-3,440 lead over second-place Gordon CARROLL’S NEW MERCHANDISE CLUB STARTS SEPT. 11th JOIN NOW! \ « FINE SELECTION OF MERCNENDISE STOP IIN-SEE US!

River Downs closes out great year CINCINNATI (AP) — River Downs closed out its most successful stand in history Monday, with a Labor Day crowd of 12,195 sending the mutual handle over the $1 million mark for the first time. Geauga ' Bonsi and Topinabee, both trained by former University of Louisville basketball star Jim Morgan, won the featured $37,550 divisions of the Governor’s Buckeye Cup Handicap. Geauga Bonsi won the first division in 2:04 2-5 to pay $2.80, $2.20 and $2.20. Topinabee went the mile and a quarter in 2:04 3-5 to return $2.60, $2.40 and $2.20. The turnout was the largest ever in the track’s 51-year history and resulted in a record handle of $1,033,386 for the 10-race program. The daily double paid $15.80 on the 4-8 combination of Shatin and Ramie, while the consolation double of 4-9 returned $5.80 on Random Shopp>er.
