Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta CANADA IN 74 WMMM N.V.T. AMTWILLIAM8 TIUVIL The Letkbridge Herald THIRD SECTION Alterta, WtxtaMday, April 21-32 Pat Sullivan attempting blackmail? Davidson, Gaudaur battle Herald- Sports Before Monday was many hours old Don Shula, coach of the Miami Dolphins, was on the phone to 14 players who have yet to sign 1974 contracts. the Dolphins, and for that matter the entire National Football League, were rocked by the signing of Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield and Jim Kiick by Toronto Northmen of the World Football League Sunday, for a reported Faced with losing three key players from the Super Bowl champion Dolphins Simla is not going to let any more of his players depart and foil his bid for an unpredecented three straight Super Bowls However, he may be too late. In almost every story written on the signing of the big three the word credibility was high in the main lead. What it means simply is that the WFL means business. If it can-sign anymore players with the capability of the three Dolphins it will be here to stay. Joe Robbie, who some say could have prevented the jump to the WFL by Csonka, Kiick and Warfield, says he will sue. He's not sure who but he has threatened legal action. From this comer of the world he hasn't a leg to stand on. The three players in question will play out their option this year and will depart for greener pastures in Toronto. The only thing that really bothers me, other than the fact experts say the WFL could bring about the end of Canadian Football League, is that one could almost expect a lame duck season from the three players. Shula says he doesn't know if they will give 100 per cent or not, he has-never been faced with this situation. All three players say they will give it their all in an effort to give the Miami fans a third Super Bowl. That, however, remains to be seen. It's almost like a fellow who has given his notice that he will be leaving his job. Can you honestly say he will give 100 per cent those final two weeks? In Chicago, executive director of the NFL Player's Association made it very clear that the WFL can do what the NFL could never do... Destroy the CFL This opinion is shared by Jake Gaudaur, CFL Commissioner. Gaudaur said that the WFL's presence in Canada threatened to overwhelm the CFL with affluence. Not all players are jumping at a chance to play with the WFL A number of players have spurned offers from the new group. But enough established stars appear headed for the new league Only one question remains unanswered "how long can the World Football League remain in business shelling out the money they have thus Meanwhile George Reed, president of the Canadian" Football League Players' Association, says he's happy about the World Football League's newly won recognition but still supports the government's move to kick the WFL out of Canada. Asked about his reaction to the federal government's plans to introduce legislation banning the WFL from Canada, Reed said: "I don't want to see any situation that would jeopardize the CFL, but frankly it's not the Northmen in Toronto as such that I find disturbing. "In that sense, I agree with the government's actions. I don't think it's the Northmen that threaten the CFL, but what would surely follow." By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gary Davidson, president of the World Football League, and Jake Gaudaur, commissioner of the Canadian Football League, had a long- range confrontation Tuesday. Davidson said in Honolulu thee signing of Miami Dolphins' stars Larry Consonka, Paul Warfield and Jim Kiick by Toronto Northmen of the WFL "drove the point home" that the new league it to be taken Davidson also waa reported have taid that if the Canadian government blocks the WFL's entry into Canada, his league will not honor CFL contracts Health Minister Marc Lalonde has said that legislation to bar the WFL from Canada will be presented to Commons be- fore Batter. "We may have to go to court over DavUMMTnid, "but it will be In an American court and I dent think we will have much trouble." Gaudaur, la Toronto for meetings between the CFL owners and representatives of the league players' association, said 'Davidson's threat to retaliate against the 'an attempt to the Canadian The season for scalpers, playoff ticket prices up NEW YORK (CP) Playoff ticket fever has hit National Hockey League cities once again despite a jump in prices from the regular season. Price increases range from 50 per cent in Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Chicago to nearly 100 per cent in Toronto and double in Los Angeles if the Kings reach the finals. However, when prices are compared with last year's playoffs, the increases are smaller. Playoff tickets were so scarce in New York (SOD) and Philadelphia (600) that the managements of the Rangers and Flyers decided to hold lotteries to parcel them out. In New York, scalpers predict under-the-table Elayoff prices will be the ighest ever. One scalper estimated a top-priced seat in Madison Square Gar- den will fetch The regular season ends Sunday night. The' quarter- finals begin in Philadelphia next Tuesday night. SHEDULE CHANGED The NHL disclosed Tuesday a change in the playoff schedule, moving up the Philadelphia opener by one day. The Flyers, West Division champions, play the fourth- place club, either Los Angeles or Atlanta, at Philadelphia for the first two games, with the second game scheduled Thurs- day night, April 11. The three other best-of- seven quarter-finals start Wednesday night, April 10, in Montreal, Boston and Chicago based on regular-season starting times. Their second games all are on April 11.- The Bruins, winners of the East Division title, play fourth-place Toronto; the second-place Canadians take on the third-place Rangers, and the second-place Black Hawks tackle either Los Angeles or Atlanta. The Flyers move to their op- ponent's ice Saturday and Sun- day, April 13 and 14, for the third and fourth games A fifth game, if necessary, will be played in Philadelphia April 16. Remaining games, if needed, will be on the opponent's ice April 18 and in Philadelphia April 20 or 21. Except for the earlier Flyer opening, the dates are the same the New York- Montreal, Toronto-Boston and Chicago-Los Angeles-or- Atlanta series. The Rangers and Maple Leafs have the highest-priced seats' for the playoffs, for choice seats that cost and respectively, during the regular season If it reaches the final, Los Angeles also will have a top price, double its regular-season tab.

"Frankly it's not the North- men in Toronto, as such) that I find Reed said. "I can see other teams following them into Canada, particularly a National Football League club in Montreal, and in that sense I agree with the government's action." Said Montreal Alouettes' owner Sam Berger: "The government is planning legislation and I'm sure it's going to come down, come what may in the way of new (WFL) signings." Meanwhile, Ottawa Rough Riders of the Eastern Football Conference were silent on an announcement in Tampa, Fla., that their all- star defensive tackle Rudy Sims said he will sign this week with the Philadelphia Bell of the WFL. Sims told the Tampa Tribune he will play out his 1974 option with the Riders. He said he would be making at least more, plus a sizeable bonus for signing. Meanwhile, Oakland Raider veteran quarterback Ken Stabler jumped to the WFL.

(AP) Miami Dolphins middle linebacker, Nick Buoniconti, says he is among National Football League players listening to contract 'proposals from the new World Football League Three of Buoniconti's teammates, Larry Csonka, Jim Klick and Paul Warfield, announced Sunday they will jump to the WFL after playing out their options this year. Buoniconti said Tuesday night he was talking to two WFL clubs and would be "foolish and a bad family man" if he didn't listen to their offers. "It's a player's market again, for the first time in a long Buoniconti said. WFL NOW FOR REAL "The signing of our three guys accomplished something big in one day it gave the WFL a whole lot of credibility I think the new league was lacking that before Sunday, but no more. "If the signings keep up like this, the WFL would have no trouble negotiating a good TV contract and that's all it needs to make he added. Buoniconti did not identify the franchise with which he is talking Buoniconti said the three Dolphins "have too much pride to give anything less than a 100 per cent effort even while playing out their options 1 "The only trouble might come in management's attitude toward them But .we'd have to wait and see on Uhat."
