Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE UTHBRIDGI HERALD 1973 Graham Kelly When the CFL was drawing to a close weeks ago or things looked pretty grim for the Calgary etampeden. They were going with two rookie line- two new and an untalented backfield. General Manager Rogers Lehew put out the call for help. The call for help has been and the Stampeders are now able to contemplate their fu- ture with a greater degree of optimism. Other things have helped. Steve brown and Rojar Go- the rookie linebackers the Cowboys have had and will have their problems. They have shown no running attack whatsoever. With Silas McKinnie the Cowboys brought in Dick We- solowski and Henry Copeland from Hamilton. Neither really impressed. Of it is ex- ceptionally difficult to oper- ate an efficient ground attack when you don't know from one game to the next who will show up to piay there at game time. the Calgary Stampeders have taken a gi- gantic step to remedy their running problems by acquir- ing Leon McQuay from the Toronto Argonauts in ex- change for offensive guard Granville Liggins.

Tliis is no small ac- complishment in the words of Calgary defensive coach Dick nothing simple about defense. Li defense today in pro football is as complicated as offense. There are countless things a guy has to learn. We're real pleased with the way our defensive ball club has played this So far the Stamps have been competitive on the basts of their fine defensive showing. Particularly outstanding have been Fred James and Larry Robinson. Alouette Justin Canale will likely take over at the guard spot. Regardless of the impres- siveshctwing quarterback Jim Lindsay the other Coach Jim Duncan is depend- ing on Peter Liske to team up with McQuay and lead the foothills club to a playoff spot. Lindsay is too inconsis- tent. If he were to start the rest of his team's games he would lead them straight into Conference cel- lar. Liske is an respected who given time to adjust to his new-old will be impres- sive. His main objective is to win football games Peter came to play.

But nothing is more impor- tant to Mr. Liske right now than leading his cohorts to the annual fall classic on November 25. out a set Lisfce has been at a great disadvan- tage. T h e Penn State graduate rates football intelligence as the No. l attribute of a good quarterback. You really have to study the game. Football is tremendously compli- cated. The people in the stands have no idea of how much is involved. So naturally you have to be intelligent at least as far as football is con- Liske disputes the theory that all professional quarterbacks are relatively equal in skills of the posi- tion. not true at all. This attitude is thought to be what turns off players like Puance Thomat in the and Leon Mc- Quay here. I wonder if it is any coincidence that the play- ers getting into difficulty hap- pen to be negroes. When I talk to white players and coaches they state that there is no racism in the CFL. The negro players say there Is. Perfiaps they are more mili- tant and more sensitive to what they consider their rights as an individual to thus running afoul of coacfles and teammates. Peter Lisfce doesn't pretent to know wTfy certain ballplayers such as Leon McQuay had difficulty on a football team but he made an interesting T don't think that a lot these troubles are really related to pelting along with team- mates.
