Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, August 28, 1974 Howe will wear sweater No. 9 EDMONTON (CP) No 9 is the best-known sweater number in hockey after being identified for years with Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull. The problem of which one will wear that number now that they're on the same team has been resolved by Team Canada '74 as it prepares for the series with Russia When the Team Canada equipment was unpacked Tuesday for training camp at the Edmonton Gardens it was revealed that Hull will wear sweater No. 16 for the Russian series Hull, who has worn No 9 for Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association and before that for Chicago Black Hawks" of the National Hockey League, made the decision easier when he said that Howe should keep No 9. Howe carried No. 9 with him to Houston Aeros of the WHA from Detroit Red Wings of the NHL Why No. 16'' "Bobby said that was the first number he wore away back in peewee said team manager Bill Hunter Ice in the gardens is to be ready for skating Wednesday Training camp doesn't officially open until Sunday but the Team Canada players, drawn from WHA rosters, will begin arriving, drawing equipment and work- ing out informally in the next few days. Hunter says he expects 80 per cent of the players will be working out at the Gardens by Friday Coach Billy Harris and players drawn from his Toronto Toros are scheduled to arrive Thursday. Hull is due Friday. He is bringing Swedish defenceman Lars Erik Sjoberg, voted the outstanding defenceman in the last world tournament, who has signed with the Jets. He will work out with Team Canada, tutor- ing the defence on European tactics. Team Canada will practise twice daily with afternoon workouts open to the public. Cooling-off period goes into overtime CHICAGO (AP) In foot- ball terms, the coolmg-off period moved into overtime today, the latest proposal by the owners to end the National Football League Players Association (NFLPAi strike was tackled hard at the line of scrimmage, and there is a time out in the negotiations By a 25-to-l vote Tuesday night, the NFLPA strongly re- jected the owners' newest offer, but the players will re- main in their training camps ab the 14-day cooling off period has been indefinitely e.xtended gambled the 14-day pe- riod would work It Ed Garvey, executive director of the players union, told a Winners declared in six classes The Lethbndge Sports Car Club held a successful Auto Slalom Sunday, declaring winners in six classes. Tom Gargett was the Class 2 winner while Ron Watson topped the Class 3 event. Den- nis Atkinson was tops in Class 5 competition.

Neither Garvey nor Curry, who announced the near- unanimous rejection, said which representative from the 26 NFL teams cast the dis- senting vote. "The negotiations have been called off and when the owners come up with a sub- stantial offer, we'll go Garvey said. "We intend to re- main flexible and we'll play it by ear. "No, they didn't break the union. We feel it is stronger than ever We took a gamble going back to camp and it didn't work." W.J.

John Thompson, who heads management negotiators, said the crux of the 59-day labor dispute, the most prolonged labor conflict in the history of major professional sports, still was the rule under which NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle can compensate a club for a player who plays out his option and signs with another team. Lions bounce Eskimos 21-15 in surprise That's Moorhead, unpredictable EDMONTON (CP) Two players under pressure from home fans Tuesday night sparked British Columbia Lions to a 21-15 victory over Edmonton Eskimos in a Western Football Conference game before 22.477 fans. The crowd, largest of the season here, watched quarter- back Don Moorhead pick apart the Eskimo defence with 11 completions in 15 attempts for 126 yards while Ivan MacMillan kicked a pair of second-quarter field goals that put the Lions ahead to stay. Both had been criticized by Vancouver fans for their in- consistent play. The victory, marred by a serious injury to veteran B.C. receiver Jim Young, left the Lions tied with the idle Sas- katchewan Roughriders for first place while Edmonton dropped to third. Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Calgary Stampeders, tied for fourth place in the WFC, play tonight at Winnipeg. Young left the game on the second-last play of the third quarter with a dislocated shoulder. Before leaving, Young caught a 36-yard pass, Moorhead's longest of the night, for a touchdown. Moorhead used short passes most of the way and em- ployed backs Monroe Eley and Lou Harris to perfection in a balanced attack. Harris slashed across from In the drink There was an unscheduled cooling-off for two competitors in the metre steeplechase Tuesday at Winnipeg. Giants' surgeon not wrong., bet seven times, lost six ASBURY PARK, N J. (AP) The former New York Giants' surgeon named in a gambling scandal last week says he did nothing wrong by giving information to bettors about the players' health nor by wagering himself, The Asbury Park Press reports The report was based on the first inter- view given by Dr. Anthony Pisani since two reputed bookmakers were indicted last Tuesday for allegedly conferring with Pisani to obtain medical information about the players, The Press says. Pisani, who lives in nearby Rumson, resigned last month after 12 years with the National Football League team. The 40-count indictment, returned by a New York grand jury, charged Thomas Musto and Michael Astanta with con- spiracy in the alleged gambling scheme. They "agreed to confer on a regular basis" with Pisani about the "ex- tent and exact nature of injuries" to several Giants players, the indictment said Pisani was not named as a defendant. Pisani told The Press the information he gave to gamblers was available to them through newspapers. If Pisani had any inside information, it apparently did not improve his own betting chances "I bet on the Giants eight times last year I lost seven he said. Pisani said he was often asked about the Giants health "When I pick up my morning new- spaper, the news dealer asks me. When I get to the hospital, the elevator operator asks me. The nurses ask me. Maybe the nurses are betting on the games; I don't know. I must get asked 80 times a he said. He said he saw nothing wrong in providing personally the same information he provided the NFL office "I am the same man I have been for 62 years, only some people don't believe it said Pisani. The doctor said rumors that he provided the information to repay staggering debts were "sheer nonsense." __ Pisani, chief orthopedic surgeon at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York, is reported to have said he retired from the Giants for economic and medical reasons He said he suffers from phlebitis in both legs and had "slowed up a little bit" in running onto the field to examine injured players. Pisani is also reported to have said in- surance premiums for malpractice coverage cost him this year. He said a third of the premiums represented a surcharge he paid because so many of his patients were high-salaried athletes who presumably would get top awards from juries if something went wrong in surgery, The Press says. But Pisani said his practice has increas- ed since the scandal aroused countrywide publicity. He said he received calls from as far away as New Hampshire from per- sons wanting him to perform knee sur- gery. I PONT
