Tim Ryan, "have raised hell about Chiefs playoff game on Christmas Day than I've ever heard before. I've heard a lot of comments like, 'If I go my wife will divorce me' " In New York, Jim Kensil, executive director of the NFL and Rozelle's chief aide, acknowledged that the league also had received complaints. 'DIDN'T WANT TO PLAY' "We didn't want to play on Christmas any more than anybody wanted us to." Kensil said. "We didn't feel we had anv alternative."

Kensil said. "Obviously television is involved, but we also have a commitment to our fans and we feel we have to keep it. If we played all four games Sunday, people could see only two of them and they expect to see four. "We're also . . . committed to deliver one game each day from each conference for television." alties while the teams spljt two majors.

Lethbridge skaters dominate Former inmate hasn't forgotten CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) -The inmates call him "part of the family," and when Denver boxer Ron Lyle moved his training camp here for two days this week, 250 convicts crowded into the tiny prison gym to watch him spar. 'It's kind of a lift when he comes down," said John Mulle-nix, a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate for close to a decade. "To some of the guys he's a real inspiration." Minor hockey Darryl Mock scored two big goals and guided the Jets to a slim 5-4 victory over the Maple Leafs in Bantam "A" action Thursday night. The Jets, who trailed 3-2 after two periods of play, got solo markers from Morgan Monroe, Jerry Bringham and Gary Dogtrom. Dan Reidlhuber, Murray Os-ter, Roli Melvin and Dave Toth tallied for the Leafs. In Midget action, A.C.T. cruised to an easy 8-0 victory over the Stampeders last night.

Lyle spent 1% years here for second - degree murder before being paroled in 1969 and launching his heavyweight career last spring. He returns almost monthly, a rare exception to prison rules against visits by former inmates, said Lt. Cliff Mattax, the athletic director. So far Lyle has won all 10 of his professional fights, eight of them by knockouts. His training sessions here this week were to prepare for a 10-round bout with Bill Drover of Wabush, Nfld., in Denver Saturday night. "It was a long time," Lyle said of his own confinement, "and you become a p a r t of those guys. Every time I get a chance I go down there." HELPS MEN ADJUST Some of the prisoners, like Mullenix, knew Lyle while he was serving time. They say the changes thev saw in him, and the fact he keeps coming back, have helped a good number of inmates adjust. For D. C. Barker, who is serving 10-15 years for robbery and joy - riding in a stolen car, the 29 - year - old Lyle has set an example he's determined to follow. "He made it out of here, and he's making it to the top in boxing. I'm going to rpake it, too," said the 21-year-old Barker, an aspiring amateur light heavyweieht who went two rounds with Lyle in the sparring sessions. "I wouldn't say he's an inspiration to everyone here. There are some guys that, nollrin's going to touch, but you've got to admire him," added Barker, who hopes to be paroled next year and is planning to try for a pro boxing career. "I don't come here to oreach to them," says Lyle. "I don't tell them what' they should do and they don't tell me. We just talk about what's going on in the free world and about girls. We just try to enjoy each other's company." Next comes the Alberta championships.
