Minneapolis Monday. High 24. Low 17." So runs a Ixtx on the front of the Dallas Times Herald sports page. Dallas Black Hawks of the Central Hockey League even invited the Cowboys over for a workout on the ice, It was politely refused. The Cowboys fear a situa- tion similar 'to 1967 against Green Bay Packers in the Na- tional Football League play- off. It was 17 below zero and dropping at kickoff. Dallas lost in the final seconds on a frozen field. "It was unbelievable that said Danny Reeves, a survivor, who now is player- coach. Numerous players got frost bite. HAMPERED OFFENCE But more important, the conditions hampered Dallas' high-powered offence. The Cowboys are leading the league in passing this year. The offence is like a closely-tuned racing ear which" functions best with a fast track. "Frozen hands and fingers don't do the passer and the receivers any good." said de- fensive tackle Boh Lilly. II o w ever, Reeves points out: "We played Green Bay a heck of a game that. day. They were slipping and slid- ing as much as we were.'1 Cowboy general manager Tex Schramm says: "Ac- tually the temperature had very" little to do with the eventual way the game turned cut. I'm sure we could have played better under warmer conditions but maybe the Parkers could too.'' Coach Tom Landry plans to make the trip north Friday. "If we have to work out in a snow bank we'll work out." Landry says. "Then we'll go out and play the game the next day." Baltimore defends integrity NEW YORK (AP) Balti- more Colts issued an official statement Tuesday defending their integrity and revealing that their upset defeat by New- England Patriots last Sunday cost many players and coaches bonuses promised if< the club had won the Eastern Division tills in the American Football Conference. Citing stories suggesting the Colts may have lost to the Pa- triots because they preferred to meet Cleveland Browns rather than Kansas City Chiefs in a first-round playoff game, gen- eral manager Don Klosterman issued a statemuit which said: "The idea that the world champions would give less than a full effort in order to gain a supposed advantage in playoff competition is repugnant to everyone associated with the Colts, a team widely known as one of character. "The world champions' loss was a serious one in that it cost them a possible home field ad- vantage in the AFC champion- ship game and the Colts never have lost a playoff or champ- ionship in Baltimore. "Coach Don McCaflerly summed up the feelings of the Colts when be said: T don't want to lose to anybody anytime.' Klosterman's statement said stories suggesting otherwise had permitted the "integrity of the Colts and of pro football in gen- eral to be questioned through in- nuendo and that they did a disservice to tho Pa- triots and belittled the Browns.
