The CFL commissioner said again Tuesday night, as he lias I done many times before, that lie is opposed lo a bid from million- aire Robert Schmertz to have a CFL team based in New York's Yankee Stadium. "But I'm just an employee of the Gaudaur told re- porters. not sure my views will count for anything." Gaudaur, along with the own- ers and general managers o f the nine CFL teams, are in Montreal for the league's an- nual meeting. The general managers spent i Tuesday picking off 70 players in nine rounds of this year's draft of Canadian college play- ers. They'll meet today to out- line routine recommendations on scheduling and import quo- tas, but the big day is Thursday when the CFL executive is ex- pected to decide on expansion, Grey Cup sites, imports and proposals from the CFL Players Association. Reporters caught up with Gaudaur after the college draft Tuesday and he wasted no time tearing apart ihe New York franchise bid. He started out by saying he had simply collected the pros and cons of the bid for the own- ers to consider at the meeting. He added that "you just couldn't find a more desirable group than the Schmertz peo- ple." Then he said: "I'm sure Schmertz is smart enough to know what it takes to draw in New York. It lakes something like Joe Namatb. "He's got money enough to go out and hire 10 Joe Namalhs. And I'm sure that's just what he'd do, "Now I ask you, how is Re- gina going to compete with thai? "And if New York is a suc- cess how do you deny Chicago? Or Detroit? Or Tampa? I've talked to groups from all these cities and they are all substan- gmmc ick?

"Some day (here wouldn't be much of Canada left in the CFL."

A serious split could result over expansion into the U.S. One or two teams could pack up and leave the CFL in favor of joining a new U.S. major league. "I've told the general manag- ers the tin-cat of a new league is a very real Gau- daur said. "And I've also lold them there is the possibility the new league would threaten our territory." The commissioner e m p h a- sized that no final decision on the New York bid had been made.

Drop Red Wings into fifth place Leafs5 perseverance pays By THE CANADIAN PRESS Toronto Maple Leafs have been having their problems in the National Hockey League but at least they keep trying and their perseverance has been paying off. The Leafs were up to their usual standard of marksman- ship in St. Louis Tuesday night, bouncing pucks off the Blues goalposts while falling behind 1-0. But, not unlike their perform- ance in New York Sunday when they came back to tie the Rangers 2-2, the Leafs kept plugging and wound up with a 2-1 win on goal? by Rick Kehoe and Paul Henderson late in the third period. In the only other game Tues- day, Philadelphia Flyers downed Vancouver Canucks 3-1 to move to within one point oi the fourth-place Blues in the West Division. The Leafs' victory edgec them back into fourth spot in the East, one point ahead of ihe idle Detroit Red Wings. Toronto could increase the margin to- night when they play host to Pittsburgh Penguins. The Red Wings remain idle until Thurs- day. In other games tonight, Chi- cago Black Hawks visit New York, Philadelphia meets the Golden Seals in Oakland and Los Angeles Kings visit Minne- sota North Stars. Centre Danny O'Shea had just arrived in St. Louis after a Tuesday trade saw the Blues claim him from Chicago in ex- change for Chris Bordeleau. O'Shea set out immediately to please his new employers by scoring for the Blues in the sec- ond period and he was one of Ihe outstanding players in Blues uniform as he toiled on a line between wingers Phil Rob- erto and Brian Lavender. St. Louis goalie Jacques Caron played a strong game in the first two periods although the goalposts helped him on shots by Leaf centres Dave Keon, Norm Ullman and Jim Harrison.
