Laperriere, 32 and a regular member of the Canadiens since 1963, said Friday th<îre is “no way” he could stay with the team next season if relations between the two do not improve. The latest episode apparently resulted from a reported tongue-lashing Bowman gave Laperriere after the first period of Wednesday’s 8-4 loss to the Blues in St. Louis. It marked the Canadiens second bitter loss on the road in one week. The previous Wednesday they had been set back on their heels 9-2 in Toronto by the Maple Leafs, Bowman is reported to have told Laperriere in St, Louis that "you’re finished, hang up your skates — don't ruin your life and don’t try to ruin mine.” Published reports Friday of the disagreement said Laperriere had told reporters that either he or Bowman had to go and that he wanted to be traded. But Laperriere denied that statement, “I didn’t say that I wanted to be traded or wanted him to lose his job," said Laperriere. “I Just said If things don’t get better, it’s no use for ipe to stay. I won’t play good and I might bother him,” The lanky defenceman said the coach had made a disparaging remark about him to a teanrimate during Thursday’s woTkOflt — a practice that saw the defence corps subjected to additional shooting drills after the regular practice ended. “It wasn’t nice,” Laperriere said of Bowman’s alleged remark. “And when that guy told me, that’s when I sounded off. "Don’t think I want to leave ... but if we hate each other it’s no use.” The Laperriere - Bo\vman feud apparently dates back to Nov. 19, 1973, when the Canadiens were beaten 6-4 by Detroit Red Wings, Bowman is reported to have told the defenceman at that time: "You can’t sicate any more." Meanwhile, Bowman took a low-key approach to the problem. "I think Laperriere's record speaks for itself as does mine,” he said. "It’s pretty hard to keep them all happy at the same time.” Bowman said that whatever is said by a coach to his players in the dressing room “stays in the dressing room.” He said that in today’s era athletes are more outspoken than in the past. "We don’t like it, but what can we do about it? DON KIRKHAM INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD. "V ' OOUG BOŸER Sales Repräsentative Continues to Serve Southern Alberta Fire-Auto-Personal-Commercial 308 • 9th St. S. Phon# 328-1229 Pronghorns suffer setback done in each of the previous seven Super Bowls. A specially imported water-removing machine will be ready should rain dampen the NFL final at Rice Stadium. Officials hope the machine, brought in from St. Louis, isn’t needed. "It’s never rained during a Super Bowl game,” said Augie Erfurth, Rice’s athletic business manager. “If we have a nice sunny day, we might get the Super Bowl again.” Houston becomes the fourth city to hold the Super Bowl extravaganza, and it has proven no small financial windfall. NFL officials have figured that the championship game means an infusion of to 10 million into a city’s economy. Previous Super Bowls were at Los Angeles, Miami and New Orleans. Rice Stadium, 25-year-old former home of Houston Oilers, has been spruced up after an inspection several months ago the NFL. The stadium, built in 1950, will be the smallest ever to be the site of a Super Bowl, but the NFL found most of the facilities to its liking. However, the dressing rooms are too small and arrangements are being made to accommodate post-game interviews by the press, “It's obvious the dressing rooms haven’t been changed since the stadium was built,” an NFL official said. “But then times have changed in the last 25 years.” The stadium press box was highly rated by the NFL, but it will fall far short of seating the estimated 950 press representatives expected to cover the game. The press box, which has three levels, will be jammed with 350 reporters. The other members of the press will be seated in the stands with a lap board to work from. The participating teams received 12,000 tickets and the Oilers got 18,000 to be divided among their 32,000 season ticket holders, The rest of the tickets were alloted to the remaining 23 NFL teams. Even the official Super Bowl party Friday night will be a major production. The NFL rented the Astrodome — considered too small for the game itself — for the party.
