PHONI The LetKbtidge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, January 9, 1974 Ugmii It MMM (4tt) m-7411 FILING CABINETS Shula feels advantage has gone to Vikings Grant says threatened with fine Minnesota Viking head coach Bud Grant tells newsmen gathered at the Vikings' headquarters in Houston Tex., that he has been threatened with a fine from National Football League president Pete Rozelle for his remarks concerning training facilities for the Viking. Canucks awarded protest, Joevenazzo top playmaker CALGARY Presi- dent Jim Secular announced Tuesday that a protest by Calgary Canucks against the 'Pass Red Devils concerning an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Dec. 27 has been upheld. Scoular said the Canucks were correct in their conten- tion that three Red Devils who played in the game, won by the 'Pass 5-3, were ineligible. The two points were taken from the 'Pass and given to Calgary.' Denny McLean, Terry Tar- now and Larry Lestander had not been registered by the league deadline of Dec. 24. The players were registered Dec. 29, three days after the protested game. The result leaves the 'Pass and Calgary tied in third place, one point behind the second-placed Edmonton Mets and seven points behind the league-leading Red Deer Rustlers. Meanwhile Roger Mitchell of Drumheller Falcons has taken a three-point lead in the league scoring race with 62 points on 27 goals and 35 assists. League statistics released Tuesday showed Red Deer Rustlers' Terry Wittchen, who has combined 28 goals and 31 assists for 59 points, was in se- CFL will retain field goal value SAN FRANCISCO (CP) The field goal, much maligned in some quarters, will retain its status quo, the rules com- mittee of the Canadian Foot- ball League decided Tuesday. There was considerable dis- cussion about lowering the value of the field goal to two points and to giving the oppo- nent the ball at the line of scrimmage When a field goal is unsuccessful, but both proposals were rejected. A motion to adopt a two- point conversion of a touchdown also was defeated at the meeting. Rule changes adopted by the committee, which now will go before the league executive committee for ratification at its meeting next month, included. change of possession- all begins with the snap of the ball.

Grant tells of possible fining HOUSTON (AP) The Super Bowl football battle still is four days away, but the National Football League already has a nice little scuf- fle in full and the main combatants don't even wear uniforms. On one side is Bud Grant, coach of Minnesota Vikings, the National Conference's entry in the main bout Sunday. On the other side stands Pete Rozelle, league com- missioner and probably the most powerful head of a ma- jor pro sport since Kenesaw Mountain Landis ruled baseball from 1921-1945. In the middle in Delmar Sta- dium, Houston's high school football field and facilities where the Vikings are pre- paring for Sunday's game against Miami Dolphins, the American Conference Cham- pion and defender of the Super Bowl crown. Rozelle and the rest of the NFL heirarchy say Delmar is more than adequate for the Vikings' needs. Grant doesn't. Monday, Grant called the facilities "shabby" and un- worthy of a "junior high school team." Rozelle didn't take too kind- ly to that. At least, that's what Grant presumed on Tuesday when he surprised a news con- ference with the fact that he'd been reprimanded for his comments and advised that more of the same might result in a fine. "The commissioner took a dim view of my obser- Grant said. Did Rozelle's res-pmse sug- gest that further comments should be tempered? "I took it as a Grant replied. League bylaws prohibit a coach or player from criticiz- ing another team or the league. Jim Kensil, Rozelle's chief aide, said Grant's com- ments conflicted with the NFL constitition. "We were disappointed to hear about it publicly, not from the said Kensil. "The first thing we consider is the field, the se- cond the training room and the third the dressing room." Grant was satisfied with the field, but called the rest of the accommodations poor, noting there were no lockers and only one coaches' table. And its location didn't help matters. "We have to bus 20 minutes to and from the field while the Dolphins using the Houston Oilers' facilities can hold a squad meeting in their hotel and walk across the street to practice. It gives Miami an advantage." Don Shula, who is taking his Dolphins into their third straight Super Bowl, said "I think this has given the Vikings a competitive edge. "They're angry. We're in trouble unless we can get the league to do something to get us teed off, too." Meanwhile, the teams continued practising. For the Dolphins, this meant loosening up and "getting our thoughts back on the Shula said. "We got ready for our first Super Bowl too he said, referring to Miami's loss to Dallas. "Last year (when the Dolphins beat Washington) we changed and finalized in the last week. We're following that same schedule." Shula said that, as of now, every member of the Dolphins will be available Sunday ex- cept for reserve running back and kick-return specialist Charlie Leigh, who separated a shoulder in the AFC cham- pionship game against Oakland. Mr. Big Business now called something else Tom Prothro Prothro lands job SAN DIEGO (AP) Tommy Prothro, fired after two years in his first National Football League Job, was named Tuesday as head coach of San Diego Chargers. Prothro, S3, signed a multi- year contract as the Chargers' fourth coach in three years. The salary wasn't disclosed but was estimated in the 000 range. ProthFo .succeeds Ron Waller, who took over on an interim basis in mid-season when Harland Svare stepped out coach and became general manager. NEW YORK (CP) Once he was Mr. Big Business to Canadians. Today, E. P. Taylor is Mr. Racing of North America. The Thoroughbred Racing Association in recognition of Taylor's nearly four decades in the sport, has voted him as horse racing's Man of the Year for 1973. Taylor, who will be 73 Jan. 29, will be honored at the an- nual Eclipse Awards dinner Jan. 11 at Bal Harbour, Fla. Although nominally man of the year, Taylor will be cited for his contributions to thor- oughbred racing since 1936, when he purchased his first thoroughbred. His national stud farm near Oshawa, Ont, led North America as the top race- winning breeder for 10 consecutive years, 1960-70. It bred the winner of the Queen's Plate IS times and it also bred Canada's horse of the year nine times. His homebred Northern Dancer, racing under the'' colors of Windfields Farm, won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in 1964, and remains the only Canadian- bred ever acclaimed horse of the year in the United States. The industrialist started his fortune selling beer. He built a brewing empire during the great depression in the 1930s and became the best-known industrialist in Canada. His fortune spread to other in- dustries. In 1971, he relinquished chairmanship of the giant Argus Corp. Ltd., an invest- ment trust which extended to all areas of Canadian business. Another Taylor.bred horse, Nijinsky, dominated Euro- pean racing in 1970, winning 11 of 12 races including the Derby at Epsom Downs. Then Nijinsky was sold to a syn- dicate and retired to stud.

Brian Sutler, also of Red Deer, was in third spot with 53 points on 26 goals and 27 assists. A pair of rookies, Jerry Bancks of Calgary Canucks and Randy Joevenazzo of Lethbridge Longhorns, are next with 51 points each. Bancks has 28 goals, which ties him with Wittchen for the lead in that department, and Joevanazzo's 37 assists is tops among the play makers. Ron Bourcier of Red Deer continued to lead in goalten- ding, although his goals against average climbed to 3.03. Mike Haworth of Calgary Canucks was the most penaliz- ed player with 162 minutes and the Edmonton Mets lead in team penalties with minutes.
