Arrson confirmed a report trial he ill! purchase the stock Paul owns in the Cleve- fciirl club. More sport on page 14 SULLY SAYS -By Pat Siillii'iin OVERLOOKED in all tlie hullabaloo of the outcome of the Super Bowl game Sunday past, a gamble that almost paid off in spades. Think back to Ihe early part of the game. As a matter of fact. .Miami had just been held by the Washington Redskins on their first series and Larry Sieple was preparing to punt. The Dolphins were 'ourth and seventh at their own 12 or 13 yard line. On the impending snap from centre there appeared to be a fumble of unbelievable sorts. Even announcer Curt Gowdy. the dean of broad- casters, felt certain the centre had missed the ball in his attempt to get the ball back to Sieples. Now. I would be the first to admit that strange things happen in tiie wonderful world of sports. The unexpected is often the rule rather than the excep- tion. But not in this case. I was certain I had detected something that bordered on illegal procedure. On the instant replay, that in this case wasn't exactly instant, there it was. Redskins' No. 53. Harold McLinton. was down on one knee and he actually ticked the ball just as it was being snapped. Now. I was ready (o take Goudy's word lhat the centre, somehow, had missed the ball. But not after seeing the replay. But rather than knock McLinton. he should be commended. He came within a tick of possibly turn- ing the ball game around. I don't have to tell you that Miami won the game 14-7. You know, of course, turnovers had a great deal to do with the game. Miami made the best of them and now are counting their money and polish- ing their championship rings. It may have been a different had it not been for the sharp eyes of one official. The head linesman did not see the piay and after a short conference the call was illegal proced- ure. Washington was assessed a five-yard penalty and the Dolphins kicked out of danger. Picture, however, if the official had missed the call and it was ruled a fumble recovery by the Red- skins. does that do to the possible outcome of the U'e'll never know. I realize, but it is fun to think what have taken place. If Washington had scored first and made Miami play catch-up football knows? I shouldn't be telling you this as ii is not cricket when it comes to betting. But. I bet both ways on ihe Super Bowl. However, before you condemn me. let me explain. As you may remember, the one prediction I had right last year had me pick Hamilton Tiger-Cats to win the Grey Cup. Two of the less fortunate people who I took monev from had their choice in the Super Since turnabout is fair play, I had to give them first choice in the Super Bowi and they took Miami. .Vow. wanting to bet on Miami myself. I had to find some Washington money around, and did. And for those of you who would like to know why I wanted to bet on Miami I will quote from a much more authoritative source than yours truly. In a weekly sports paper it picked V.ashinglon by three jioinis because of its defence, and I quote "The Gcng has the defensive nod solidly over the No-Name defence, with far more experience in the line and among the secondary. Linebacking is the most even of the three "I" is hard ;n imagine the Do'p'nin :ve coping with size, speed and sawy of the Washington front tine. The Redskin backi'te'.d has su- perb unity and co-ordination and covers man-to-man better than any other group." here comes the clincher is on the of the Dolphins, but Super are decided by mistakes, something Washington doesn't know any- thing about." Enough said.
