Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i wwiy Travelling to Europe for Book early Book now with ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 Graham Kelly Tonight the Ottawa Rough Riders are guests of the Calgary Stampeders in the first exhibition game for either club of the 1974 season. For awhile it seemed that many familiar names would not be in the lineup due to the strike by the Canadian Football League Players' Association. an agreement has been reached that pleased the players but cast a spell of gloom over management throughout the league. In this day and the fan is used to hearing astronomical figures in respect to salaries for men who play a game. Hockey in particular has taken the rubber band off the bankroll and spread the coin of the realm or the republic lavishly in all direc- tions. In Medicine followers of the junior Tigers outdid themselves in speculating about the salaries of Tom Lysiak of Atlanta and Lanny MacDonald of Toronto. A scout for the Atlanta Flames told me that Tommy was getting about for three years. Not bad for a fuzzy cheeked lad from the Gas City Now with a Major Junior franchise in fans of this fair city will have a first hand opportunity to see a few stars and many average hockey players receive salaries that should start them on their way to easy street. Some of the salaries paid professional athletes make one think that they are the over pampered darlings of North American society. Some are but most who toil in the employ of the CFL are not. The players settled for a minimum salary of considerable below that in other sports. The players will get for winning the Grey Cup. Last each member of the winning rink in the Grey Cup bonspiel received more than that. For years CFL players have settled for less because of reasons like he is lucky to have a chance to he has a good off season he is a etc. Those who are reported to receive high salaries usually don't get anywhere near what one would think. Johnny Rodgers getting a Forget would be more like it. The fact is. CFL players are the poor country cousins of professional sport. money isn't the only bone of contention between management and player. A football player is a commodity in a cynical flesh market. When those knees begin to there is no sentiment the player is released. Often the reason the knee does go is because of one too many shots of novocaine. or a player throwing caution to the wind while using Often coaches will embarrass and humiliate a player who is in- thus getting him to perform when he should be home in bed. The late Vince Lombardi was notorious for making an in- jured ballplayer feel that he was letting his team down. But surely when a man can no longer do the it is necessary to push sentiment aside. No question about that. But it is the manner in which it is done. A good case in point might very well be Calgary veteran Larry Robinson. Robbie is the club's all time scoring leader. He put Calgary into a Grey Cup game in 1970 by kicking a crucial field goal in a blizzard. He has performed yeoman service in the defensive backfield. Yet his job is obviously in because in the opinion of his he is slowing up. Head coach Jim Wood of Calgary was quoted as know a guy like Robbie is going to have to play better foot- ball back there. Play on top of the ground instead of underneath it. he fell down more than he stood up last A class ballplayer who has contributed what Larry Robinson has to foot- ball sure doesn't deserve that kind of public comment. If he can't do the cut him let him retire But Robinson deserves the right to go out gracefully and with instead of with the disparaging remarks of a rookie coach ringing in his ears. The control of management over ballplayers is akin to the 19th Century attitudes generally found in the front offices of the CFL. If a player wants to his own off the he is often censured by pretty brutal methods. Mel the best tight end in the CFL in couldn't win a spot on the Toronto team he had captained to a berth in the Grey Cup final. Over the years he had run ins with coach Leo Cahill about long and opinions. For the Argo the straw that broke the camel's back came when Profit criticized the City of Toronto for putting artificial .turf in CNE Stadium. Profit maintained the money could be spent on more pressing social problems in Toronto-. Soon after he was released. The management claims that Profit's opinions had nothing to do with it. Profit and other players are convinced they did. Who's I would tend to side with the player. Canadian players say they don't get the kind of money paid GM's say they do. White management says there is no racism in the CFL. Negro players claim there although not necessarily in the rront office. The CFL Player's Association says that an indepen- dent audit indicates the clubs can meet-their demands. Manage- ment said they couldn't. Over the years I have run across many situations that in- dicate that truth is on the players' at least some of the time. Take racism for example. In I attended a press conference of the Toronto Argos in Regina. We were informally discussing a series of Sports Illustrated articles on Racism in Sport. I asked a Toronto coach what the situation was like in Canada. His We don't have any trouble with our niggers There are other examples as but I want to save those for a future column devoted solely to racism in the CFL. Grand slam was enough CALGARY Playing manager Marty Coil smash- ed a grand slam in the ninth inning Tuesday night to give Red Deer Generals a 5-3 Alberta Major Baseball League victory over Calgary Giants. Coil's blast snapped a 1-1 tie. The Giants came back in the bottom of the ninth with two runs and had runners on first and third with two out. But Red Deer relief pitcher Bob Bridges picked Paul Gallivan off third for the final out. The winning pitcher was Ken who pitched the first eight innings.

I would have to move to or Montreal and really concentrate on training until Indecision there may be on Phil Illingworth's part about trying for a posi- tion on Canada's 1976 Olympic Judo Team. But there can be no doubt that he still possesses the talent that earned him a spot on the squad that went to Munich in 1972. Phil proved that when he came second in the open event of the 13th Annual Canadian Judo Championships staged in Regina on June 22. The second-place showing took some of the sting out of an early elimination in his own middleweight event. Which brings up the obvious question. How can one lose out in the middleweight and then take se- cond in an event which is open to the top judokas in including the lost the middleweight on a Phil explains. The refs said I stepped out of look very dimly on that sort of he adds. may be putting it mildly. In an out-of-bounds violation costs you half a point. Your opponent needs only one point to take the match. In the open Phil went undefeated to win his side of the draw before losing out in the championship final to Rainier Fischer of Ontario.
