NEW YORK (NBA) "Tb? public gets little protec- tion from the millions of dol- lars that they spend on sports said John L. Bren- nan, president of tbe Harness Tracks Security, Inc., a secu- rity and investigative organi- zation for 34 of the nation's harness tracks. Brennan believes that the integrity of sports is more vulnerable than sports mag' nates want to admit. Gamb- lers, he contends, are a con- stant menace to professional athletes, and tbe major sports are not doing all they can to insure that the public gets a totally honest game for its dollar. Brennan, a former adminis- trative assistant to J. Edgar Hoover at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has a propos- Sports Bureau of Investigation It would be a pooling of the resources of all the major sports and this SBI would be under the dirction of a "czar" who would be above suspicion. "A person of the stature of, say, Whizzer said Brennan, referring to Su- preme Court Justice Byron White, a onet-ime pro football halfback. Brennan believes that gam- blers are the bane of sports. And gamblers are pervasive in their sports interests. Bren- nan says that the gambler who bets on horse races, will also bet on football, baseball, basketball and hockey games. He recalls, for example, that Skyball ScabelU, the man who- ingratiated himself to Bob Cousy several years al to promote greater securi- agO> (this was eventually re- ly. What he advocates is vealed in a national magazine story) was one of the East Coast's biggest bookmakers. Basketball was only one of his many athletic interests.' Brennan recalled that as far back as the Black Sox scandal in 1919, the man be- hind the scheme, Arnold Rothstein, was also the owner of race horses. "I don't want to be critical of the other said Brennan, "but a Pete Rozelle and a Bowie Kuhn try to downplay the reality that gambling is even a problem to them. They are burying their heads in the sand on this is- sue." Brennan estimates that baseball gambling represents 50 per cent more money than horse race betting and foot- ball betting is one third greater than horse racing. Basketball, says Brennan, is nearly equal in betting to horse racing. Brennan admits, of course, that harness racing has had its share and more of gam- bling problems. He also ad- mits that one reason his idea may never be implemented is that the other sports -'may not want to get in bed with horse racing." "But we should forget the jealousies and deal with the he says. The realities include the suppressing of touchy infor- mation by public relations people in the various sports. "This drug scandal that is brewing in the National Foot- ball said Brennan, "has been known about for thres years." Only recently, he says, have the other major sports begun to fill out their security forces. Yet the major sports only have a couple of full-time investigators each, and some have retainers in various cit- ies. "I don't think that's said Brennan. "I think that we should be on top of wrong-doing and the gamblers and be ready to breaks into a major scan- dal." He has been trying to im- plement changes in his own sport. He has pushed, for ex- ample, to bar for life men who have been convicted of throwing races, to some in- stances, he says, "renegade" tracks accept wrong-doers. The Sports Bureau of Inves- tigation has been an idea of Brennan's for several years, he says. He began thinking of it when he saw how Robert Kennedy, when he was U.S. Attorney General, polled lo- cal, state and federal law en- forcement agencies for the first time. "When you got the FBI, the Treasury Department, the case, you'vs got sometl he said. "The use of this kind of regional task force was one of the main reasons Kennedy was so effective in getting racketeers sent to prison. He pooled all the available infor- mation and had all groups working gather." Brennan does not believe an SBI would be very expensive. The funding would come from the major sports and, he says, would not cost more than million a year to keep up. "And that figure is peanuts compared to the money these sports spend on he said. "Most important is that the SBI would be independent, un- like the league offices of the major sports today. They have to answer to the owners. SBI would have to answer only to the public."
