Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE July Graham Kelly don't believe in With those and crossed rookie head coach George Brancato dismissed the apparent jinx on Grey Cup Champions operative since 1970. Brancato has the enviable job of piloting the CFL champion 9ttawa Rough Riders in the 1974 campaign. In another his job isn't so enviable considering that when you are No. One the only way you can go is and considering that George has to step in and fill the shoes of the popular and successful Jack Got- ta. Beginning in when the previous year's winners Ot- tawa finished dead last in the succeeding Grey Cup champions have gone from the penthouse to the outhouse. Montreal won in and finished last in 1971. In the Calgary Stampeders captured the Holy Grail of Canadian foot- only to miss the playoffs ever since. The Tiger-Cats from Steeltown took possession of Earl Grey's hardware in but finished last the following year. Last year Ottawa scored a convincing triumph over an injury-ridden Edmonton Eskimo team. The jinx is finally going to come to an end. Unless Ottawa is hit with a devastating series of injuries such as happened to Toronto in there should be no way that the entry from the Hill will miss the playoffs in 1974. In unless I miss my you should see Ottawa playing in the national final in Vancouver at the end of November. All isn't sweetness and however. Jack Gotta jumped to Birmingham of the WFL. Rudy Sims and Tom the guts of the Rough Rider defensive have defected to the Philadelphia also of the upstart WFL. Last year Ottawa made it to the Grey Cup on the basis of an awesome defense. Once it was that same defense that overwhelmed the Eskimos. Ottawa's defense won't be as strong this but any loss of defensive effectiveness will be more than compensated for by a more productive offense. Assistant coach Tom Dimitroff told me the other night in Edmonton that he wants Ottawa to become more offensively oriented. want to instill offensive pride in our ball Dimitroff said. don't want to be known strictly as a defen- sive ball club as in the past. Last year we were rated as a great defensive team with an offense that would produce enough field goals to The following Ottawa defeated Edmonton 26-25 on the basis of four Gerry Organ two of which were from 50 and 51 yards out. Regardless of the fact that Organ kicked all those three- it looks like Dimitroff's wish for a more productive offense will come true. Ottawa has tremendous competition go- ing for positions in the backfield. Their group of receivers are probably the best in the country. Their offensive line should be as good as any except Edmonton's. The kicking game is solid. The key to success of any is the quarter- backing. The coaching staff feels that Ottawa has the best quarterbacking setup in the league with Jerry late of and Saskatchewan reject Rick Cassata. Brancato and smallest coaches in the by the can't say enough about often regarded by observers as the weak link on the Grey Cup cham- pions. Says will be the best quarter- back in this year or next. He has an unbelievable throw- ing especially going deep. Usually people consider Ron Lancaster to be the best quarterback in the league. But Lan- caster is a very poor passer. He can't compare with.Cassata when it comes to throwing deep. All Rico needs is to learn to relax he gets so uptight before a game. Cassata's a tremen- dous The coaches also feel that Cassata needs more confidence in himself. is a tough town to play in. If you throw one lousy the fans are prepared to boo you out of the ball park. Rico has to learn to handle that a bit During the exhibition game against Cassata looked better than I have ever seen him. The game was a very well-played considering that 'the outcome was meaningless. Both teams obviously came to Edmonton seeking revenge for their Grey Cup loss and Ottawa wanting to extend their winning streak to 14 which they did. Cassata put it all together. On one late in the fourth quarter when Ottawa needed points to Cassata got away from a determined rush by Ed Molstad and Ron and completed a pass for a first down. Earlier in the Cassata employed the moves of a bull fighter to elude the Edmonton pass rush and complete a beautiful over the shoulder pass to Rhome Nixon for a touchdown. That kind of leading pass is the toughest throw for a quarterback to make. Cassata and at other looked just great. The other half of the signal-calling tandem is veteran Jerry Keeling.. like doesn't throw long very but like his Saskatchewan is devastating with the short and medium passes. Cassata throws with brute force. There is nothing subtle about his approach to the game. But with Keeling it is different. Jerry played the Eskimo defense like a violin. He continually exploited Edmonton's Achilles the left cornerback played by the aging Billy Cooper. By picking apart the weak Keeling moved Ottawa in and scored. A masterful performance. Ottawa is solid at quarterback but more so because of Keeling than Cassata. In the former Eskimo Gene Foster is battling with Art Green for the right to join Jim Jim Foley and Terry Wellesley. Right Green would seem to have the in- side track. Both Wellesley and Foley are a real plus for the coaches who can thus put more imports on defense. Ottawa is deep in receivers. With Rhome Tom Pullen and Hugh the champs have toughness and experience. According to former Ottawa great Bobby those guys are good ones. Pullen has real soft never fights the ball. Nixon is a great one but he tends to get a little lazy on some of his pass Sure the next Nixon dogged it a and arrived at the ball a second too late. On Ottawa is solid at linebacking with Gerry Mark Kosmos and Wayne Giardino. Wayne Al Dick Adams and Mike Law go with Ron Woodward to form the best defensive backfield in Canada. Some observers feel that Woodward is the number one safety in the game. The front four will be weaker without Sims and but before shedding those remember they still have Wayne Smith at 230 Jim 245 Charlie and likely rookie Carl 260. A lot of beef. experienced. Watch Softball Rittway Flames came back from a 2-0 deficit after one in- ning of play and went on to whip the Labor Club Larks 19- 9 in a City Women's Softball League game staged Monday night.

Legionettes Ruth Miller went the dis- tance to pick up the mound decision while Joyce Kucheran was handed the loss. Miller aided her own cause belting a pair of doubles while Linda Dogterom chipped in with a two-bagger and a single. Janet Hay and Fran Kasokoft managed a double and single each in a losing Wins title Erma Bikman of Lethbridge captured the 1974 Henderson Lake Ladies' Invitational Golf Tournament staged at the local course Tuesday.

The club is training Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. at the Civic Centre. To be players must be under the age of 21 as of August 24. Dark said he wanted his own coaches and had been given permission to make the change by owner Charles Finley. the bullpen and the third base were holdovers from the staff of Dick who led the A's to their second World Series victory in a row last fall and then quit. Dark said he was replacing the two with Bobby recently replaced by Williams as manager of California An- and Bobby who has been manager of Oakland's farm team at Idaho. It was not immediately clear what assignments Winkles and Hoffman would receive. There was speculation that Noren would join Williams at Anaheim. Noren had a clash with Dark earlier in the season when the Oakland manager accused him of giv- ing the wrong signals. Hoscheit responded to his firing by promised we would all get raises. We didn't get raises. His word isn't worth a damn.
