Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta BV I'M LCCKIN' FORWARD TO, THAT TRIP THIS J WtWA TIME WE W> UV3T VfAR -THEM LONDON BlW5.'AN'S3ME 0' THEYt IT TOOK MS A MONTH TO SET OVER IT.' I IT TOO GSUE'SCWIE AT -5-fER MOTHER'S m THIS WEEKEND T' ME MOTHER'S -THIS WEEKEND Berger not saying much O'Quinn gets the axe MONTREAL (CP) The partnership that brought Mont- real its first Grey Cup in 21 years split Friday when Al- ouettes owner Sam Berger fired John (Red' O'Quinn as the team's general manager. Berger immediately named J. I. Albrecht, assistant general manager and director of player personnel with the Canadian Football League club under the Berger-O'Quinn regime, to the general manager post. The decision to fire O'Quinn came amid reports of dissension In the club's front oftice, partic- ularly of O'Quinn's objections to the pecking order involved in Borne club affairs. Berger said simply: "Ob- viously I had to have good rea- sons, but because of legal impli- cations I can't say any more. "I'll have to fall back on legal terminology and just say 'I have discharged him for good and sufficient he told B news conference. HAS YEARS The firing throws up in the air the future of O'Quinn's five-year contract with the Alouetles, which his lawyer says still has two years to run. "I know Sam Berger Is an honorable man and I'm assum- ing he will honor the terms of my O'Quinn said in an interview from his home Fri- day. "I hope there Is no prob- lem In that regard. "I had hoped to survive all this and see this club come back to what it can be, but if they feel they can do better an- other way, I can only wish them all the best." Albrecht said he first got wind that something was afoot when he received a call from O'Quinn Thursday telling him he now was in charge of veteran play- ers contracts. As that meant more duties for Albrecht's office, he arranged to meet Berger Friday to disucss the situation. O'Quinn told Al- brecht not to go to Berger's of- fice without meeting him first. Albrecht said he tried to reach O'Quinn before the sched- uled meeting but to no avail. He answered Berger's charge that he was late by saying he had been trying to get in touch with O'Quinn thinking he wanted to attend the meeting. "When I got upstairs Red was called again and after a short discussion Mr. Berger told him he was I was hired." O'Quinn's statements of disap- pointment at the end of the partnership were echoed at least in part by Berger who said lie had not approached the deci- sion "with any gladness." "When I came to Montreal, the first thing I relied upon was Red he said. Berger had purchased the foundering Alouettes from pre- vious owner Joe Atwell follow- ing the 19C9 Grey Cup. He brought O'Quinn here, after the pairs long association as presi- dent and general manager re- spectively of Ottawa Rough Ri- ders. O'Quinn then brought in Albrecht, the man who now suc- ceeds him. O'Quinn's partnership with Stampede Wrestling TABER ARENA JULY 17 NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT TOR KAMATA v, DAN KROFFAT TRIPLE PORTZ find SUPERHAWK and RUHL vs TOMAASO and SITO and VILLA ROGERS vs BRUTUS BUTCHER vs PRINGLE S1.50 Watch Stampede .Wrestling. in CJOC-TV Berger brought the Rough Ri- ders Grey Cups in 1968 and 19G9 and the Alouettes won their first Grey Cup since 1949 under their direction in 1970, O'Quinn's first season as general manager of the Montreal club. Conditions at the club have clouded lately with the depar- ture last month of defensive coach Bob Ward who termed Etcheverry and the hold-out of several key play- ers. Others are playing out their options and there are reports of an austerity program. Berger told the news confer- ence he felt fortunate to have Albrecht as an instant replace- ment for O'Quinn and that the new general manager "knows all the ramifications of foot- ball." Albrecht served on the coach- Ing staffs of several United States universities prior to his appointment as special talent consultant in 1959 with the then-embryo American Football League. He was enlisted by Perry Moss in 1960 as director oE player personnel with the Al- ouettes. He resigned that post in 1903 to become assistant general manager and business manager of the AFL Oakland Raiders. Albrecht organized the Mont- real-based Quebec Rifles of the United Football League in 1964, serving as general manager and director of player personnel. He brought Etcheverry back to pro football in Montreal as coach of the Rifles. The new general manager then worked as an NFL scout until he was hired here by O'Quinn, following Berger's pur- chase of the Alouettes. Albrecht said he had not signed a new contract with the team, but that his first concern was to get the Alouetes back to the winning spot Ihe club held in 1970. The Als finished last in the four-team Eastern Football Conference in 1971.
