Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Negotiations may resume later this week July LETHBRIOGE L Battle lines have been drawn WDY CAFP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The battle lines have been drawn. The date is July the site Ohio. That is when annual Hall of Fame football game will be played between St. Louis Cardinals and Buffalo Bills. That is when a major con- frontation will take place be- tween the striking National Football League Players Association and the club owners. Graham Kelly If there was ever a city completely caught up in football that city would have to be the home of the our northern Edmonton. The Eskimos went to the well last coming up due to a superior Ottawa but this year the faithful in the Igloo expect nothing less than the Grey Cup championship. There are going to be a lot of disappointed fanatics if it doesn't turn out that way. They probably don't have all that much to worry about. Edmonton has been in the classic six times since entering the Western Conference in 1949. In their first Frank Clair's Toronto Argos defeated the Westerners in 1952. Toronto hasn't won since. Jackie Parker and company led the Green and Gold to three straight Grey Cup triumphs in the middle fifties. They lost to Ottawa in of in 1973. only Winnipeg has a better Grey Cup winning record than Ed- and they've been at it a lot longer. With the sky-high expectations in the whole organization from Head Coach Ray Jauch down to the waterboy are under a good deal of pressure. Coach Jauch doesn't mind a I'd rather be under pressure to finish first than try- ing to make the Ray doesn't mind the position he's in one bit better Edmonton than trying to nurse the southern entry in the CFL along. Ray Jauch as usual is completely cool and unflappable about the coming season. players really haven't ac- complished anything yet. The object of the game is to win the Grey Cup Until we do we haven't achieved our To achieve that Jauch will be making very few changes in the line-up that carried the Eskies to the Western ti- tle last year. What changes there will likely come on defence- hope we'll be stronger defensively this commented Jauch. where we want to be One newcomer with an excellent chance of cracking the line-up is Jodie Carter from Henderson State College. So far Jauch has been using Carter at left a spot where the Eskimos had trouble last year with the veteran Billy Cooper. Against Ot- Cooper was very whereas Carter intercepted two passes. Jauch added1 been very happy with Carter's play so far Besides those interceptions against Ot- Carter also broke up some key plays against Carter shows tremendous enthusiasm for his task jumping up and down and throwing the ball into the air when he makes an interception. That's the kind of spirit that coaches like to see. Another newcomer who will likely make the line-up on defence is veteran Mickey obtained in a trade from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Doyle is the boy who was honeymoon- ing in read about the Bomber training and dropped around for a look He the coaches he was better than anyone they had out there. They told the smart altex to put his money where his mouth was and he did. As it turned Doyle became an All-Star in the Western Conference. Ap- however. Doyle was a bit of a clubhouse and a critic of Jim Spavital. Over the Earl Lunsford dealt him away to the Eskimos. Lucky thing as it turned because Edmonton's rookie sensation Sam Britts defected to the Detroit Wheel of the WFL. Joining Doyle at linebacker will be Mike a and Bob Clarke from the University of Alberta or im- port Don Gray from San Jauch would like to go with two Canadians. The defensive backfield will likely see a lot of .changes with only the veteran Dick Dupuis assured of a starting berth. Canadians Bayne John and John Beaton will likely be regulars as will the import Jodie Carter. Billy Cooper should be available for back-up duty. One thing the Eskimos have is real depth in Canadians both offen- sively and on defence. The incomparable John Lagrone will anchor an outstanding defensive line. Joining Lagrone are veterans Ron Estay and Ron Forwick at the defensive end and Ed Molstad at right tackle. This fearsome foursome features a strong pass rush. They are a little vulnerable to the run. If Mickey Doyle can do an outstanding job in the that weakness against people like Johnny Musso and George Reed might well dis- appear. The Eskimos should be strong on the unless rookies come through for I would rate Edmonton as less effective on defence than was the case last year. t On it has been hard to tell during the exhibition season how tough Edmonton might be. Both Tyrone and George McGowan have been sidelined with injuries. The player's strike didn't help either. Coach Jauch had this to strike set us no question about that. Offences take a little longer to jell. we haven't had Walls and McGowan around for long. When Tyrone Walls is in there at tight end it makes quite a difference to our running game. But we've been using a boy from Washington Tim Krause. I like him. He's a real fine football Regardless of how fine a football player rookie Krause will his only chance of dislodging Walls will be if Canadians come through on leaving Jauch an import opening on offence. Don't plan on that. Edmonton will feature CFL Player of the Year George McGowan at split and Walls at tight end. Anchoring the best offensive line in the league will be centre Bob an all-star. Guards will be Roger Scales and Willie with Larry Watkins and Charlie Turner at the tackle spots. The Eskimo offensive line averages 257 pounds and six feet four inches in height lots of protection for Wilkinson and Lemmerman. All-star Roy Bell will once again be expected to carry most of the mail for the Eskimos. Calvin Harrell will be running out of the fullback replacing Gene Foster. I think Bell's effectiveness will be reduced without the blocking of Foster. Harrell will have to pick up the slack and gain lots of yards if Edmonton is going to be as potent as last year. Rounding out the backfield will be Canadians Don and Garry Lefebvre. At will be Tom Wilkinson and Bruce Lemmerman. Lemmerman is the more gifted athlete of the but Wilkey's heart is much more valuable to the club than Lemmerman's arm. If only Lemmerman had Wilkinson's guts and leadership I think that Ed- monton is not as strong at quarterback as many people think. Both Wilkinson and Lemmerman are good but both are also inconsistent. Wilkinson's strengths are Bruce's and vice-versa. Edmonton is not as strong as last year. But nobody else is either. Saskatchewan is in the process of making several key changes. B.C. could surprise a lot of people. Calgary and Forget it. So although not really im- should be able to come home in first place. Says good football team will respond to the com- petition. If our guys think they're better than everyone and just have to show up to then we'll get the stuffings kicked out of us. If they want to go out there and do a they can win. The league standings will be settled by one or two games during the possibly when we play Saskatchewan twice in August.

The NFL Management Council bargaining agent for the 26 club reaffirmed Tuesday that all exhibition games will be if that means lineups composed of free agents and the handful of veterans who have crossed picket lines. PLAY CANTON FIRST And the first of those exhibi- tion games is the Hall of Fame contest at Canton. The NFLPA has said it would take steps to see that the exhibition games are not played until a settlement in the dispute is reached. That presumably means a picket line of veterans. The Canton game is the only one still scheduled for the opening week of exhibition since the July 26 College All-Star game already has been scratched. spokesmen for federal mediator James Scearce and the two sides in- dicated that they might soon return to the bargaining perhaps before the weekend. The NFLMC said Tuesday that at least 77 veterans were in camp in defiance of the picket lines. By only 21 veterans were in camp on the final day of the 1970 NFLPA says the management group. Many of the veterans in are marginal players whose status on their club's roster is far from cer- tain. One place where the strike appeared to be breaking down was at Cincinnati Bengals camp in Ohio.

Barrow said he also sent a telegram to Leo former Argonaut coach now serving as general manager of the Southmen. Bengal veterans were ready to join the experienced players already in camp.
