Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TH1 mVTSRIfcOf HWAIB y, July 17, 197? SULLY SAYS -By Pat WILL Bobby Hull play for Canada when Team Canada meets the Russians in an eiglil-game series? The smart money says yes. The National llocliey League will have lo back flown from Ihcir high horses and declare the former Chicago Black Hawks' superstar eligible. They will have no choice. Who says? I want to sec Hull in the line-up wlicn Canada takes on (he Russians for the "Who's the hcst in the world of hockey" series in September. But why is it everylime we approach an international affair wheth- er it be hockey or Olympics or just an international meet we end up dickering among ourselves? If Hull doesn't play will other players, who have been asked to tryoul, boycott the series? Or is there a fear that some American NHL team owners will rencg on their decision lo allow players from their club play for Team Canada despite the fact the series interrupts training camps' Hull, at present is ineligible because he has signed with the World Hockey Association. The ruling, which makes Hull ineligible, is straight and simple. When the NHL agreed to supply the players for Team Canada, the rule that all players must sign with their NHL clubs before participating was made. The rule became known last Thursday when Team Canada coach Harry Sinden announced Hull as one of 35 players he had selected to play against Russia. Hull, in the last decade, has been the biggest drawing card in the NHL if not in all hockey. No one player, even the great Gordie Howe, could electrify a crowd in the manner Hull could. -He indeed, is a most valuable commodity, but he is only one man. One Hull of a hockey player, but just one. The NHL and in particular the Chicago Black Hawks, I am sure, will stand nose-to-nose with anyone arguing their decision. The Black Hawks lost Hull to Ben Hatskin and the Winnipeg Jets of the WHA. 1 tend to agree with the NHL in standing up for their ruling. They, along with Hockey Canada, did the work to set up the series with the Russians and now an upstart group of hockey people are horning in on their project. It's as simple as that. If Hull were not a super- star but just a solid, all-round player who jumped to the WHA, would the fuss be as great if he were left off the team? Would the trouble be as great if Hull were a member of the Los Angeles Sharks or New England Whalers? Would Prime Minister Trudeau ask that the NHL "take whatever steps may be neces- sary" to allow Hull to play? There is no doubt in my mind that the whole situa- tion would be overlooked if it were Rick Ley or Bernie Parent formerly of the Leafs and both solid perform- ers in the NHL. Parent was left off the club be- cause he signed with the WHA Philadelphia club and no one can tell me any different. Possibly Hull has the answer, I can't for the life of me remember anyone asking him his opinion.

A crowd of had some uncomplimentary remarks lor their hometown Eskimos as Saskatchewan collected all b u t one of their points after Edmon- ton miscues to win their first game in three pre-season starts. A second-down fumble by Ed- m o n t o n quarterback Bruce Lemmerman got the Rough- riders started early in the first quarter. Tim Ross recovered on the Eskimos' 21-yard hue and Saskatchewan quarterback Ron Lancaster then threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to flanker Bob Pearce. The second 'Rider touchdown came midway thruogh the sec- ond quarter, three plays after Edmonton fullback Sam Scar- ber was stopped on a third-down gamble. Saskatchewan took over on the Eskimos' 35-yard line and moved in for six points on Lancaster's nine-yard pass to halfback Steve Molnar. Jack Abendschan converted both touchdowns. Edmonton's only point In the first half came after Jerry Grif- fin intercepted Ihe first pass at- tempted by rookie Saskatche- wan quarterback Mike Junck. Dave Cutler got the single when he was wide on a 16-yard field goal attempt. Saskatchewan went ahead 16-1 in the second half on missed field goal attempts by Abend- schan that went for singles. The first followed an interception by Roth. Edmonton finally got a touch- down early in the fourth quarter when linebacker Therman Couch intercepted a Junck pass and ran it 01 yards to score. The Eskimo convert attempt was a weird affair that eventu- ally covered 35 yards. The snap was fumbled, Culler recovered and flipped the ball to Lemmer- man who then passed 35 yards to Tyrone Walls for the point. The Eskimos got on the score- board again after defensive halfback Garry Lefcbvre inter- cepted a Bubba Wyche pass on the Saskatchewan 38. Cutler was good on a 31-yard field goal a few plays later. There were six Interceptions and three fumbles in the game. Lancaster, Junck and Wyche combined to complete 15 of 33 passes for 200 yards wliile Lcm- merman and rookie Dave Syme hit for 13 of 31 for 165 yards. Golf league All-star pitchers named SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Gary Nolan of Cincinnati, the National League percentage leader, Stove Carllon of Phila- delphia the majors' lop slrikc- oiii. pilchcr, and streaking Bob Gibson of St. Louis were among nine pitchers named today by National League manager Danny Murtaugh for next Tues- day's All-Star game in Atlanta.

Hull, who recently signed n lucrative contract as playing coach of Winnipeg Jels of the new World Hockey Association, is barred from joining Ihe tenni by n clause in the agreement between Hockey Canada and the National Hockey League requir- ing all team members to sign their NHL contracts before turning up at training camp Aug. 13. Dawson, who will attend a meeting of Hockey Canada directors shortly to review Hull's status, told a Winnipeg news conference Tuesday "Ihe oeople don't want the NHL dic- tating to us." CLAUSE NOT APPROVED Furthermore, he contended at the Hockey Canada direc- tors had never approved the clause requiring players to sign Lheir contracts. It was an "ex- clusive" arrangement between NIIL president Clarence Camp- bell and Hockey Canada's exec- utive committee that had not been submitted to the board for ratification. Dawson, a 47-year-old former Liberal member of the Mani- toba legislature, said the issue bears a strong resemblance to the 1970 dispute with the Inter- national Hockey Federation. We said we wanted to be allowed to play any Canadian and the Russians or Swedes or whoever are not going to dictate who is going to play on our team. "Now we find ourselves in the position where Mr. Campbell and company are telling us who is going to play on the team." Douglas Fisher, chairman of the executive committee, said the Hockey Canada board meet- ing was made necessary by Prime Minister Trudeau's re- fusal to meet with Campbell and representatives of the NHL Players' Association after inter- vening last week on Hull's be- half. SUGGESTS TALKS In Us reply to Campbell's in- vitation, the prime minister sug- gested it would be more useful to negotiate with Hockey Can- ada. Fisher said bis six-man com- mittee will make a presentation to the board when it meets in approximately 10 days. "There are people on our board who are disturbed, who, I gather, agree with the prime he said. "They'll be heard. I wouldn't want to predict the conse- quences of the meeting. But we do have to respond to the prime minister's initiative." Dawson said Toronto lawyer Allan Eagleson, one of the members of the executive com- mittee, may be involved in a conflict of interest. Eagleson is legal adviser to the NHL Play- ers' Association and also repre- sents a number of players indi- vidually. "I would suggest be probably represents other people who are negotiating contracts with the NHL and until such time as their contracts are signed that he wants to keep Bobby Hull in the wings as one of the things he can deb'ver at a later date. Eagleson was in Moscow with other team officials working out details for the games to be played there.

Jim Browitt, administrator of the new pro league, said about 25 per cent of the association's players will he velerans of the National Hockey League. "Right now, we have signed half of all Ihe available players in the Browift told re- porters at a news conference ending the meeting. By available, he said he meant all those players who don't have long-term contracts with NHL teams. The WHA, he said, is trying to avoid any court problems if possible. The biggest name among the signees is Bobby Hull, who jumped the NHL lo Winnipeg Jets of the WHA for a IJon contract. Browitt refused to give the exact number of NHL players signed. Gary Davidson, the league president who also presided at the birth of the American Bas- ketball Association in 1967, said the WHA will not make the same mistakes other new pro leagues have made in the past. "Thai's because we've experi- enced those things he said. "We know how to handle trouble areas before they be- come trouble." Davidson predicted a high cal- ibre of play in the new league. "I see the WHA reaching par- ity with the National Hockey League within three years. And I'm talking about the top NHL clubs." It was announced that the in- augural 1972-73 season will open in Houston Oct. 12 when Hous- ton Acros play Chicago Cou- gars. The Aeros will compete hi tha Western Division with Chicago, Minnesota, Winnipeg, Alberta and Los Angeles.
