Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBIDGE HERAID Friday, July 23, 1971 ANDY CAPP Leonard glad he didn't quit Marichal not fooling anyone any more IT LASTS SO MUCH -f Sport of all sorts TO STAMPEDERS OTTAWA (CP) Ottawa Rough Riders' defensive back Bill Van Burkleo has been traded to Calgary Stampeders in return for Marcel deLeeuw, a punter and defensive back, the Ottawa club announced Thurs- day. The 28-year-old Van Burkleo, Rams upset over Rozelle's ruling .AMHERST, Mass. (AP) Commissioner Pele Rozelle of the National Football League ruled Thursday that in com- pensation for Phil Olsen, Los Angeles must give New Eng- land Patriots their first 1975 draft choice plus undetermined players or choices based upon the big defe.isw! lineman's per- formance this year. Hayes claims aid extortion DALLAS !AP) Wide re- ceiver Bob Hayes said Wednes- day he paid in extortion money last October after receiv- ing anonymous telephone calls threatening to bomb the home of Tom Landry, Dallas Cowboy coach. Hayes said in an interview: "These people told me they were going to bomb Tom's house, and if that didn't work they'd put a bomb in his car. They also said they'd bomb (club president) Tex Schramm's house. "They said they were Cowboy football fans and were going to get even for Tom putting me on the Hayes said. "I told them that was ridiculous over a contract, over a game. "Then they said either I was with them or against them, and they threatened to kidnap my little girl Rory, age 1'i at the time. That's when I asked them if I gave them S200 would they leave me alone and leave every- body else alone." Hayes said he put the money at a designated spot. "That seemed to do it." Hayes said. "I never heard from them again. I believe now I did the UTong thing if it happened again, I would call the police and the FBI." The commissioner's ruling on the day after Uie case was offi- cially given to him was an- nounced by the Patriots at a news conference at their train- ing camp here. General Man- ager Upton Bell said the club was "totally unhappy" with the compensation, adding thai "I do not agree with the decision one Kozelle also ordered the Rams to pay the Patriots the amount of Olsen's bonus and any expenses incurred in sign- ing him in 1970, when he was tbeir first draft choice. The six-foot-five 260-pounder from Utah State suffered a knee injury while practising for the College All-Star Game that sum- mer, then underwent surgery and missed the entire season. This summer his contrac1 with the Patriots was voided on a technicality. The NFL de- clared him a free agent, and he subsequently signed a three- year contract with the Hams. NEVER PLAYED AS PRO Rozelle, in his telegram to the Patriots announcing his decision on compensation, also said he felt it necessary to augment his decision with remarks because Olsen had never played profes sional football. He said he noted in making his decision that Olsen was a top prospect and selected fourth in the draft- He also said be cause of the injury Olsen has never been able to show his po- tential in pro ball. Finally, Rozelle said he cvalu atcd the offers made to the Pa triots for Olsen by other teams Under pro football rules, when the Rams acquired Olsen, thej and the Patriots tried to rcaci agreement on suitable compen sation. When the two club, could not come to any agree- ment, they turned the case ove to Rozelle as the rules also specify in such an instance.
