Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta CFL exhibition schedule ends East clubs hold upper hand By THE CANADIAN PRESS .If pre-season exhibition games are any gauge in the Ca- nadian Football League, Conference teams appear to bold the balance of power at the of the 1973 schedule. Toronto Argonauts ran the record in games against Western Conference foes to six vans, a Joss and a tie when they defeated the winless Calgary Starnpeders 21-16 in Calgary Tuesday night. In other games on the final Bight of the exhibition schedule, Ottawa Eoughriders hung on for d 13-9 win over Hamilton Tiger- Catt and Columbia lions defeated Edmonton Es- kimos 26-13. Toronto and Montreal Alojjettes each finished with tjsree -vies and one defeat, the test records in the country. Montreal's only loss was also tte: East's only defeat, a 25-14 Eskimo triumph July 6. The Eskimos, Lions and Sas- katchewan Rough Riders had the- best western records, with two wins and two losses each. Calgary had a chance for tfeeir first exhibition win 'when Marion Lattimore intercepted a pass by Toronto quarterback ton touchdown in tbe first quar- ter. Dave Cutler added a con- vert, a field goal and a single. A series of penalties gave Hamilton seven downs in which to score a go-anead touchdown from inside the Ottawa 13 in the last minute. Their last three chances were from the two. A 10-yard pass from Rick Cassata to Lee FOODS, Gerry Organ's field goal and single and a twoimnt safety by Alec Locktogton accounted for Ottawa's points. Bin Etter threw a 13-yard pass to Tony Gabriel for Ham- ilton's only touchdown and Ian Sunter, who missed tbe convert kicked a field goal. On a third-down play on the Toronto Stampeder quarterback Jerry Keeling had wide receiver Gerry Shaw in the clear in the end zone, but was just short with his A 75-yard Joe Tbeisman to Eric Allen pass-and-run play! and a 30-yard run' by Leon M-cQu ay produced Toronto touchdowns. Place-kicker Zenon Andrusyshyn converted both and kicked a, single and two' field goals. Peter Liske, returning to the Stampeders after a tour of the National Football League, found receiver Harry 'Copeland with a pass from 24 yards out for one touchdown and Silas MeRinnie ran 12 yards for the other. BATTLE FLARED Toe-Lions used a grind-it-out running game and a tough de- fence to win a game that featured a number of roughing penalties 'and ended with Edmonton flanker Bobby Taylor battling with B.C. defen- sive back Barry Arden as Hie two teams filed off the field. Don Moorbead and Munro Etey each got B.C. touchdowns on runs, while Moorhead threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Johnny Musso on tbe game's fi- nal play; Ted Gerela added two converts and a pair of field goab. Tom Wilkinson passed to Cal- vin Harrell for the only Edmon- Rentzel ousted for '73 season NEW YORK CAP) Lance entzel, vide receiver with Los Angeles Rams, has been suspended for the 197? season for conduct detrimental to the National Football League. Rentzel has been under pro- bation after being indicted for jndecent exposure and, on an- other occasion, for possession of marijuana. Fete Rozelle, NFL commis- sioner, said Tuesday in a for- mal announcement that he-bad notified Rentzel by letter of the action, adding that the player might apply, for reinstatement at the end of the 1973 season. Rentzel's status will be re- viewed at that time if such an application is made, Rozelle added, v Rozelle imposed the ban after study of a record of a hearing in file NFL office June 20 and of additonal documents pro- vided by Rentzel's representa- tives last The purpose of the hearing was to review probation im- posed on Rentzel by the com- mission in 1971. John Mackey says goodbye IRVINE, Calif. (AP) John Mackey, voted pro football's all- time greatest tight end, an- nounced his retirement Tues- day. Mackey, was a three-time AH Pro and a five-time Pro Bowl performer during nine Na- tional Football League seasons with Baltimore Colts. After a bitter farewell in Bal- timore, he signed with San Diego Chargers as a free agent last year and was a backup tight end behind Pettis Norman, catching U passes. On Nov. 30, 1970, Renfeel then a member of the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested for in- decent exposure involving a 10- year-old girl in Dallas. He was indicted and, after pleading guilty, received a five-year pro- bated sentence. On May 19, 1971, he was traded to the Rams for Wen- dell Tucker and Billy Truax. On Jan. 11 of this year, he was arrested on a charge of possessing marijuana for sale in Los Angeles. He pleaded guilty to the possession charge but announced he would appeal on grounds the evidence was ob- tained illegally. On May 22 he was to 90 days in jail and fined He placed on fhree years' probation. The NFL probe ensued. In Los Angeles where he has been training with the Rams, Rentzel commented: "Mr. Ro- zelle took this action based on his review of the facts and cir- cumstances surrounding my re- cent legal proceedings. "I am unable to comment on the case since it is under ap- peal and wffl be reviewed some- time in the fall. "However, I can repeat what I have said before. I am con- fident that when the whole story comes out, I wffl win that ap- peal." Rentzel said he hopes to he a member of the 1974 Rams team. He said his immediate plans are to complete a novel on which he has been working. He previously published an auto- biography outlining his prob- lems and successes. Owner Carroll Rosenbloom said, "The commissioner made his decision. Lance Rentzel has said he will abide by the de- "The Rams win have no fur- ther comment concerning this matter." Graham Kelly TkARRELL ROYAL, coach of the perennially tough University of Texas Long- horns, has little regard for the forward pass. The former Edmonton Eskimo coach of 1953 vintage, and now grand old man of Texas football put it this way: "When you throw the ball, three things can happen. Two of them aren't good." It is obvious that Mr. Royal would be less than enthusiastic about a gentle- man named Peter Liske call- ing the signals for his.foot- ball club. In the Texas of Canada, otherwise known as Southern Alberta, no such qualms exist regarding filling the air with footballs when confronted .with "stiff opposition from oth- er Western rivals. In fact, many followers of die Calgary Stampeder football club look upon tee period 1966-1968 as banner years in tbe long, glor- Wben owners of profession- al football teams are faced with the angry denunciations of fans, infuriated after wit- nessing loss upon humiliating loss, they usually can the coach first, and send the quar- terback packing second. One wonders when these people grow up and realize that sometimes the obvious is not the right thing to do. Any football fan of even little knowledge should know that quite often the quarterback is helpless when it comes to leading a severely under-tal- ented team to victory. At any rate, both Jerry Williams, coach, and Liske, became the scapegoats of Philadelphia when tbe club couldn't win. Yon win remember, of course, that Williams coached Cal- gary during Liske's days. In fact, both departed for tbe States about the same time. If Liske makes his return as successful as that of Hamilton coach Jerry Williams, Jim In tbe first place, Mr. Liske won't have the playmates of yesteryear. His premier re- ceiver in the good old days was one worthy by name of Terry Evansben, the No. 1 receiver of the Montreal Alou- ettes. Evansben is an excep- tionally gifted young man, possessing tremendous speed and agility, and great hands. Evans hen was traded to Montreal for all-Canadian centre, Basil Bark. Peter's next favorite target was tight end Herman Harrison, a man who could catch the ball if it was anywhere near him. Harrison has very bad knees; and is a shadow of his former self. Neither man has been replaced. True, Gerry Shaw is much better than in 1967, but can one man do it ied history of their opera- tions. During Oat time Pis- tol Peter Liske was at the controls, and Western gridi- rons, indeed, were the scenes of many an aerial circus. Af- ter Liske departed for the greener pastures of the Na- tional Football League, little actually changed, as Jerry Keeling continued to throw and throw and throw. He had pretty fair results, with two Grey Cup appearances and one victory. Peter Liske is back in town. After being cut adrift by the hapless Philadelphia Eagles, Mr. Liske is returning to the scene of his former triumphs. During bis four-year stay in the league across the line, Liske enjoyed indifferent success with first the Denver Broncos and secondly the Ea- gles. Neither club of course, gave Liske much to work with. Duncan and Rogers Lebew will be ecstatic to say the least. laske comes home with some pretty impressive cred- entials. He holds the record for most passes in one sea- son, SOS, most completions, 308, and most touchdown passes in one season, 40. AH of those records woe set dur- ing the 1967 campaign. In his four seasons with Calgary, Liske had a ,566 completion percentage on passes. In other words, this man can But that's aH be Al- though Calgary supporters are Viewing the return of Liske as a second coming for football greatness, don't go out and bet the beer money that Peter can deliver. Cir- cumstances are different now than those halygon days when Liske and company lived by the pass and generally "got away with it. alone? In years to come, Tom Forzani, a Calgary boy will be an outstanding receiver, but that takes time. In the second place, Liske doesn't have much of a back- field to work with. During part of his previous sojourn with Calgary, tbe redoubtable Lovell Cofeman gave file Stamps an alternative to the aerial attack. With Jesse Mms on the limp, Calgary must rely on Silas McKmnie and Rudy Lmterman, both good journeymen, but hardly stars. The Stamp's failure to recruit a real good, running back over the years has been somewhat of a mystery to me. They never won the Grey Cup under Liske, the absence of. a good backfieU being one of the reasons. July 25, 1973 THI LtTHftRIDOt HERAIB 3 So Liske is stepping into a situation quite different from tin past. Calgary fans are deluding themselves if they think Liske wffl make all that much of a difference. I think Calgary has a problem at quarterback. Jerry Keeling should have a good season in 1973. He is a fine football player, and remember, the only Calgary quarterback since 1948 to lead his dub to a Grey up victory. What Calgary needs to win is a linebacker to replace Wayne Harris, a fullback, a tight end and a halfback. Jim Lmdsy and Keeling can han- dle the quarterbacking chores. If they don't come up with tbe players needed, Liske won't make that much of a difference. The players say Liske is a great leader. Defensive play- ers such as Larry Robinson figure the offense needs more consistent and better leader- ship. Other players have a strong sense of loyalty to Jer- ry Keeling. Don't be surprised if real dissension is the result of Liske's return. Also, don't be too surprised if back-up quarterback Jim Lindsay is traded to tbe B.C. lions for a good running back.
