Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 31, 1970 NFL Veterans Refuse To Report To Camp Owners, Players Locked In Stalemate By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A scoreless tie existed today in the pro football contract dis- pute after UID veteran players put the ouiiers on the offensive with a. coffin-corner kick. National Football League vet- erans, almost to a man, refused to report to training camp Thursday after the owners huiig out the welcome sign. It thus appeared to be the owners' move next. "The situation is ntore critical than people said Wel- lington Mara, president of New York Giants. He said his team's scheduled exhibition with Green Bay Aug. 8 would probably be cancelled if the situation isn't settled by this weekend. When no veterans showed up at Cincinnati Bengals' camp Thursday, general manager Paul Brown closed shop. Appar- ently dismayed over the bitter, sometimes-volatile .contract war, Brown said it could mean the end of the 1970 season. "I will be in favor o! tolling the Meet Rougliriders Tonight Eskimos Looking To Score More REGINA (CP) Edmonton Eskimos, the team with the bes defence in the Canadian Feet- ball League last year, hcpe to show a flew ingredient when they meet Saskatchewan Rough- riders tonight: scoring power. Eskimos in 1869 had the sec- ond-feeblest offence in the CFL, exceeded only by Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the team they beat for fourth place in the Western Football Conference, as three quarterbacks c o u 1 d n 't help them. Now with two new quarter- backs, Rusty Clark and Don Trull, a new head coach in Ray Jauch and ssme sharp-looking pass receivers, the club wants to prove that a 25-21 exhibition win over Saskatchewan last week was deserved. Jauch, assistant last year to the now-departed Neil Arm- strong, has inherited a club that gave up only yards in 1969 but moved the ball just yards, going the ground route more than most teams. "Tin-owing the ball is a lot easier than running Jauch said. "The reason why we're not running the ball more is that we have some excellent re- ceivers." "I think there's a good chance that Clark will start at quarter- back, but it's not definite. Every time we've asked to do something he's dons it." Jauch said he also is inter- ested in a look at Gwen Cooper, a castoff from Toronto Argo- nauts who would be making his first appearance in an Eskini uniform, although newcomer Sam Campbell is fighting for the same tight end spot. Meanwhile, Saskatchewan Roughriders will be depending again on veteran quarterback Ron Lancaster who, despite a reported ailing tin-owing arm passed sharply Tuesday night in the Roughriders1 season-opening 42-9 win over British Columbia Lions. Chiefs Favored Over All-Stars CHICAGO (AP) The 37th all-star football game, glumly overshadowed by pro football's bitter labor impasse, will send the world champion Kansas City Chiefs as a 12-point favorite against the cream of the 1969 collegiate senior crop at Soldier Field tonight. An announced strike by the National Football Players Asso- ciation Thursday in rebuttal to a take-it-or-leave-it move by club owners in a pension scrap cast a pall on the charity clas- sic. The owners Wednesday opened their camps to any vet- erans willing to report after Dreaking off contract talks Tuesday. The Chiefs, who won the pro championship last Jan. 11 by crushing Minnesota Vikings 23-7 n the Super Bowl, have had only five full practice days due to the labor dispute which nearly resulted in cancellation of the all-star game. But the oddsmakers figure that with a minimum of preparation, the Chiefs are cap- able of handing the ex-collegi- ans their seventh straight beat- ing in a series now standing 25-9-2 in favor of the pro champs. Coach Otto Graham, whose all-stars recorded the last two collegiate victories in 14 years Green Bay Packers in 1963 and Detroit Lions in also has been harrassed by the NFL dispute. Although practising at North- western University since July 10, the all-stars held a one-day mini-strike in sympathy with the NFL veterans on July 16, and failed to get in a customary game-type scrimmage planned with either St. Louis Cardinals or Chicago Bears. Punt return specialist Larry DeGraw was hurt in the game and has been put on the injury list with a torn knee ligament. Adaptable Alan Ford will take his spot tonight. Coach Eagle Keys, who al- ways means business when his team goes against the club that was his last employer, wants a look at how newcomers Dave Denny and Nolan Bailey shape up ait tight end. The position went up for grabs after tough-blocking Jim Warden retired at the end of last season. Keys also would like to see more of backup quarterback Don Weiss, ob- tained from Winnipeg earlier this year in a trade. Hie game, opening the regu- lar season for Edmonton, begins at 8 p.m. CST and will be tele- vised on the CTV west network. Bankers Lose Woolco clinched first place in the Businessmen's Fastball league Wednesday evening by downing the Bank of Nova Scotia 1B-4. Elaine Spackman was the winning pitcher as he bested Wayne Mears. Woolco batters had the heavy artillery out as Pete McKenna, feith Nugent and Brain He- ringer all had home runs, Mc- Cenna's was a grand slam ef- 'ort. Trevor Norlin chipped in with a triple and two doubles. FUU FLAVOUR you can really enjoy said Brown, meanin to call it off. Another owner, who asked I remain anonymous, was mui optimistic. "I really don't think we'v given them enough h said. "Twenty-four hours jus wasn't enough time for mos players to pack their bags an get to camp. "I think you'll see their rank beginning to break up Saturday Apparently toping to undei mine the unity of the strikin NFL Players Association, ers unlatched their trainin camp gates Thursday with th exhibition season only a wee away. There was little reaction. Les than a dozen vets showed up a the star-studded bulk of til NFLPA chose to stay together. The Joe Narrraths, Fran Tar sentons and Roman Gabriels stayed home. One veteran, Mike Curtis o Baltimore Colts, defied th Players Association. Curtis, Baltimore's No. 1 draf choice in 1965 and an all-leagui selection two years ago, got a round of applause from the rookies when he appeared at the Colts' training table. Curtis said he opposed the players association stand and indicated one reason he re- ported was because he liked the Colt management and felt he owed them an' appearance in camp. PLAYERS DIG IN the NFLPA ay to stick it needed to satisfy their demands for a new contract. John Mackey of the Colts, head of the players' group, an- nounced in Chicago that Hie vet- erans were officially on strike. He declared the owners' action of opening camps was a deliber- ate attempt to split the teams. The dispute mainly involves pension demands of million over four years by the players and the owners' offer of lion. Five days of negotiations with federal mediators broke down in Philadelphia Tuesday. Leroy Kelly, Cleveland's fine running back, didn't show up Thursday but said he remained undecided whether he'd report later. Of course, the veterans of Kansas City Chiefs continued to train for tonight's game with the college all stars in Chicago under a green light from the NFLPA. But they've vowed to break camp after the charity game if the affair is not settled.' ANDY CAPP THE BREWERY'S ON ME BACK AGAIN, ANDY YES.

"There is no way for me to >redict the says George Chuvalo, Canadian heavy- veight champion from Toronto, nd Foreman meet next Tues- ay in a 10-round heavyweight oxing bout at Madison Square Garden. Although Chuvalo and Fore- nan were reluctant to make redictions, other fight figures rere not as hesitant. "Chuvalo will take everything lit of Foreman after a few said Jerry Quarry, rho Chuvalo knocked out in rounds in his last Garden [ipcarance. "I saw Foreman fight and one ling I know for sure, he can't ake shots to the body too good, e's not fast enough to avoid hem so Chuvalo should have m ready for the kill after four five rounds." Yank Durham, manager of eavyweight champion Joe Fra- er, took the opposite view. "Foreman will bust him (Chu- ilo) up and it'll be over after po, three said Dur- am. "We've been looking at Fore- an for a long time now and lis kid is a natural urham said. Foreman, 21, has won 21 fights since turning pro out a year ago after winning the Olympic heavyweight title at Mexico City. Eighteen of his victories have been by knock- outs. If he can get by Chuvalo, he is considered a possible chal- lenger for Frazier in six months to a year from now. Chuvalo, at 32, has a six-fight victory streak going and says Foreman is rushing things to fight him at this stage of his career. "He's pretty easy to hit, espe- cially with a right said the Canadian champion, who has 59 by knock- losses and two draws in his career. ''The longer the fight goes the better it will be for me. Fore- man has only gone 10 rounds twice and both times he was well spent in the closing rounds." Chuvalo was then asked by reporters if he was predicting a knockout in the late rounds. "I don't predict said Chuvalo. "I leave that up to you 'guys. I hope you pick the right guy this time." Chuvalo was referring to fore- casts by New York sportwriters that he would lose to Quarry.
