Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
LETHBRIDGE June National Hockey League members will meet By AL MCNEIL MONTREAL iCP) Player drafts, current and future expansion, rule changes and individual awards for performance last season highlight the fourday annual meeting of the Na- tional Hockey League which begins here Monday. In addition to its annual intraleague draft scheduled for opening day when the 16 existing teams pick players from one another's rosters, the league will hold an expansion draft Wednesday to stock its two newest Capitals and Kansas City Scouts. The addition of the two new teams will round out an 18- team league for the 1974-75 season. The expansion draft will see the two new clubs each select 22 skaters and two goaltenders from the ranks of the existing clubs. But the Scouts, may have difficulty finding a place for their players to perform after the selection. The Missouri-based club has already had its home opener postponed until Nov. weeks after the season is scheduled to of delays in construction of its arena. The delays were caused by labor disputes in Kansas City and club officers are scheduled to submit a progress report to the league governors following an inspection this week. While the Kansas City situ- ation is under review the governors will be asked to take another look at three applications submitted by cities seeking to join the NHL in 1976. The Diego, Seattle and are members of the Western Hockey League. However, it is unlikely any firm decision of the acceptance of two of these cities will be reached next week. Also up for discussion will be the sale of California Golden Seals. The club currently is in the hands of the NHL after the league bought it back from Charles 0. Finley mid-way through last season for an estimated million. Clarence Campbell, NHL president, said the league has had several offers for the Oak- land-based which will be screened and if necessary negotiated in the future. Campbell said the league will also move to speed up games through an amendment to its rules. In past seasons, a player who did not proceed directly to the penalty box after being penalized, was subject to a 10- minute misconduct penalty if he argued too strenuously with the referee about the call. It is proposed that a bench minor penalty be imposed against the offending player's team instead of the misconduct.

Attn.: Controller STU DOW GREG HAMILTON Jr. Miners host Spikes The Lethbridge Junior Miners will be in action Sunday when they host the Calgary Golden Spikes for a Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League doubleheader at Henderson Park. The locals will be looking for a couple of victories to push their 2-3 league record over the .500 mark. Coach Doug Frier will start Jon Petrunia in the opener, with Stu Dow tentatively scheduled to open on the mound in the nightcap. The Golden Spikes presently sport a 3-4 season record after losing 3-2 to the Acme Pirates in an 11-inning contest Thursday night. Earlier this year, the Spikes split a doubleheader with the same Vauxhall Jet team tha the Miners downed 11- Thursday. The locals will probably stick with the line-up change? which worked so well agains the Jets. Frier moved Greg Hamilton in to catch, ane shifted Dennis Hatt to shortstop. Meanwhile, the Lethbridge Lakers hit the road again this: weekend, travelling to Edmonton for a pair of gamer against the Edmonton Tigere Saturday and Sunday. The Lakers are still looking for their initial victory of the season, having been stung twice in road games against the Calgary Giants ane Jimmies. More cries of slavery By RED SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORK "After 12 years in the major leagues I do not feel that I am a piece of property to be bought and sold irrespective of my wishes. I believe that any system that produces that result violates my basic rights as a citizen and is inconsistent with the laws of the United States and of the several states." "Pete Rozelle and Ted Kheel will answer that athletes are 'well paid' to give up their freedom Il am appalled that in the United States of America people can still make economic arguments to justify the taking away of a man's freedom and dignity You cannot pay me enough for me to allow you to sell me or trade me." "The present system in football does not impose an absolute restraint on player transfers this system has worked reasonably well. The players' demand for 'no system' would constitute anarchy." "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." The author of the first paragraph is Curt Flood, who was a baseball player when he wrote it in a letter addressed to the baseball commissioner on Dec. 24. 1969. The second paragraph is by John Mackey, the great end who was leader of the Professional Football Players Association four years ago in their last scarifying exercise in collective bargaining with their employers. It was written to appear in last Sunday's New York Times alongside a statement from Theodore W. Kheel. the clubowners' labor counsel, which included the third paragraph above. Anybody unfamiliar with the source of the fourth paragraph will have to look it up for himself. For some years now. it has seemed probable that basketball would be the first professional team sport to discard the reserve system, which in effect gives the employer outright ownership of his employees. At least some men who own basketball teams are confident they could operate successfully hiring players the same way Macy hires sales clerks, floorwalkers and department heads. It is beginning to appear, however, that when the inevitable bust-out comes to pass, the membership of the National Football League Players Association may go over the wall ahead of their roundball brother. There is good reason to believe that what the players cali "freedom issues" will have to be resolved this summer before the first exhibition game can be played. The owners will only cripple themselves if they shut their eyes to this situation. They can "hunker down and stonewall it." but their morning paper ought to show them the unwisdom of that course. The longer they temporize, the more pressure they will put on themselves to make llth-hour concessions rather than sacrifice receipts from one exhibition. In 1970 they tried intimidation. They talked of shutting down for a season, which would have meant defaulting on television contracts involving many millions. They threatened to staff their teams with rookies, as if their TV sponsors and cash customers would hold still for that. They warned the players that loss of one weekend of exhibitions would rest million, and this would have to come out of player salaries. The players didn't scare, and at last Pete Rozelle had to call the disputants together and keep them together for 22 hours to get a contract. Ted Kheel participated in those negotiations as a mediator, a role in which he has had wise experience. That job calls for patience, fairness and impartiality. Now he is the owners" hired man and needs none of those qualities. This time around, his job is to defend the owners" position. Accordingly, he has been parroting the owners" threadbare argument that the feudal system they have created is the only system under which their business can survive. As a reasonable man, he must know this is utter nonsense. As a fair man. he must recognize the trugn of John statement that "if freedom will destroy the N.F.L, then the N.F.L. should be destroyed." Kheel is on firmer ground when he argues that the players' economic demands are unrealistic. One who shares this view is Ed Garvey. executive director of the union. To be sure, Garvey doesn't say so in so many words. Tell him he is demanding too much and he laughs. I'd hate to have the players come around and tell me I asked for too he says. He knows and Kheel knows that Hie financial issues can be negotiated. Kneel complains that the players reluse to negotiate the freedom issues.
