of the game Given the players and the format of the Canadian game it can compete with any football league anywhere for the entertainment dollar But It s still in trouble demonstrated clearly bv the manner rn which the powers that be rn Canadian lootball reacted to the threat of the World Football League The initial reaction of the CFL to the formation of the Woi Id Football League was indifference and flippant dismissal Even though the carpetbagger of the century, Gary Davidson had already got two other pro leagues off the ground the brg brass in the CFL pretended that there was no real reason for concern Ralph Sazio the general manager of the Hamilton Tiger Cats had been in on the ground floor with John Bassett Jr on the possibility of a WFL franchise for Toronto Although Sazio later confessed to being a CFL spy money is monev and one can t help wonder that the GM of one of the league s greatest franchises might not have moved in the direction of the WFL if things had worked out right Sam Berger made it clear that he had bought the Montreal Alouettes in hopes of someday being awarded an NFL franchise for Canada s fun city After all wasn t a brand new stadium being built for the Olympics9 When the Amerrcan sports invaders were stopped at the border we soon found out what made run With no future big league franchise in sight Mr Berger immediately tried to unload the Alouettes Johnnv Rodgers and all A gentleman in Toronto gave him the answer he deserved bv offering a paltry half million dollars for the club At an} rate it seems obvious to me that two of the four bosses of the Eastern Conference were really on a long term basis at least undermrning the Canadian Football League they professed to hold so dear With friends of football like that who needs enemies0 At the heart of the WFL invasion of Canada was the Bassett familv of Toronto John Sr owned the Argonauts as well as being the major shareholder in the CTV and its flagship station CFTO John Jr already owner of the Toros of the WHA wanted a football team of his own He hired the best general manager in the business the man his father had ured Leo Cahill The two proceeded to put together a football team All of a sudden the CFL objected Over the years there has been no love lost between the Toronto Argonauts and the rest of the league From Jackie Parker on the coast to Frank Clair in the east all you have to do is mention John Barrow s name to get a prettv negative reaction Barrow happens to be the GM of the hopefuls from Hogtown I gather also that John Bassett is not on everybody s list of favontv people in the CFL Over the vears John Bassett made important contributions to Canadian football He brought in outstanding performers like Joe Theismann Leon McQuaj Jrm Stillwagon and Jrm Corngal His network telecast countless numbers of football games often at a loss while the people s network with a mandate to promote everything Canadian ran NFL games rn competition Before the Bassett era the good ship Argonaut was a garbage scow The blue and white couldn t draw flies to CiSE stadium Bassett turned the team around made it a contender and filled the park He had an entertaining team that was a good draw in the other cities in the CFL John Bassett was one of the few owners who thought big league Although Bassett was prepared to operate his club in competition with his son s Northmen the CFL made him sell Thrs was a real error Bassett would have grven his offspring a real run for the money in Toronto and in fact I am convinced that the 'Vrgos would have filled their stadium and competed with ease However Marc Lalonde as a result of a speech in Regina made all of this academic According to the worthy minister there was an agreement between the CFL and government to keep the NFL out of Canada To be consistent Mr Lalonde ignored Emerson s dictum that consistency is the hobgobblin of small mrnds and pettv politicians and proceeded to introduce a bill that would ban the WFL Although the CFL moguls shed a cnyohle tear in concern over the government s becoming involved in sport they immediately ran for cover behind Mr Lalonde s skirts when Bassett proceeded to sign the guts of the Miami Dolphins Jim Ruck Paul Warwield and Larry Czonka Later Ken Stabler of Oakland was landed by Birmingham s Jack Gotta Calvin Hill defected to the WFL The new league was for real The onh CFL boss to protest the government s action was Sam Berger who sadly watched his chances of landing an NFL franchise somedav gradually slip awav However to make a short story long the government went down to defeat the Northmen became the Memphis Southmen and the threat was over Lalonde like Horatio at the bridge had taken his token stand against American domrnation and had succeeded The CFL would now look after themselves having only to meet the competition for players that was sure to come from the other league Drd the CFL learn rts lesson'' Did thev resolve to tighten up their operation and really promote therr game'' Of course not The CFL fatcats watched Lalonde s brll dre and the Northmen leave town and then proceeded to forget everything that happened Lalone wanted the CFL to expand Bob Harris of London hired former Calgarv coach Jim Duncan as GM and then went to the league meeting in Edmonton at the end of May to win a franchise for his area The league asked for S2 7 million dollars Too much said Harris and walked out According to Calgarv GM Garv Hobson a good deal was lacking in the London proposal But the league appears to have ignored Lalonde s demand for expansion and has vet to explain to the Canadian public whv Thev are entitled to an explanation The league has also decided to ignore Lalonde on another matter that of increasing the number of Canadians of each team The league is studv ing the problem I don t believe that Lalonde should have tried to ban the WFL The Canadian game would have survived in Toronto and elsewhere simplv because it is better entertainment The bej.1 football game that I saw last vear was the final between Saskatchewan and Edmonton The Super Bowl was a surefire cu e for insomnia forget the purists who insist that the qualiU of plav in the NFL is better As far as technique is concerned that is true But professional sport is entertainment vear the Western final was a better bin for vour
