close TORONTO (CP) While both sides say agreement is far off, members of the Canadian Football League Players' Association and league officials meet again Thursday in an effort to agree on a two-year contract Talks broke off Saturday after a sixth session and more than 270 of the 288 veterans under contract to the CFL then submitted their resignations Several players, however, have contracts stipulating they must attend training camps regardless of the stand taken by the players' association These include wide receiver Johnny Rodgers of Montreal Alouettes and quarterback Don Jonas of Winnipeg Blue Bombers Still others do not belong to the association, including Marv Luster, a linebacker with Montreal Ralph Sazio, general manager of Hamilton Tiger- Cats, also said at least four veteran players on his team have not resigned He would not name them NONE HAVE REPORTED No veterans, however, have reported at any of the CFL training camps already open Most of them have found their own practise facilities Ottawa veterans, for ex- ample, were given Lansdowne Park as their practice site the field normally used by the Rough Riders The CFL had decided earlier that veterans could no longer use league parks or team equipment, but the Ottawa veterans checked with city hall and found that the Riders' lease on the park ran out Nov 18 and a new one still is being negotiated A park administration official then told the players that since the association has leased the park for the June 26 all-star game, they also should be provided with a practice field The CFL decision to refuse veterans the use of fields or equipment has cast a cloud over the all-star game Stropnik brilliant Lethbnage Royals chalked up an impressive 4-1 victory Sunday in Alberta Soccer Association Cup
