NEW YORK (CP) A soci- ology professor from Victoria said' today the playing posi- tions anil salaries which Cann- dian players receive in the Canadian Football League make them the ''whire nig- gers" of professional spurt. In a speech prepared for de- livery to a symposium on sport, man and contemporary society at Queen's college of New York Cily University, Donald Ball, an associate pro- fessor at the University of Victoria, said Canadians suf- fer from discrimination or at least benign neglect, in the CFL. Ball adopted the "white nig- ger" lable from Quebec writer Pierre Vallicres, used it in reference to alleged ciis- criminatory treatment French-Canadians receive at the hands of the English in Quebec, He said Canadians tend to be excluded from the more re- warding and desirable posi- tions and receive lower sala- ries than imports. He backed this up with statistical charts in his paper "Ascription and position: n comparative anal- ysis of 'stacking' in profes- sional football." Ball defined "stacking" in sports as the assignment of a player to a certain playing position or an achieved status on the basis of an ascribed status. In other words, some players are favored over others for certain positions by reason oE race or national origin. BLACKS LEFT OUT Ball said evidence of this can been seen in the fact that black players are virtually ex- cluded from central positions in professional football in Can- ada and the U.S. The sociology professor ca- tegorized central positions as centre, quarterback and guards; and on defence, line- backers. He provided charts showing blacks stacked heav- ily at non-central positions in U.S. and Canadian profes- sional football. Unlike the U.S. version, Canadain football has another factor in deciding positions, that of national origin.
