Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SULLY SAYS -By Put Sullivan CINCE annual holidays Interrupted my bid for a winning record picking Ihe outcome of Canadian Football League regular season games, I will pick up where I left off anil give you the inside dope on the upcoming playoffs and Schenley Awards. Think nothing of it. After all, at holiday break I was cruising along at an ]1 right-three wrong clip and feel just as certain about things to come now as I did then. First of all, the west should be simple, making it easier for me. Winnipeg Blue Bombers won their first league pennant in a decade and I can't see them rot representing the Western Conference in the Grey Cup classic in Hamilton, Dec. 3. I am fully aware I said Calgary would repeat as Canadian champs but have since revised my thinking just in the knick of time I would say. The Blue Bombers have the ace in the hole so to speak, a bye into the final. This does not assure them of instant success but they bypass the always tough semi-final showdown. No one, in their right minds, wants to play an extra football game at this time of the year unless it is absolutely necessary. Edmonton Eskimos, if for no other reason than the fact they deserve it, will earn the other berth in the final by gelling past Saskatchewan Roughriders in the west semi-final. Eskimos have overcome more injuries in one season than any club I can recall in the past dozen years. That, however, will be as far as the Esks go this season. In the east, I can't sea anyone unseating the Hamilton Tiger-Cals. I am fully aware that Ottawa Roughriders are currently tied with the Ti-Cats atop the standings but let's not kid ourselves the clubs have met three times with Hamilton winning on each occasion. The Eiders will be forced to defeal Monlreal Alou- ettes in the semi-final and then fall victim to 'the Ti-Cats in the east final. Despite (he fact there are still two other clubs in the east, Montreal and Toronto Argonauts, 1 can't give them a second glance. The Als finished with a 4-10 mark while the Argos, with a win over Hamilton Sunday, can also reach the dizzying height of 4-10. Should this happen, the Argos would lose to the Riders in the semi-final because they won two of three meet- ings with the Als. So as I see it, Hamilton and Winnipeg will do battle to see who succeeds Calgary Stampeders as Grey Cup champions and my money is on the Tiger- Cals. Now for Mr. Shen Lee and his awards. I will start wlh the rookie of the year. It is the newest, and this year, the easiest. Chuck Ealey ol the Hamilton Tiger-Cats should be a Khoe-in over Tom Campana of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. It has been a long time since any first year player has elec- trified the nation in the manner Ealey has at the helm of the Ti-Cals. It is unfortunate that Campana has to compete with Ealey this time around. Mack Herron, a keg of dynamite out of the Blue Bomber backfield, should win the most outstanding player award over Carney Henley of the Ti-Cats. The voting should be close with the final nod to go to Herron. And from where I sit, this will be the only award the west will win. John Helton of the Stampeders and Jim Young of B.C. Lions are the west representatives in the line- man of the year and outstanding Canadian categor- ies respectively. Some other time fellows. First of ail Helton is not a better lineman than Jim Stillwagon of the Argos. He has been in years past but not this time. As a matter of fact I was disap- pointed when the selectors bypassed Bill Baker of Saskatchewan. To me he was the best lineman in the country this year. But then, I'm not eligible to vole. And finally Gerry Organ of Ottawa will win the outstanding Canadian honors over Young. I feel this simply because he has been the better ball player. Let's face it, it doesn't hurt to have your team in a battle for the playoffs cither. So there you have it. Herron, Ealey. Stillwagon and Organ in the Shenley awards and Hamilton as Grey Cup champs. You had hotter bnpe I'm wrong.
