Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 8, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Graham Kelly ANDY CAPP Few surprises in 1974 The 1974 regular CFL season is now history and part of the reccord books. With Edmonton clinching the western crown as expected, the only real surprise in the WFC was the close race for the third and final playoff spot. Usually that one goes for very few points. In fact, last year B.C. squeaked into post season play with 12 points on five wins, nine losses and two ties. Twelve points this year was good for the cellar, occupied as ex- pected by the Calgary Stampeders. So competition was close. The Ottawa Rough Riders managed to beat the four year jinx on Grey Cup Champions by finishing second. Since 1970, the Grey Cup champion has missed the playoffs the following year. Ottawa, while not having the kind of season I thought they were capable of, nonetheless played good football. But it was Marv Levy and the Montreal Alouettes who dominated the conference placing six points ahead of the second place finisher. Not only was the point spread significant, but consider that Montreal beat Ottawa rather handily in three out of four attempts. Unless something totally unexpected happens. Montreal should be playing in the Grey Cup game on Nov. 24. The Toronto Argonauts deserve a lot of credit for their fine season. Missing the playoffs by one point, the Scullers went out kicking and screaming with a fine fourth quarter comeback against Hamilton in Steeltown last Sunday. They managed to close the gap to two points. But Interim Coach Joe Moss and his unfortunate predesessor John Rauch made no fewer than 18 changes in the line up. To be a contender to the final minute of regular season play is tribute indeed to some fine coaching. General Manager John Barrow and the Toronto Board of Directors have no right to expect any better. If they think untried rookie coach Russ Jackson can do any better, they had better think again. Jackson will likely have the Double Blue in the playoffs next year, but largely due to the fine foundation laid by Rauch and Moss. If any big change in coaching comes about in the Eastern Conference, it will likely be in Hamilton. General Manager Ralph Sazio was quoted as saying that it was his fault the Ti Cats weren't doing better. He suggested that he had succumbed to fan pressure to provide exciting offence with a passing game. That is why he hired Jerry Williams, and traded Chuck Ealey for Don Jonas. The Tabbies have just not been very impressive. Watch for Jerry Williams to get fired sometime next week, un- less they upset Ottawa in the sudden death, semi final. For the first time in three years, I managed to pick the Western finish correctly. That doesn't make me a genius or even very smart. Football is a crazy, unpredictable game. When a guy is wrong in his prognostications, he shouldn't be dismissed as a dope. And, as I said, don't think a guy is any kind of expert if he gets it right once in a while. In 1972 and had trouble with Winnipeg. In picked the Bombers fourth, with Calgary, the then defending Grey Cup Champions, first. It ended up the other way around, with Mack Herron and Jim Thorpe leading the Big Blue to a first place finish. Last year, I thought that Spavital and company would have sufficient defensive strength left to finish third. They ended up dead last. For 1974, they had the decency to finish where I pick- ed them, out of the play offs in fourth spot. Edmonton played rather inconsistently most of the year on offence. That was because they lacked a deep threat due to the absence of George McGowan. However, McGowan is back in town in mid season form, showing all and sundry why he won the Schenley Award last year. Edmonton will be ready for the Western Final on Nov. 17, and unless they come up flat, should be the other finalist in Vancouver near the end of the month. Although the Calgary Stampeders finished out of it, they began to show signs of real life toward the end of the season by winning three of their last four games, and knocking Winnipeg nf the playoffs to boot Head Coach Jim Wood, who has to rate as Coach of the Year in the nice guy department, if not otherwise, brought in some exciting new performers to enter- tain the fans at beautiful McMahon Stadium. Willie Burden picked up over 500 yards in five games. Larry. Gates and Ozell Collier should be around for many years to come in the Stamp defensive backfield. Octavius Morgan might be the answer at middle linebacker. Rookie Cyril McFall had a 60 per cent fieldgoal average with many of those three pointers coming from beyond the 40 yard line. Rookie pivot Joe Pisarcik will be a star in this league. Ac- cording to the coaches. Peter Liske had no confidence in the running game, Joe has. Jim Wood pointed out that Liske refused under any circumstances to throw the deep out pattern. With Pisarcik more than willing to do that, opposing defenses must now cover all the field, all of the time. The Stampeders made an excellent move in trading Liske, although I doubt if either Karl Douglas or Henry Sovio will ever see much action. Calgary got excellent service from Harold Holton and Gary Murdock on the offensive line. Rookie assistant coach Joe Tiller did a fine job in molding that unit for both the run and pass protection. Calgary needs a tight end, if Robert Frazier doesn't come back from his injury. They need a middle linebacker, a defensive back, another running back and a defensive tackle. If they get the running back and tackle. Calgary could make things very interesting next season. Naturally they want to represent the West in the first Grey Cup ever played in Calgary They just might be able to make that much progress. At any rate, the Stampeders are finally on the right track. The B.C. Lions looked like world beaters before Thanksgiv- ing weekend. At that point in time, they were 8-4. tied with Ed- monton and in an excellent position to make a run for first place They then proceeded to lose their remaining four games to finish with an 8-8 record.

Marshall collected 17 of 24 possible first-place votes to outscore team-mate Andy Messersmith, 96 points to 66, and become the first relief pitcher in history to win the coveted prize. The only other reliever to win a major award from the Baseball Writers Association of America was Jim Konstan- ty, who was the NL's most valuable player during the Whiz Kid days of the Philadelphia Phillies in 1950. The Dodgers took three of the first four places as Atlan- ta's Phil Niekro finished third with 15 points and Don Sutton of Los Angeles was fourth with 12. Messersmith, along with Ntekro the only 20 game win- ners in the NL this year, re- ceived five first-place votes. Niekro and Sutton had one each. Pitchers from the NL champion Dodgers thus gain- ed 23 of the 24 first-place votes. The remainder of the field included Al Hrabosky of St. Louis with nine points; Cincin- nati's Jack Billingham, eight; Cincinnati's Don Gullett, fivp; Clay Carroll of Cincinnati, two: and Pittsburgh's Dave Giusti, Buzz Capra of Atlanta, and Lynn McGlothen of St. Louis, all one. A total of 24 writers voted, two from each NL city, and the point total was decided on a basis of five for first place, three for second and one for third.

RED DEER (CP) Ryan Wecker, a 20 year old centre in his third season with Drumheller Falcons, has Detective says witness not certain JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) A detective accused of coercing two witnesses into implicating Rubin Hurricane Carter in a 1966 triple homicide said today that 36 hours after the shootings one of the witnesses recanted his identification of the former boxer. Lieut Det. Vincent DeSimone, the chief investigator on the case that resulted in the convictions of Carter and former sparring partner John Artis, testified that Alfred Bello "stated a few times" when shown a photograph of Carter that "it looked like him and that it was his car." "But then he would recant. He wasn't DeSimone testified. Carter and Artis were sentenced to life prison terms. DeSimone was asked if he informed Vincent Hull, the prosecutor at the trial, of Bello's uncertain identifica- tion of Carter. "If you're asking me if I told Hull that Bello said 'Yes it was Carter, no it wasn't Carter, yes it the answer is no." DeSimone testified The state's key witnesses at the 1967 trial, Arthur Bradley and Bello, testified last week at the evidentiary hearing before Superior Court Judge Samuel A. Larner that they lied at the trial in return for leniency in pending criminal matters. Under cross examination today, DeSimone acknowledg- ed that he followed up on his promise to Bradley that authorities in other counties would be told of his co operation. regained the all time scoring lead in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Wecker trailed the all time leader, Terry Wittchen of Red Deer Rustlers, by nine points at the start of the season, but statistics released Tuesday show he has earned 28 points this season to push his career totals to 149 goals and 121 assists for 270 points Wittchen. sidelined so far this season with an injury, has 261 points in three seasons.
