Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRI0GB HERAID Saturday, Novembor 11, 1970 Grout) necking National League team franchise bid comes from Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) A group n[ unidentified businessmen has made a bid for a National Hockey League franchise for Edmonton by 1973. Written application has been submitted to NHL president Clarence Campbell and William Wirtz of Chicago, chairman of the league's board of directors, William D. Hunter announced Friday. Hunter, general manager of Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Canada Hockey League, said he was making Uie announcement on behalf of group of associates with "finan- cial resources and backgrounds which 1 am positive mil make Uem acceptable to the gover- nors of the NHL." Tho application asks for the franchise upon completion of a suitable arena. The biggest arena now avail- able for hockey is Edmonton Gardens, home of the Oil Kings, which has a seating capacity of about 7'.000. But Edmonton rate- payers will vote Wednesday on a S32.5 million covered centre which will include a football field, hockey rink and trade and convention areas. A which Hunter is a residents to vote for the centre, Omniplcx, says it is large enough tor an NHL The football field would bo converted to a hockey rink by moving seats on traeks, provid- ing seating for Such a capacity would be the biggest in the NHL. Chicago now is the biggest with Asked whether the group would still be interested is a franchise if Omniplex is turned down by the voters, Hunter said lie could not comment because he wouldn't want to do anything which might hurt chances of an affirmative vote for Uie centre. Names of the associates arc expected to be made public when (he group meets with the governors possibly later this winter, said Hunter. He also said that the group wants the franchise either through expansion or purchase of a team now operating, such as the financially-troubled Pitts- burgh Penguins. Campbell said in a telephone interview it will be up to the Key encounters in NFL Sunday By MIKE RATTIER Associated Press Sports Writer Are Kansas City's Super Bow] champion Chiefs ready to roll? Can George Blanda of Oaklanc Raiders do it again? Will Green Bay be able to slow Minnesota down? Are Los Angeles Rams out of it? How tough is San Francisco? Some, or all, of those ques- tions will be answered Sunday on a 12-garne National Football League program highlighted by five key Louis Car- dinals at Kansas City. S'an Oiego Chargers at Oakland, Green Bay Packers at Minne- sota Vikings, Los Angeles at At- lanta Falcons and San Fran- cisco '49ers at Detroit Lions. The remainder of the schedule shows Houston Oilers at Cleve- 1 a n d Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins, Baltimore Colts at Miami Dolpldiis, Denver Bron- cos at New Orleans Saints, Bos- ton Patriots at New York Jets and Buffalo Bisons at Chicago Bears. New York Giants are at Phil- adelphia Eagles In a Monday night game. The Giants, running one game behind SI. Loins in the National Conference East, will probably spend Sunday watching Cardi- nals and CWefs tangle. GAME IMPORTANT It will have strong bearing on the NFC Eastern, race as well as the three-team battle for hon- ers in the American Conference West where Oakland shows a 5- 2-2 record, Kansas City 5-3-1 and Saa Diego 4-3-2. And it will provide 211 opportunity to ana- lyse the Chiefs' offence against a legitimate title contender. The duets, who have sput- tered on offence this season, whipped Pittsburgh 31-14 last week as Len -Dawsou completed 19 of 24 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns while guiding a unit thai seemed to be execul. ng with precision. But the Car- dinals, with three straight shut- outs, will provide a stiffer test. At the same time, the St. ouis offence, led by running >ack M a c A r t h u r Lane and ranked No. 1 in the NFC, will est a Kansas City defensive unit ranked No. lln the AFC. hoard of governors to decide. The next expansion likely will be about 1973-74 and ideally would increase the league to 18 learns in three divisions in North America and a three- team division in Europe. This would create four new North American franchises. Campbell also said he opposed a combination arena for Buf- falo. "However, I understand that the Edmonton proposal is differ- ent than the Buffalo plan and I would have to study it in detail before slating a definite opin- He said Ills main objection to the Buffalo proposal was sight- lines of less than 30 degrees. Omniplcx architect Maurice Sunderland has said Edmon- ton's building would have sight lines better than 30 degrees "and better than those of Van. couver's Pacific Coliseum." Buffalo and Vancouver paid million each to get into the league this year but Charles 0 Finley bought the Oakland fran- chise for million. IS MY CAR READY FOR WINTER?
