Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Nmmbcr 197J THE LETHMIDOI HHUID Odds favor host club Sunday Tiger-Cats easy victors over Roughies four times REGINA (CP) Hamilton Tiger-Cats are undefeated in four Grey Cup appearances in which Saskatchewan Rough- riders were the opposition. In fact, the WFC 'Riders have never really been close on the Scoreboard against Hamilton. They lost 30-0 in 1928, 14-3 in 1929, 25-6 in 1932 and 24-1 in 1967. Another statistic favoring the Ticats is 'their history of Grey Cup competition spanning 21 games in which they were vic- forious 12 times. The 'Riders, on the other hanrt, are playing their 12th fi- nal and have won only once. In the West this year, the 'Riders appeared to bo on the skids. For the first time in six years it looked as though they would miss the western final. Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey TVEWSMEN have only scraped the tip of the iceberg when it comes to probing the intense bitterness within the Boston Bruins front office that grew in the middle of last Summer, and is close to demoralizing the Stanley Cup cham- pions. One bloc within the Boston hierarchy believes it was a dreadful mistake allowing Bobby On- to fly to Europe when he might have been better off strengthening his gimpy knee under the doctor's Argus eye in Boston, last September. Other insiders insist that Orr's European Jaunt did him absolutely no and probably some and deceived a lot of people into thinking that the super defenceman was in a lot better shape than actually was the case. On- has, they say, been victimized by bad advice. That, however, is only a portion of the Bruins' problem. The hiring of Harry Sinden, as Managing Director, contrary to the Beantown propaganda reports, has not been widely hail- ed by the Boston players; especially big right wing Ken Hodge. When Sinden was the Bruins coach in 1969 and not an especially good one at that he and Hodge had a serious clash which resulted in Sinden's disenchantment with the former St. Catherines junior ace. Apparently the bitterness lingered on. How else can one explain Sinden's keeping Hodge off Team Canada, last Summer, thereby disrupting the high-scor- ing Hodge-Phil Esposito-Wayne Cashman line? But here's how Harry was deked: Sometime in mid-sum- mer, just before Hodge signed his Bruins contract, Ken was tipped off that Sinden might return to the Bruins. If that were to be the case, Hodge realized, the chances were good that Sinden eventually would try to trade him. Hodge, who has a love of Boston as a city, and does more free charity work than any 10 Bruins put together, did not want to leave the Hub. Using the World Hockey Asso- ciation's lures as a wedge, he signed a no cut, no-trade con- tract with the Bruins. Thus, Ken can only be dealt away now with his consent. Meanwhile, the Bruins are losing prestige by the arena- ful. Their failure to do what the New York Rangers did' and pay high salaries to keep stars such as Gerry Cheevers, Derek Sanderson and Johnny McKenzie has offended the easily- Insulted Bruins' fans. Add to that the fact venerable manager Mitt Schmidt has virtually been cast aside by the front office now that Sinden has taken over. Schmidt, a Hall of Famer, remains an in- stitution in Boston. Sinden is a Harry-Come-Lately who hap- pened to inherit a championship team which Schmidt had built. Then Sinden abruptly walked out on them. The Beantown fans remain on Schmidt's side as do plenty of Bruins' skaters. Re- sult: more hate than happiness at Boston Garden, in 1972-73. If Black Hawks right wing Cliff Koroll is wondering wheth- er he has any friends left on the Chicago team, you couldn't blame him a bit. During a recent game against the Rangers at New York, Koroll took a swipe at goalie Gilles Villemure. Rangers de- fenseman Curt Bennett rushed Koroll and launched an in- cessant and unmerciful beating, cutting Koroll about the faca and whacking him to the ice in a veritable pulp. White all this was going on, Cliff's Chicago teammates etood by, never even attempting to rescue their pal. "I lost all respect for the Black Hawks after I saw says Hall of Famer Bill Chadwick, who was an NHL referee for 16 years. "No matter what the rules say, somebody on that team should have helped Koroll." Oddly enough, the only one who seems to disagree is Chicago coach Billy Reay. His position is that nobody has a right to urge players to break the rules even if it means rescuing a buddy. Which, if nothing else, if Billy is serious, is good for laughs. But Reay does little laughing these days. He is particu- larly bitter about the Rangers who last summer retained their superstars while the Hawks lost Bobby Hull to the WHA. "If the Rangers don't win the East Division by 15 asserted Reay, at Madison Square Garden, between sips from a can of soda pop, "they ought to give back half their salaries." When a writer sarcastically suggested that the Black Hawks should clinch first in the West Division by Christmas, Reay snapped: "Another crack like that and I'll throw fliis can in your face." Angels still fishing HONOLULU (AP) After hooking five players in the big- gest deal thus far at the trade- happy winter baseball meet- ings, general manager Harry Dalton of California Angels an- nounced that he was still fish- tag. Just because we made this deal, it doesn't mean that we have everything we said Dalton. "We still have to fill a few more positions. And we can still use more hitting." The Angels acquired slugger Frank Robinson from Los Ange- les Dodgers Tuesday in a seven- player deal that kept trading activity here at a roller coaster pace. The seventh deal of the young meetings sent Robinson, pitch- ers Bill Singer and Mike Strah- ler and infielders Bobby Valen- tine and Billy Grabarkewitz from Los Angeles to California for pitcher Andy Messersmith and third baseman Ken McMullen. Dalton's deal was the seventh fashioned since Saturday and eclipsed in manpower a six- player trade by the New York Yankees that highlighted Mon- day's frantic activity. A total of 23 players have changed uni- forms since the free-wheeling general managers got things started Saturday. And, according to Dalton, there's more dealing in store before the 71st annual affair locks up this weekend. Tuesday's trade reunites Dal- ton with Robinson, an all-Star outfielder he pried loose from Cincinnati Reds when Dalton was director of player person- nel at Baltimore. "I've been close to Robinson for a long said Dalton. "Anytime a man takes you to four World Series, you've got to be close to him. Sure, he's 37 years old and he's not the same player he was five years ago. But he's still a superstar." Robinson had only 19 home runs and 59 runs batted in and a .251 batting average last year. However, that didn't deter the Angels from picking up his salary, one of the highest in baseball. They finished In third place because they were unable to play consistent football. They showed periods of greatness, at one time winning five in a row. Two of their veterans are Ron Lancaster, 33, and George Reed, 32, a combination that has been the sparkplug of Sas- katchewan's offence for years. Despite the disappointing regular season, Reed gained more than yards rushing for his eighth consecutive year and Lancaster continued to re- write the record book in liter- ally every passing category. 'Riders entered the season with mostly a stand-pat club. The only apparent weakness was in the defensive backfield. Tom Campana of Ohio State was recruited to fill a defensive back position but he soon won a spot on offence. His WFC rooHe-of-the-year nomination allests to his performance. Regular comerback Gig Perez was lost in the first league game and an emergency call went out from coach Dave Skrien for two defensive backs. Roy Robinson, a 1971 Calgary Stampeder cut, and Lewis Cook, formerly of Montreal Alouettes, answered and they're still being heard from. STARS INJURED As the season progressed, more misfortune struck when Lancaster and Reed both suf- fered rib injuries near the mid- way mark. Other more serious injuries were to veteran defensive tackle Ed McQuarters and tight end Nolan Bailey. Rock Per- doni, a much-traveled tackle, has filled in adequately for McQuarters and Mr. Versatil- ity, Alan Ford, has been a big asset at tight end. The other important change in the Rider and a surprising move to many fans was the release of middle line- backer Wally Dempsey. He was chopped to make room for Steve Svitak, who had ex- perience with several NFL clubs. A popular theory circulating in these parts is that a number of 'Rider veterans are looking at Sunday's Grey Cup in Ham- ilton as the last hurrah. Feel- ings such as those could pro- duce extra effort in the quest for the second Grey Cup In the club's long history. So says Johnny Weismuller Thompson earns teachers honors Donald Thompson and his Picture Butte foursome came away wilh top prize in the third annual University of Let h- bridge Teachers bonspiel.

Statistics released Tuesday by the league show Nelson picked up 10 points in three games last week to increase his season tot- al to 52, five more than team- mate Ryan Wecker. Included in Nelson's total are 28 goals, tops in the league, and Wecker is the top play- maker with 25 assists. Red Deer Rustlers' captain Reg Knell was third with 4-3 points, four ahead of Gary Bern- bridge of Drumheller. Don East- colt of Calgary Canucks was fifth with 35 points, one more than injured Red Deer star Ter- ry Wittchen who has missed the last eight games with an eye injury. Don Stephenson of Red Deer maintained his goaltending lead by lowering his average to 3.16. Mike McCollam of the Pass Red Devils was a distant sec- ond at 4.50. Meanwhile In Blalrmore, Cal- gary Canucks played 07 min- utes and 10 seconds of hockey Tuesday night and came up with two victories over the Pass Red Devils in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. The teams completed seven minutes and 10 seconds remain- ing In a game that was called Oct. 24 when a power failure blacked out the arena. Derek Haas and Lyle Murray each scored a goal for the Pass, but the Red Devils couldn't over- come the Calgary lead of 7-0 and took a 7-2 loss. In the other game, Calgary emerged with an 8-1 victory after taking period leads of 2-0 and 4-1. Don Eastcott and Ian Mc- Phee led Canucks with two goals each, with single goals going to Brian Miller, Roger Lamereaux, Dean McPhee end Mark Lomenda. Wayne Kiebs got tiie lone Bla'rmore goal. Calgary outshot the pass 31 to 29 and took sis of tho 10 minor penalties and a miscon- duct. Each team was assessed a major penalty. SCORING LEADERS Nelson, Drumheller Wecker, Drumheller Kinch.
