Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 3, 1973 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Graham Kelly Tex Maule, football writer for Sports Illustrated magazine has accused the National Football League of playing ho-hum football. Although the redoubtable Mr. Maule sometimes lets his bias interfere with his judgement, in this case he may have a point. Because Tex has picked the Dallas Cowboys to win the NFL title every year since they entered the league, you might think his comments are suspect. But it is my own per- sonal bias that much NFL football is ho-hum, heavily laced with tedium. Maule attributes this sad turn of events to perfection. He says that defenses have become so sophisticated below the line, that we now have the situation of the irresistable force meeting the immovable object. I like to think that Canadian football is The weekend past supplies ample evidence to make a case The Hamilton Tiger- Cats came into McMahon Stadium on a blustery, freez- ing day. surged into a 31-12 lead, and then, quick as a flash, turned into pussy cats Calgary surged back, coming within a whisker of victory. The fact that they failed to turn the tables on the Tabbies was due to their considerable talents at making mistakes. However, this time the ul- timately lateil mistake was made by none other than the chief of the Cowboy brain trust, head coach Jimmy Dun- can. Before you Calgary fans get the rope, or tar and feathers and head down No. 2 highway to visit with Bwana Jim. rcmembei two things In the first place traffic is organized so poorly in and around Calgary that you are not likely to get there anyway. And secondly, keep in mind the dis- mal season the Stampeders went through last year. Everyone else on the club has made a big mistake, why shouldn't Jim Duncan be en- titled to one'' His mistake was a lulu. With Why did he do it? No one in the press corps was brave enough to venture into the dressing room alone after the game. Your fearless reporte; decided to take the more courageous route and brave Calgary traffic by heading for home. But I suspect poor Jim got mixed up on that second last play I'm sure that he thought the clock wouldn't .start until the ball was snapped which would, of course, be the case on either a pass play or penalty To say the plus fans who braved a bitterly cold day to watch the contest were furious would be an under- statement. If Calgary misses the playoffs due to being one game behind, the fans will surely blame Coach Duncan. Probably football fans in the foothills city will be talking about that play for sometime to come But Jim Duncan was not alone in snatching defeat from the jaws of possible vic- tory. In the fourth quarter Jim Silye pitched out to John Senst who fumbled away the ball deep in their own end. Touchdown, Hamilton At least six Calgary defenders had a good shot at Chuck Ealey when he ran 69 yards for a major Letting the Tiger- Cats off the hook could prove very expensive as far as the playoffs are concerned. Calgary must play Montreal and Toronto this weekend, the Argos on Saturday, and the A Is on Monday. They then return home against Ottawa, go to Regina, and then play Edmonton. I think there is an excellent chance they will lose lour of those five, and maybe all of them. If Winnipeg beats Hamilton tonight. I would say that Winnipeg will likely come from the cellar to third spot, and push the Stampeders out Thus, the loss to Hamilton could be serious indeed. As far as first place is concerned. Edmonton has momentum go- ing for them now. I suspect that Saskatchewan may just hcive let first place slip out of thi'ii gusp Bowling Scores HOLIDAY BOWL COMMERCIAL MENS Rorn.o B.r'sy 333 Ken Malcomson 3M Jack Smeed ?SO (704) Bruce McKillop 295 (756) San Girnrdi 370 (805) Rudy Van Ryn 2n1 Ehas Sawilla 313 John Rempel 372 (830) Bob Costanzo 332 (832) Ralph Guzzi 328 (722) H C Brown 306 AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC Torn Shaw 200 Darrell Black 250 (665) Esther Dick 216 Karlyn Spitzer 246 Ann Fredrick 238 Frank Donato 228, Flora Donate 200 Ray Sinclair 197 Kim Chrislenson Larry Barton 229 LADIES COFFEE LEAGUE Grace Hill 235 Gailya Pedersen ?17 Mary Potvin 250 Marge fu'cLauqhlin 200 Isabella Nome 205.

But after watching many gridiron contests over the last few months I have to conclude that a new dimen- sion for interest has been add- ed to the Canadian game the error. No one can accuse Canadian football of being ho-hum due to perfection. In fact, errors have become an increasingly important part of the game. Of course, they are still an im- portant part ol I! S. pro loot- ball as well, what with the elfect that turn-overs have in deciding the outcome of an important contest But Cana- dian football has demonstrated that in the error department, our worthies of the professional football wars will take a back seat to no one. eighteen seconds showing on the clock, and with a first down around the 30-yard line, Pete Liske moved back to pass. At least, I think he did. He was hit so fast, and driven back 10 yards, that is was hard to tell xvhat was happening. That xvas the first mistake. Liske should have been stay- ing right behind the line plann- ing to run a quarterback sneak, or handing the ball off to a back But passing7 No way As Darrell Royal of Tex- as said, "When you throw a pass three things can happen: Complete, incomplete or intercepted. Two aren't good." Liske was guilty of try- ing to put the ball into the air at a time when ball control was essential. However, the Philadelphia Eagle castoff knew what to do with 11 seconds remaining. With a strong wind at his back, Larry Robinson, a very consistent kicker, would have had a better than even chance from 47 yards on a field-goal try. Larry came on to the field of play but was called back by the head coach. The Stampeders then proceeded to run out the clock That has to qualify as the bonehead play of the year. This started it Tim O'Donnell of the Pass Red Devils (dark jersey) dumped Lethbridge Longhorn goalie Larry Wanagas on this play Tuesday night in Alberta Junior Hockey League action. The play set the stage for an evening of 50 penalties including 11 game miscon- ducts. See page 23. am TILL 9 P.M.

Bulgaria (AP> The International Olympic Committee (IOC) laces a dillerent type ol problem at the 10th Olympic Congress today. In the first two days ol the congress, speakers have call- ed tor reforms in running the Games with sports federations challenging the supreme authority of the IOC. Willie Daume. an IOC vice- president from West Ger- many, is scheduled to bring the latest challenge to the IOC in one ol three major addresses today. Daume said he would suggest that women be chosen as members of the IOC. whose memership is old. male and heavily weighted with royal and noble titles. "I'm sure the IOC will accept mv suggestion." Daume said He said it is like- ly that most of the several vacancies in the 74-member IOC will be filled at a meeting in Vienna next year, but that one or two may be chosen at an IOC session here following the congress Former Olympic skier Suzy Chatlee, member of the United States Olympic Com- mittee, said trie Olympic movement needs the humanism women members would bring to the IOC. CAMPAIGNS PRIVATELY She is at the congress pri- vately as a campaigner for athletes' rights, more representation for athletes and a change in the eligibility rules More important support came from Lord Killanm. IOC president, who in his opening speech said there should be no discrimination against women in Olympic bodies "indeed in the International Olympic Committee." Nadejda Lekarska. former horsewoman and long time member of the Bulgarian Olympic Committee, said the barring of women is "un- natural and clearly retrograde sign of weakness in the Olympic movement." Mrs. Lekarska has been mentioned as a possible future IOC candidate After the second day of the congress, the Russians held a news conference on their plans for holding the 1980 Summer ran into some hostile questions. Reporters asked about alleged maltreatment of Israeli athletes and exclusion ol Jewish spectators at the World University Games at Moscow last August "We had nothing to do with any incidents." said Sergei I'dUov. d top Soviet sports of- ficial and member ol the Rus- sian Olympic Committee.
