The Argos need only two more victories or two Hamilton Tiger-Cat losses before laying daim to their first Eastern Football Conference season title in 11 years. The Stampeclers have a more arduous task in trying to wrap up the western title. With four games to play, they need three victories or a like combination of Saskatchewan losses to put on the finishing touches.

"When Jack got his intercep- tion, we had a chance to make it either 14-14 or 14-10 at half- said Madden. "It felt good going into the locker room 14-10. That made it a different football game.

"I'll be damned if J'm going to have anything to do with contributing to the league president added, HAD OPPOSITION When the new slops to de- escalate free-for-alls were en- acted this year, some of the hard-boiled traditionalists out of sorts. Regulation 54 is the strong- est anti-fighting measure the league has come up so far. Tt stipulates that a third player interferes in any way during a fight two players, he is suspended for the game and fined Also, the first player to leave the team bench in a battle costs his team two-minute minor penalties, is suspended for the game and fined If a goalie leaves his crease during a scrap, he is tagged with a two-minute penalty and a fine. And referees are taking pains to make sure that the new rule is not overlooked, as some rules have been in the past. Two men were banished in the first two exhibition games last month, a move which prompted complaints by club officials to the referee-in- cliicf's office. They were told the rule would stick. Rob Plager of SI. Louis Blues. Gary Hart of Detroit Red Wings, Dale Holfe of New York Rangers, Frank Mahov- lich of Montreal Canadiens, Harry Howell of Los Angeles Kings and Boston Bruins' Bobby Orr and Dallas Smith have all felt the force of the new ruling for their parts in exhibition game melees.

"There arc about 10 people in the league who are noto- rious for standing on the fringe of a fight and pushing linesmen as if they wanted to get into the he said. ''We're not going to put up with that any some- body wants to fight now he'll have lo put his fist where his mouth is." Tlie NHL president said he has received many letters from policemen, parents, teachers and peewee league coaches complaining that younger players, in trying to emulate their NHL heroes, could no longer play hockey without senseless fighting. One ex-policeman and league bad guy, John Fergu- son, who retired this year, is happy wiUi Hie new regula- tion. It should work againsl teams like he said. "I've often squared off against one and tie next thing you know you're fighting five or six of them.
