No one laughing, Davidson sharp By THE CANADIA1M FKtSS They laughed at Gary Davidson twice. But with the brass of the original pro basketball and hockey leagues still eating their condescending words, there were no scofls from the Canadian Football League this week when Davidson an- nounced his next project. Davidson formed American Basketball Association and World Hockey Association, and the impact of both has been staggering, particularly to the bank accounts of the es- tablished leagues. And when he announced this week that a World Football League will be formed within months, the prospect of a bid- ding war for players was the first dark thought to hit the CFL. "Everybody in Canada is looking for a good quarter- back and an attempt to drain off 300 or 400 players would be a tremendous strain." said David Loeb. president of both Ottawa Rough Riders and the CFL. "Top calibre players could go for a lot of money and that could turn it into a monetary war." A bigger worry for Ralph Saxio. general manager ot Hamilton Tiger-Cats. was Da- vidson's announced intention of putting franchises in Toronto and Vancouver. "I'll take my chances in a recruiting war. just as long as they stay out ol Canada Jackie Parker, general manager of British Columbia Lions, said that with the large number ol plavers at the college level "I've always felt there would eventually be another league formed As lor Davidson's proposal, "it sounds like there are some sound business people behind it One CFL man who's not tak- ing any chances is John F, Bassett. a director of Toronto Argonauts. As president of Toronto Toros ol the WHA. he knows enough to take Davidson seriously, and he has put in a bid lor the Toronto franc-hi.se in the new football league. "What he has done with the World Hockey Association is mighty impressive." Bassett said. "The National Football League has said it's not com- ing to Toronto. If any other team comes in I want to make damned sure nobody else gets it Bassett's WHA counterpart in Vancouver. Jim Pattison. has announced he is bidding for right of lirst refusal on the franchises for both Vancouver and Seattle. Wash Sam Bergcr. owner of Mon- treal Alouettes. acknowledged that with a few top-calibre players the new league could make a go of it. recalling: "It was Bobby Hull who gave the World Hockey Association credibility." Davidson said this week that superstar Joe N'amath of New York Jets is "the kind of person we want But despite their respect for Davidson's promotional ability, the CFL brass point out he'll have a tough time.

"I don't know about playing in London, Kngland." Loeb said in Ottawa. "All the players would have lo be im- ports for one thing, and it would be expensive travelling." CFL Commissioner Jake Caudaur agreed there will be "problems in a world-wide league, things like the nine- hour time difference between here and Hawaii." Securing stadiums and TV coverage will also be a problem in areas where the established leagues hold sway Loeb pointed out that most teams have clauses in their leases preventing another pro team from playing in their stadium. He also said veteran teams would get preference when it came to playing nights and TV coverage. (iaudaur said there is "great interest in football." and a new league is possible "at a time like this when so many cities are waiting to get into the (TL and NFL II the new league should move in "then it behooves us to be better than they are." Hut (iaudaur said CFL own- ers, with traditional rivalries as a drawing card, can take some comfort Irom history. "Remember the Continen- tal League had no affect what- soever on the CFL when it [dayed in Canada. People weren't interested in teams Irom Wheeling or Hartford Mets get later hour NKW YORK A P) Neither team has thrown a pitch in anger yet. but New York Mets have won the first administrative skirmish with Cincinnati Reds as the two teams prepare for baseball's National League playoffs which begin Saturday. The Mets received word Thursday that their request for a late afternoon workout at Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium Friday had been approved by National League president Chub Feeney. "The Reds wanted us off the field by 3 p m said general manager Bob Scheffing "They are working out from 3 to 5 on Friday. "But we asked for a later hour because the games there arc starting late." Because of television re- quirements, both league playoff games in Cincinnati will start at 4 p.m Using the field from 1 to 3 wouldn't have been much help for Met fielders testing out shadows and glare. So Scheffing appealed to Feeney and the president ordered the Reds to let the Mets have the field at 5 p m "That's belter." said Scheffing "At least that will be the time that the game will be in progress." Scheffing thinks the workout could be important. "Shadows can cause a prob- lem if it's a bright day." he said. "After all. we haven't been there since the middle ol July." The Mets' general manager was obviously pleased over Feeney's order. It seems like a little thing but a f'lyball mis- judged can mean a ball game and Scheffing figures the late workout has reduced the chances ol something like that happening "Maybe it won'I be a prob- lem." he said. "Bob Howsam iSchcl'fing's opposite number with the Reds i tells me the sun hasn't been out there since Ihe season ended "Yeah, sure.' grunted Mets manager Yogi Berra. taking a breather after pitching batlmg practice in his club's 90-minute workout. "That's what he said. Yog." Scheffing continued "lie said it was cloudy and looked like ram "I hope it rains on them to- said Berra. Then Scheffing gave his manager the news about the time change for Friday's workout.
