Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Blazers get paid, boycott called off ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Florida Blazers received back pay Saturday for two of the four weeks owed to them by the World Football League and the players announced a threatened boycott of this week's game with Memphis Southmen was off. "We are in a better frame of mind said quarterback Bob Davis. "This definitely renews our faith in the WFL." The players of the financial- ly troubled club invoked a con- tract clause and turned to the WFL when management miss- ed its payrolls. The players had not been paid in a month. However, when the WFL was slow in meeting its obligations to the players, the team announced a Saturday deadline for at least part of the payroll owed them. They had said if they were not paid for at least two weeks by then they would vote not to play the scheduled game against Memphis on Wednesday.

Finley offer comes too CHICAGO (AP) Oakland pitcher Jim Hunter has turned down the he said owner Charles Finley refused to pay him, the Chicago Sun-Times said Sunday. Last Friday, Hunter said he wanted free agent status after baseball's World Series because Finley failed to pay the final due on Hunter's 1974 contract The newspaper said Finley offered Hunter a che- que Oct 4 before American League president Lee MacPhail. Hunter refused the cheque for the final instalment after consulting a lawyer who had arranged a tax-shelter an- nuity, the newspaper said, because he would have been forced to pay federal income tax on it. Although details of the salary agreement have not been revealed, the newspaper said, Hunter was paid the first in regular bi-weekly in- stalments and the remaining was to be paid directly to an insurance company Finley balked when he learned he would not be able to deduct the second payment as a business expense.

The same with crocodile stories. They tend to grow thin. Foreman stays in town. With the exception of daily road work and trips in the back of a near empty bus to the training centre for work- outs, the champion spends the best part of his time in his hotel suite. The routine is broken when Foreman takes his dog out for a walk or does some sitting in the hotel lobby Foreman doesn't talk about being bored, but Terry Lee, one of his sparring partners, found the time dragging so much that he volunteered to referee in a Zaire basketball league.
