Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 Lfcl HSHiUUE ritfiALD September 3, 1974 Jonas Ealey switch in CFL trade Monday WINNIPEG (CP) Win- nipeg Blue Bombers of the Western Football Conference have confirmed the trading of quarterback Don to Hamilton Tigei Cat: tuo Eastei n Conference UIUCK Ealey Bomber general manager Earl Lunsford said this morn- ing the trade was finalized after Monday night games in which Winnipeg beat Saskatchewan 20-J8 and Hamilton rallied to beat Ot tawa 11-10 It makes it a lot tougher after winning three st.aight games and Don s playing so well Lunsford said And Ealey was picked plajei-of- the-game which makes it tough for both sides But once you make up y our mind that that's the right decision with a lot of thinking about it examining what you re doing and what you re trying to do you have to follow thiough Aith it regardless of the conse- quences Jonas, 35 had sparked the Bombers to three straight comeback victories after the club started the season by los- ing its first three games Lunsford said the Bombers felt that, in our situation, with a new coach trying to do certain things it was taking a little time to get things crank- ed up, although they were go- ing well in the last three games But this was a chance to get a young quarterback already proven in the CFL who plays more our style of offence Ealey's a roll-Out quarterback who likes to run with the ball and utilize all his backs "But. lets face it, both clubs are getting excellent quar- terbacks It's a matter of evaluating what each club needs Jonas six feet 200 pounds, came to Winnipeg from Toronto Argonauts in 1971 and that year was named the most valuable player in the Cana- dian Football League He also wound up the League's top scorer with 121 points Ealey, 24 had a brilliant rookie season in 1972 when he led the Tiger Cats to victory in the Grey Cup But this year he has been bothered by hamstr- ing muscle injuries and a sore knee and has had problems keeping his starting job JONAS SHOCKED Jonas when informed of the trade, said he "really couldn't believe it As long as I've been in Winnipeg I ve wanted to stay here to finish my career here and have my roots here I don't even know the reason why That's the thing that shocks me also If there's a legitimate reason oehnd it I could see it maybe But we start putting everything together and start molding into a real fine football club but that s what happens Jonas said he will probably report to Hamilton however I don t see why I shouldn't, or at least go and talk to them and just see how things work out You never know, I've been traded before and it all work- ed out for the best, so maybe this trade will work for the best again The trade had been in the works for about three weeks but Lunsford denied that ap- parent conflicts between Jonas and the Winnipeg coach staff prompted the action Jonas had made it known publicly that he did not agree with the Bomber coaches call- ing the offensive signals from the sideline, a system that was carried on until early in game five Jonas was then given the go-ahead to call his own plays and he promptly led the club to its come-from- behind win over Calgary Stampeders, the Bombers' se- cond straight triumph 'It's the coach who makes the decision on what players he wants, but that had nothing to do with the Lun- sford said of the conflict "We'd been discussing the trade for the three weeks and often things come along after discussions begin You can be in the progress of talking trade and then things happen and it helps people make up their minds 'People will say 'oh yeah, that's why it happened But Ealey was not happy in Hamilton and we feel he can help us and the trade gives them an ideal drop-back quar- terback which is what they wanted Both clubs are expected to have their new quarterbacks ready for their next games this weekend MUSSO BACK VANCOUVER (CP) Running back Johnny Musso was activated Monday by the British Columbia Lions and will play in their next Cana- dian Football League game here Saturday against Saskatchewan Roughnders Eastern race getting tighter Butterfingers Bobby Thompson

but the Bombers were in third place with a 3-3 record while Utah team receives Calgaiy trailed at 1-6 Winnipeg's victory avenged a 23-13 to the Roughnders earlier this year and marked a solid
