Gabriel already has sur- lassed his 1071 performance to- ah of 20 passes caught for .285 yards and one touchdown. In ight games this season, league statistics show he has caught 25 or 427 yards and three touch- downs, although two of those were scored on fumble rccov Tics.

It was Baker who Ml Edmon- on's first-string pivot Bruce Lcmmerman in the clubs' first ectinr; this year. Lemmer- man suffered a shoulder injury nrl was put on the 30-day in- ured list. 'I've clolheslining quar- erbacks ali my said Baker. "This year, everybody making a big thing out of it. All of a sudden, I'm Godzilla umcd loose." Norm Kimball, Eskimos' gen- eral manager, was incensed with Baker. I'm not complaining about he he said. "I'm complaining about Bak- er. That's the third quarter- back of ours he's put out of a game. We try to run a profes- sional football league and we've got an animal running around and trying to take it away from. itrike. And he did it his At one of the bargaining scs-1 sions, lie appeared in a purple jump suit. "Why are you wearing thai an owner asked. "Why are you wearing white MacKey countered. 'Because I like white the owner replied. "I like this purple MacKey retorted calmly. "Tlwt didn't surprise MacKey said, "because if I wasn't a player, I couldn't re- main as president of the play- ers association." What was surprising was that every N.F.L. team was so well forlified at tight end that he wasn't worth 5100 to inspect. In the N.F.L., you always hear coaches saying, "what we need is more winning ballplayers." Here was an established win- ning ballplayer, who won't be 31 until Sunday, available for and 25 teams ignored him as if he were an unproven rookie. Perhaps not e v ery team, but surely some teams apparently were influenced by MacKey's role wilh the players association. Several months ago, it Is whispered, the Chicago Bears arranged a deal wilh the Colts 'or him. When he was re-elect- ed president of the players as- sociation, the Bears backed out. But a few hours after Waivers cleared, Willie Wood bull i have "You keep letting that go on and you're going to a riot." But whether it was out of re- taliation or plain frustration, Eskimos too coulri be accused of some cheap shots on Rider quarterback Ron Lancaster. On the last play of the game and after the whistle had sounded, Lancaster was hit hard. "I knew it was Lan- caster said. "I knew they'd be after me. They lined up and caiuo from all sides. A guy fried lo get my eye. That's dumb stuff like that. The officials have to stop it." The incident sparked a post- game free-for-all between the players. Dojack said it was a rough and tougli game, and it's hard to second-guess the referees who are much closer to the play than he was. Dojack watched the game from the stands. "If prelty hard to say he (Referee) was lax in his judg- ment. I can't fault their judge- ment at this lime."

(AP Wirepholo) phoned him. Wood, the former Green Bay Packer safctyman, now is an assistant coach of the Chargers were Ilarland Svare, the general manager and head coach, has emerged as the war- den of pro football's Devibi Is- land. In recent weeks, he has welcomed four players unwant- ed by most N.F.L. teams Duane Thomas, Tim Hosso- vich, Dave Costa and now John MacKey. "Willie told me that if I want to play, to call sold MacKey, "and hero 1 am." Ironically, he's a backup tight end again, behind Pettis Norman, the incumbent. But [he MacKey episode might in- fluence the Colts' season just as much. Perhaps significantly, perhaps coincidentally, th e y were upset by the St. lams Cardinals, 10 3, in their open- er. "Joe Thomas was with two expansion teams, the Vikings and the Dolphins, before MacKey said. "Handling kids on an expansion team is differ- ent than handling veterans. And if Carroll Rosenbloom hadn't sold the Colts to buy the Rams, this never would've hap- pened." HAS BEEN HURT But since the strike, his per. formance as a player was limited by a surgical knee and an airing elbow. Tom Mitchell emerged as the Colts' starter at tight end. Several months ago, MacKey asked Don Me- Cafferty, the Colt coach, lo trade Hm. McCafferty assured him a chance to regain his job. But by a week ago Monday, Mitchell was established as the starter. MacKey, although lighter and faster than in the last two seasons, had caught only three passes for 16 yards in three exhibition games. I went to sec McCafferty and told him to trade MacKey explained by tele- phone. "I didn't want to be second string." Several hours later, on his car radio, he heard that the Colls had placed him on their retired list. Joo Thomas, the Colts1 new gener- al manager, contends lhat MacKey threatened lo retire if he wasn't the regular. MacKey contends he never mentioned retirement. "Then on Tuesday, in Thomas's office, he kept asking me about using the word 're- MacKey said. "I asked him if he was playing lawyer, if I was under interrogation." MacKey demanded lhat he be placed on the waiver list. Thomas refused, not wishing to risk losing him for SIOO, The next day, Ed Garvey, the at- torney who is the executive di- rector of the N.F.L. Players Association, spoke to commis- sioner Pete Hozellc and then to Thomas. 'I told tte commissioner that tbe Colts were stashing John by retiring Garvey said. 'Stashing is the word the com- missioner's office always uses when we complain about rules lhat limit player freedom. They (the commissioner's office) tell us that il prevenls teams from stashing players, circumvent- ing the player limit." After what Garvey calls an 'unpleasant convc r s a lion" wilh Thomas, the Colts placed MacKey on waivers. But tho other 25 teams ignored him.
