Then they reverted to tho form that can now conceivably label them the worst team in the Canadian Football League when ttiey blew an 8-0 lead and fell 23-9 to British Columbia Lions. The interlocking game with the Western Football Confer- ence tailenclers did little to bol- ster Toronto playoff hopes. It left the Eastern Conference team with a 1-7 mark and four points beliind third-place Mon- treal Alouetttes in the standings. The Als, however, have a game in hand.

'GOODBYE LEO' The teams left the field to a chant from the sellout crowd of more than singing "Goodbye, Leo, goodbye." Bui the strains didn't appear to up- set Toronto coach Leo CahiU. "As long as their singing Goodbye Leo, they're not oul robbing he said in post-game interview. It was increasingly evidenl during the game, however, that the Toronto coach was upset as the Argos committed five turn- overs and the Lions behind the steady direction o quarterback Don Moorhead who took over from Don Bunce after the hall with B.C. trailing ft-6. Moorehead's sharp passing, a facet of his game that had been suspect, and selection of plays kept the Argos off balance. Limited to two field goals by Ted Gerela in the first half, the Lions, behind Moorehead, struck with sudden savagery, a 72 yard touchdown toss to Jim Yourg in the third quarter The major score was signifi cant of the numerous Arg bumbles that made the win tha much easier for the west coas club. Previous to the touchdown score a Toronto player hac been caught offside on a pun formation with the Lions in third-and-five situation. BRITISH COLUMBIA 23, TORONTO B.C.

First Year Pee Wees ONLY-Mass Practice at Henderson, Sunday, Sept. 24 ID 8 p.m. Ulhbridge Minor Hockey Association Hockey fans not stupid OTTAWA (CP) The Can- ada-Russia hockey series and continued expansion of the Na. tional Hockey League are ex peeted to take a toll of fans throughout the league, a hockey veteran suggested Wednesday night. After watching Pittsburgh Penguins trounce Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 in a listless pre-sca son exhibition before fewer than 500 Tans in the Civic Centre Jack Evans, scoui for Detroit Red Wings, said: "There's a lot of kids ou there who should never have had the chance to play in an NHL exhibition. But that's wha expansion has done to the game. "The product as presented is a shadow of it: former self." And, he added: "I'm convinced attendanci throughout the league will bi down this season. The Canada Russia series has seen to this. FANS NOT STUPID "Fans realize now just wha they are missing and they may be gullible, hut they arc no stupid. "They're footing the bill, an believe me they are fed up wit being short-changed." The attendance at the Iw pro-season Philadelphia game here Tuesday and Wedncsda; appeared to bear this out. Last season the junior Ottaw; 67s pulled an average in execs of fans a game into th Centre, while in previous sea sons NHL exhibitions here havi been near sellouts. Tuesday there were fan announced as being at th game, while Wednesday nigh the crowd was the smallest ii memory for any kind of hocke; in the arena.
