Parise was ejected for dis- puting an interference call early in the first period. He protested and Kompalla added a 10-minute misconduct. Play- ers restrained him from attack- ing the referee, who then threw him out of the game. At this point, the Canadian bench threw a sfool, then a metal eliair, on to the ice.

He ilso said it would not be fair because most people who bet can't afford it and, even if they win, that money would ba taxed. Rozelle said the NFL spends every year in making sure there are no suspicions arising from the outcome of the games. He also said legislation to legalize gambling would create a growing population of bettors.
