Aikman to Irvin: Let us know if you don’t want to play
IRVING (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have added one All-Pro receiver, but they’re still missing another.
The Cowboys signed free-agent receiver Anthony Miller on Monday, but it was another star wideout, Michael Irvin, who stole the spotlight by pulling another no-show at a team minicamp.
Irvins continued absence is starting to irk some of his teammates.
“It’s discouraging, no question about that,”
quarterback Troy Aikman said Monday when Irvin didn’t appear for a mandatory quarterback
“It comes down to whether he wants to play for us or he doesn’t, lf he wants to, we want him to start working with us. lf he doesn’t want to play, we want to know that too so we can go in another direction.”
Irvin, the Cowboys’ all-time leader in catches and receiving yardage, has given no reason for his absence. He also missed a minicamp last
Head coach Barry Switzer said he was told by team owner Jerry Jones not to expect Irvin.
“It think it disappoints all of us, hut Jerry said not to expect him so we just go about our business,” Switzer said.
Jones acknowledged Monday that Irvin has asked to be traded, but the Cowboys owner insisted that can’t and won’t happen and said he’s confident Irvin w ill he at training camp next month.
The Cowboys will at least have Miller, released earlier Monday by the Denver Broncos for salary cap reasons. Terms of his deal with Dallas were not disclosed.
Miller will serve as the deep threat Dallas missed last season.
“I’m definitely excited," Miller said. “You won’t see too many dual receivers iii the league like me and him (Irvin). This was my first choice. This is a team that has a chance to gel to the top.”
Flyers’ goalie change won’t affect Bowman
Headed to UTSA
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Scotty Bowman has been around hockey long enough to know coaches change goalies for a lot of reasons, and it’s not always based on performance.
That’s why the Detroit Red Wings’ coach wasn’t reading too much into Terry Murray’s decision to bench Ron Hex tai I and start Garth Snow for the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals tonight at the CoreStates C enter.
To be blunt, Hextall gave up one humble goal in a 4-2 loss in Game I on Saturday night. With the Red Wings leading 3-2, he missed a 40-foot shot by Steve Yzerman in the opening minute of the third period.
The mistake killed any chances for a Flyers comeback, Murray said Monday in switching his goalies for the fourth time since the playoffs started.
That mistake was one of many in the opening game for Philadelphia. The other three goals followed miscues by Erie Lindros, Kjell Samuelsson and Paul Coffey, all of

whom are expected to play tonight.
Murray refused to say it was a wake-up call for his team, but it might very well be.
Snow and Hextall have gotten used to playing musical creases this season, and it’s gotten worse in the playoffs, where one mistake seems to result in a change.
Snow started the first nine games ot the playoffs before being replaced for the final game of the Eastern Conference semifinals after a 5-4 overtime loss to Buffalo.
Hextall started and game, but Snow returned two games of the conference finals against the Rangers, being relieved after giving up five goals on IO shots in Game 2.
