New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 13, 1982, New Braunfels, Texas
All-star games will be played
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Despite the strike by the National Football League Players Association, it appears there will be competition involving NFL athletes next Sunday afternoon and Monday night.
A game matching players from the Eastern Divisions of the American and National Conferences is set for Sunday afternoon at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium in Washington, D.C.
It was announced Tuesday at a news conference that a contest involving AFC and NFC Western Division players will be held at the Los Angeles Coliseum the following night.
The contest at the home of the Los Angeles Raiders is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. EDT. Union officials said rosters would be announced today.
“We’re pleased that we’re able to continue playing football,” said former San Francisco 49ers’ defensive back Kermit Alexander, a one-time NFLPA president who is now a union consultant. “This is an alternate means of producing
income for the players.
“We believe this matter (the players strike) will be settled. We will have NFL football, ifs just a matter of when.” Alexander said players who will take part in next Monday night’s game would arrive in Los Angeles Tuesday night and today.
“We’re still in the process of contacting players,” he said. “We’re having no trouble getting players to agree to play.” Alexander would not comment on the identity of the competing players until a roster is announced.
Former Chicago Bears center Mike Pyle will coach the AFC team and ex-St. Louis Cardinals multi-purpose player Johnny Roland will lead the NFC team, it was announced.
Both games will be televised nationally by the Turner Broadcasting System. A spokesman for TBS said the two games have been sold to 90 commercial television stations around the country and “we’re hopeful of having over IOO by Friday,
giving us 85 to 90 percent coverage of the United States.”
Sheldon Saltman, President of Kragen-Saltman Sports Management, Inc., of Los Angeles, said that players taking part would be covered by Lloyd’s of London. The players will be insured for short-term and career-ending injuries, he said.
“Insurance was a key, (in getting players to agree to play),” said Saltman, who sold the television rights for the upcoming games. “I think you’ll see an exciting brand of football. We have an 18-game schedule. Standings will be kept with a championship game in Hawaii on Dec. 19.
“None of us really want to be here, but the facts are real; we want football. We, of course, hope it will be an abbreviated schedule.”
Saltman said that participating players Monday night will receive a minumum of $3,000, with players on the winning team getting $4,000.
Another NCAA rule broken?
UT drops case against cable firm
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The University of Texas will not pursue legal action against a Tulsa firm over the cable televising of the Oklahoma-Texas game last Saturday.
But, the university’s legal counsel said Texas is still studying possible action to keep the situation from happening again.
Jim Crowson told The Daily Oklahoman that attorneys for the school took a voluntary non-suit in a case filed against United Video Inc.
United Video, a Tulsa common carrier, provided the game telecast to cable television systems in Oklahoma outside the authorization of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
The cable firm picked up the television signal originated by Fort Worth, Texas, television station KXAS at the request of several of its cable television system customers, United Video officials said.
As a common carrier licensed by the Federal Communications Commission,
United Video can “pick a signal off the air” from any station and offer it to cable companies without the permission of the originating station.
Under pressure from the NCAA, the University of Texas had gone to court in Dallas Saturday and obtained a temporary restraining order from a state judge, an order that barred United Video from carrying the signal.
Texas officials said they read the order over the phone to a United Video employee, but did not have time to serve it personally.
“We decided not to pursue this action because we did not get personal service,” Crowson said. “If we had, we would have asked the court to hold United Video in contempt.”
After networks decided not to pick up the game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Saturday, the NCAA gave its approval to stations in Dallas, Austin and Oklahoma City markets to air the game as “exception” telecasts.
No Oklahoma City station picked up the telecast because it would have been forced to purchase the unsold tickets from the Oklahoma State-Kansas matchup also in its viewing area.
The NCAA said it was the University of Texas’ responsibility to see that the rules against unauthorized telecasts were carried out, and if they weren’t, Texas could be penalized a regional network TV appearance or barred from future exception telecasts.
NCAA officials said Tuesday that the university had sent them a summary of what happened on the telecast, and that copies would be sent to members of the NCAA TV committee.
NCAA officals said they thought there was a possibility that the TV committee would not penalize Texas because the school had apparently made a strong effort to see that the rules were carried out.
“We’re still concerned about that market and its vulnerability to this kind of situation,” Crowson said.
Penguins slip past Vancouver. 5-4
By BARRY WILNER AP Sports Writer
The Pittsburgh Penguins were depressed. They carried an 0-2-1 record into their game with the Vancouver Canucks and only 6,566 fans showed up.
Worse still, the Penguins trailed the Canucks 4-3 heading into the final minutes of their National Hockey league contest Tuesday night.
“You know what you can do but you still have to prove it,” said goalie Michel Dion, whose team certainly wasn’t proving anything up to that point.
Then Doug Shedden tied the game with 1:41 remaining and Pat Boutette scored the winner, his third goal of the night, with 1:04 left. Boutette skated in front of the net and tipped defen-seman Greg Hotham’s shot past goalie Richard Brodeur.
“To get your first win like that," said Dion, who made 30 saves, “it definitely has got to help. We're competitors."
Elsewhere, it was Calgary 9, Edmonton 4; New Jersey 2, Boston 2, and Los Angeles 5, Winnipeg 3.
Flames 9, Oilers 4
Kent Nilsson had a goal and four assists, while Phil Russell and Danny McDonald each scored twice as the Flames registered their first victory of the season for rookie Coach Bob Johnson. Calgary was the final NHL
team to register a point in the standings.
Edmonton grabbed a 3-1 margin before Russell’s two goals tied it. After McDonald and the Oilers’ Mark Messier traded power-play goals in the second period, Richie Dunn put the Flames ahead to stay with a shot from just inside the blue line.
Bruins 2, Devils 2
New Jersey stayed undefeated (1-0-3) despite being outshot 32-13, including 13-2 in the third period, when the Bruins scored their goals. Goalie Lindsay Middlebrook, making his first appearance of the season, kept the Bruins off the scoreboard until 12:29 of the final period.Middlebrook helped New Jersey kill a 1:03 span when the Bruins had a two-man advantage in the second period.
Yvon Vautour and Don I,ever scored for New Jersey, with l/ever’s goal coming while the Devils were shorthanded. But Boston’s Tom Fergus broke the schneid, then Mike Milbury’s shot caromed off Middlebrook’s glove and into the net for the tying goal.
Kings 5, Jets 3
Bernie Nicholls scored twice and rookie goalie Gary Laskoski made 37 saves to register his first NHL triumph. Nicholls scored on a rebound 18 minutes into the first period during an LA power play, then beat Jets netminder Ed Staniowski by deflecting Steve Bozek’s shot from along the boards.

MONTREAL (AP) The baseball cap Bill Virdon donned was too tight, but Montreal p]xpos President John McHale expects him to be a perfect fit as the new manager of the National League team.
The Expos Tuesday named Virdon as the sixth manager in their 14-year history, signing him to a two-year contract. The club also has an option on a third year.
“We think Bill is the right man for the job,” said McHale. “I’ve admired his work for a long time.
“I’ve watched him develop as a manager. He’s a winner, and as a player he was a hustler, a great defensive player, who unlike many others, chose to go pretty deep in the minor leagues to become a manager.”
Virdon, 51, began his managerial career in 1966 at Williamsport, Pa., in the Class AA Eastern League. He
eventually managed the Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees and Houston Astros in the majors, compiling a career won-lost record of 849-781.
The Astros fired Virdon Aug. IO, in the middle of the second year of a three-year contract. When McHale requested and received the resignation of Expos Manager Jim Fanning on the last day of the 1982 season, he turned to Virdon.
“We had several calls for the job, but when we put it all together, the answer came out Virdon,” said McHale. “This is not an easy club to manage.
“We have a club where the majority of players need to look at the manager with respect and know he’s been through the wars. That’s why I thought experience and getting the right guy were the major qualifications.”
Kagel placed as new strike mediator
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Sam Kagel is a 73-year-old mediator who says he’s settled more than 10,000 disputes because he “won’t play footsie with either side.”
Kagel, selected Tuesday to mediate the 23-day-old National Football league player strike, immediately flew to the East Coast to get the stalled talks started again.
Kagel is no stranger to pro football. He’s worked with the owners and players as an arbitrator in grievance proceedings, and he has a reputation for fairness.
“I won’t play footsie with either side,” Kagel said in a 1971 interview.
“I try to find out what each side wants — not what they think they want or what they say they want, but what they really want and need — and then I try to get it for them,” he said.
In 1968, Kagel helped end a 41-day strike by San Francisco newspaper workers. A year later, an 18-day strike at eight San Francico Bay area hospitals ended after Kagel came in to arbitrate.

Bulls dunk Spurs, 150 131 with aid of Corzine
AUSTIN (API - Kciinie Theus and Dave Corzine each scored 23 points Tuesday night as the Chicago Bulls broke a 37-37 first-period tie and overwhelmed the San Antonio Spurs, 150-131. in a National Basketball Association exhibition game.
Corzine, who had 17 of his points in the first half, was traded to the Bulls from San Antonio during the off-season.
Artis Gilmore, who went from Chicago to the Spurs in that trade, had only six points for his new team.
San Antonio’s George Gervin. the leading scorer last year in the NBA, was ill and missed the game as did Johnny Moore, who led the NBA in assists last year. Moore has not signed a new contract with the Spurs.
David Greenwood was hurt
and did not play for Chicago, which finished next-to-last in the Central Divison last year. San Antonio won the Midwest Division.
Ed Rains scored 22 points to lead San Antonio. Mike Mitchell had 21, Gene Banks had 19 and Roger Phegley had 18, including 16 in the first 12 minutes, for the Spurs.
Chicago’s top draft pick, Quentin Dailey, played 17 minutes and scored 12 points.
Kings rebound over Rockets for 119-108 win
AUSTIN (AP) - Ray Williams, Mike Woodson and I^arry Drew combined for 59 points Tuesday night as the Kansas City Kings overcame a three-point deficit at the end of three quarters and ran past the Houston Rockets 119-108 in National Basketball Association exhibition play.
Williams, who fouled out
w ith 2:52 left in the game, was high scorer for Kansas City with 22 points. Woodson had 19. and Drew tossed in 18.
Houston, which finished 16 games ahead of Kansas City in the Midwest Division last year, scored only 18 points in the final quarter after leading 90-87 at the end of three.
Calvin Murphy scored 22 points for Houston.
Kansas City won easily despite the absence of No. I draft choice l.aSalle Thompson of Texas, who has not signed a contract. Thompson, a 6-10 center, watched the game from the stands.
Houston’s No. I draft choice, Terry Teagle of Baylor, who signed a contract only a few days ago, played 20 minutes and scored seven points.
