NBA's Lanier gives warning on drugs
NEW YORK (AP) - The National Basketball Association’s crackdown on involvement with cocaine and heroin la a warning to present and future college players that “there will be noplace for them in the NBA" if they use illegal drugs, says Bob Lanier of the Milwaukee Bucks and president of the players union.
Lanier and Commissioner Larry O'Brien signed an agreement at a news conference Wednesday in which it was announced that violators face expulsion from the NBA — the strongest stand taken yet by a sports league.
"We felt the stigma of drug use has hurt the sport and we want to eliminate it," said Larry Fleisher, general counsel of the National Basketball Players Association.
O’Brien said, "The message we are sending out today is clear: Drugs and the NBA do not mix. If you want to get involved with drugs, you won't be involved with the NBA."
The agreement between the league and the
players union stipulates that "any player who either is convicted of, or pleads guilty to, a crime involving the use or distribution of heroin or cocaine," or is found under a newly-instituted procedures to have illegally used these drugs he "shall immediately be permanently dismissed."
However, any banned player may appeal for reinstatement after two years. The approval of both the commisioner and the players union is needed for reinstatement.
The agreement will be into effect after the "amnesty period," which ends Dec. 31 this year.
The first time a player voluntarily seeks treatment for a drug problem, he will receive "no penalty of any kind." He will be paid and and the club will pay for his treatment.
A player, who previously requested and received treatment for a drug problem and volunteers a second time for treatment, will be suspended without pay but receive no other penalty.
Jets plan move to Jersey
NEW YORK (AP) - Tight end Tom Coombs prefers the natural grass of Shes Stadium to the artifice! turf of Giants Stadium, linebacker Bob Crable thinks that playing at the Meadowlands will be Just like playing a road game. And running back Scott Dierking simply "doesn’t like New Jersey."
Those were some of the players’ reactions to an announcement Wednesday by New York Mayor Ed Koch that the New York Jets are moving their National Football League franchise to New Jersey after this season.
Coombs, who lives on Long Island, said the decision was not up to the players, but he personally prefers "to play on natural grass." The Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., has artifical turf, while the Jets’ current home at Shea Stadium
has a grass surface.
"There are fewer injuries (on grass) and I’m used to playing on it," said Coombs. "Shea Stadium is convenient for the players and for the fans."
Crable, meanwhile, said: "Financially, it’s a good move for management. (But) we have nothing to say to the fans. It’s management’s decision. What does management have to say to the fans?"
Crable said "the only change for us will be that we’ll have to get (to the stadium) a day before the game and stay in a hotel," just as if the team was playing a road game.
Dierking was more blunt about the move.
“I don’t want to go,” said the reserve running bock. "I like Shea Stadium."

Friends don't let friends drive drunk
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Jay Haas, quietly establishing himself as one of the PCA Tour’s more proficient and consistent players, had some personal history going for him heading into the $800,000 Texas Open golf tournament as defending champion.
“Most of my success has come late in the season,” Haas said as he prepared for today’s opening round. “There’s been no real indication ifs going to happen again, but there’s still a little ways to go and maybe I can turn it around again.”
Haas, 29. a former NCAA champion, has won two tournaments in each of his last two seasons. And all four of them came late in the year.
Perhaps the most spectacular of his victories came in this event a year ago, when he led or shared the lead all the way, opening with a 7-under-par 63 and eventually scoring a 3-shot victory over Curtis Strange, his former teammate at Wake Forest He won it with an 18-under-par total on the 6,525-yard Oak Hills Country Club course
“That was one of my best tournaments.” Haas said. “I’ve been looking forward to coming back here all year long.
“It always gives you a good feeling to come in as the defending champion. Of course, you start out even this time, but when you’re defending, you know
you’ve played well on this golf course before, and that helps your confidence; gives you confidence that you can (day well again.”
Although not a winner this season, Haas has had a pair of runner-up performances, was third in another tournament, missed the cut only once all season and has $181,197 in winnings.
“From the standpoint of money, it hasn’t been a bad year at all. But it sure would be nice to win one before it’s all over,” said Haas, whose steady play has
provided him with a spot on the 12-man American team that will play Europe's best in the biennial Ryder Cup Matches rn Flonda next month.
Haas, who learned the game from his uncle,
former Masters champion Bob Goalby, is among the 156 in the chase for a $54,000 first prize.
Among the major contenders are Fuzzy Zoelier, who needs a sixth place finish or better to overtake the absent Hal Sutton on the year’s money-winning list; Rex Caldwell, who scored his first career victory last Sunday in Abilene; and Lee Trevino, who said he’s playing “better than I have in two years."
Also on hand are 1963 title-winners Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Bill Rogers, Keith Fergus, Mark Lye, Fred Couples, Jim Colbert, Danny Edwards, Gary Hall berg, Larry Mise, Gary Koch and Strange.

Changes hurting Rice athletics
HOUSTON (AP) - Rice University la the only Southwest Conference school that has not won a conference team title in any sport since the 1971-73
Prior to the Owls’ SWC tennis championship in that year, Rice teams had been competitive, winning a surprising number of titles for a small school with high academic standards.
The school still has its high entrance requirements and rigid standards, but is no longer winning and Rica athletic director Augie Erfurth places part of the blame on the decreased prestige of getting a college degree.
"There is a different type of athlete today than there was lf years ago,"
Erfurth said. "Back than, wo could go out and recruit on the baals of offering an athlete a nraatlgimw degree Hist hub a strung rrilu|
"But today, with the increases we aaa in prefaMtenal salaries, athletes aren’t as iatereMed in that degree. They are looking for a school that will
give them a ^rliHfboard into a pro contract.
"The big contracts that the pros are paying tends Ie dead the academic aspect of going to collage."
