Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - October 10, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg free press saturday october 10, 37 winning a tradition with Hawkeye teams by Mike o Shaughnessy timing and tradition a words that will take on Specia meaning sunday when Winnipeg Hawk eyes meet Regina ram in the first game and Proba Bly the deciding game of to Manitoba Saskatchewan Junio football league final. Both Are keys and fortunately Hawk eyes hold both in their hands. Last season Hawk eyes Nee Weston wildcats lost eight straight in the league. This sea son they breezed through with a 7-1 record to finish in top spot ahead of Regina. The timing is what keyed the change from loser to Winner and the tradition is what should keep it that Way. Hawk eyes entered the 1970 season with a drop of players voted most Likely to do very Little. They had a Small nucleus from last season s wildcats a group of eager youngsters from last year s Canadian juvenile champions a few former col lege players and even a pair of youngsters who had never laced on football boots in their lives. That s where the timing came in. As if by magic and with More than a Little help from coach Mike Febroni the various groups became a unit. Hawk eyes precision offence Tore the league apart not be cause of Superior size or strength but because everyone did his part to be in the right spot at the right time. On defence this timing was much slower coming and had t Ven fully arrived in the final game of the season with numerous offsides giving Haw eyes Cross town rivals the Lods excellent opportunities o stage an upset. But the timing showed it was coniing with the charging Haw Nicklaus Are easy winners Virginia water England a Lee Trevino former . Open Golf Champion ousted . Pea Champion Dave Stockton 7 and 6 Friday and moved into today s final in the Piccadilly world match play championship against Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus reigning British open Champion and Winner of everything worthwhile in Goll apart from this one Defeated Tony Jacklin British Holder of the .-open championship 5 and 4 in their 36 Hole Semi final. It was the first time and probably the last that an Amer ican Holder of the British open had met a British Holder of the . Open. Trevino said after his Victory Over Stockton my chances in the final Are exceptionally Good. I m on a hot putting Streak Anc i have the feeling i la stay with it. Beating Billy Casper in the first round gave me a terrific lift. It was then that i realized i could win this championship Jack Nicklaus is going to be a Tough Man to beat but today i was 11 under Par after 30 holes and that included a double Trevino had 11 birdies and one Eagle in his crushing vie tory against Stockton Over Wen Worth s Par 74 in land layout. Nicklaus had no trouble against an out of form Jacklin who lapsed on his putting and Lis Long game. Nicklaus finished the first 18 Loles one up after sinking a putt of about 16 feet for a Birdie four at the 17th. Keye line throwing Rod Quarter Back Bob Bender for gaint losses that More than countered for the Over anxiousness. A full week of practice should improve the timing in this area enough to eliminate those mar Ginal mistakes that could prove much More costly against rams than they did against rods. If help is still needed that word tradition will be there front and Centre. Hawk eyes Aren t used to los ing and their past record proves it. Two straight Canadian Juve Nile titles and now with the name and tradition toiling under the Junior Flag for the first time a league Pennant. You can t do much better than that. On the other hand Regina has a tradition too. Those in the know say rams should have beaten Saskatoon hilltops in the league playoffs last year but those same rams pulled a fold and hilltops went on to win the Canadian title. Rams have already folded once this season losing to Hill tops last weekend to allow Haw Keyes Elbow room at the top of the final standings. If timing alone does t carry Hawk eyes through the series it s doubtful that tradition will let them falter.

Bomber head coach Jim Spavital declined to name his starter after putting his club through a brisk 85-minute workout at the stadium Friday night but the word is that he is leaning to wards the 27 year old newcomer. Spavital said both dial and Ron Johnson who received a concussion in last saturday s 15-0 win Over Ottawa rough riders have been throwing the Ball Well in practice after appearing Rusty earlier in the week. We re As ready As you can get both mentally and said Spavital. I suppose what makes the new Abc monday night pro football show a real departure is you Nave to hit yourself on the Side of the head sometimes to be convinced you Haven t tuned in on the Bob and Ray show. First you get Howard Cosell the Man of a thousand syllables who comes on As if he were Reading the tablets of Sinai to a group of retarded children who Are hard of hearing and unfamiliar with the language. Howard is the master of the innocent insult. A lawyer by profession a broadcaster by Accident he is capable of some of the most impersonal slaps in the face in the history of television. Unitas they say you can t throw the Long Ball anymore that you re through As a Long Dick Butkus they say you re an Howard s questions have a Strong Aura of have you stopped beating your about them. He does t interview people he prose cutes them. He implies he wants a definite yes or no and no volunteering from the witness. He accuses he does t interrogate. The unwary might think they had tuned in on the third degree of a known child molester he s Beautiful. He Speaks with All the deliberation of a Guy who has an Arrow in his Chest. He treats the game As if it were a pointless interruption of an otherwise Brilliant monologue. Bot the Way he pronounces Bart Stah the Way he they re booing he May say accusingly. You expect in the next breath to hear How do you then Don Meredith comes on with a refreshing Texas twang like a Harmonica around a campfire a Guy who is about to say did you hear the one about. The football game is quite incidental. They entrust that to Keith Jackson who is quite capable but seems Happy enough to stick to what s happening Down on the Field. They be scalded Abc with a few dog games this year but it s not going to matter much. In fact i might wish More of them were. I find Howard Cosell and Don Meredith much More entertaining than a Bunch of Damn Down and outs or safety blitzes. The Charm of Meredith is he comes on like a riverboat Gambler with a heart of Gold. He seems to have the life style of a Guy who expects to be shot any Day by a Guy he dealt five aces to. Cosell is As deadly serious As an archangel. Feels he has to make somebody squirm. Dandy which is what the Ball players Call Meredith has an a what the hell Well punt attitude. What Dandy is doing in a broadcasting Booth is some thing for Dallas Texas to account for anyway. He was the Best quarterback the Dallas cowboys Ever had. And still could be. When he quit in 1968, he was still Only 30 years old and had thrown for Yards and 135 touch Downs and had led the cowboys to two championship games one of which he lost to Green Bay barely by seven Points and the other by four Points. The year he quit he led the team to a 12-2 season record and the divisional playoff. There is really no reason he should be Reading defences from a Telephone Booth instead of from a pocket. The cow boys let him go with a shrug. But they Haven t done nearly As Well without him to put it nicely. The game i can t wait for is the monday night game of nov. 16 when St. Louis comes to Dallas and so does judge Cosell. Dandy will be keeping it Light and amusing and easy on the ears when suddenly a voice from on High will come on interrogating Cowboy coach Tom Landry. Turn turn Landry they said Don Meredith could t win the big ones with this club. Now you can t win the Little ones. Turn will you Tell the viewing audience what in the world the Dallas cowboys Are doing without Don Meredith suited up. Speak up turn the microphone is Over i la Tell you that one should make nil highlights. In Stant replay and great speeches of the Century. All i can say is Cowboy quarterback Craig Morton pronounced better have a Good night or they better put in a Rule he gets one Call to his lawyer and is advised of his rights when he sees the hanging judge coming.
