WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1988- NFL to d ASSOCIATED PRESS It probably doesn't mean the return to the days of 240-pound linemen, but the NFL is getting ' tougher on the use of steroids, 'which for more than a decade ' turned some marginal players ' into near-300-pounders. " ' The league said Tuesday that ' players caught using steroids a second time could be subject to .discipline by Commissioner Pete .Rozelle. The warning was contained in Rozelle's annual drug - memo sent to all NFL training .xamps. ,,',. The discipline was not specified in the 15-page document and league officials sought to t play down the change. V . "Last year we tested the players for anabolic steroids for the ' first time, this year we are again "testing," said NFL spokesman Joe Browne. "The difference this year is that we have told the players they could face possible disciplinary action. However, I am viiot suggesting suspensions for Resting positive for anabolic ste-.roids at this time." That phrase was also contained in this year's message. Continued from Page 1 much he has retained. "I go .back and try to help my daughter with freshman algebra and I can't even get through page "one." notes the coach. "Looking at a notebook is certainly different than seeing it happen on the ; practice field. It's like reading about a golf swing and trying to . go out and execute it. That's why we have our veteran quarterbacks in early. I made a com- , merit to offensive coordinator John Becker Monday night that no matter how seasoned a quarterback becomes I'm always going to require them to come in early." Inactivity could cost Chandler a bundle of money. Any contract he signs will be laden with bonus clauses based upon playing time and productivity. Chandler's agent (Mike Sullivan) has expressed concern in the past about his client's status with the club in the future with the presence of Jack Trudeau. A far mbre pressing question is how . Chandler fits into the present .picture? , - -: ; ; General manager Jim Irsay .made a new contract offer to Chandler and his agent late Jvlonday. Tuesday, he was await- tng word from Sullivan. "The conversation was affable and he ; said he would give us a counter offer soon," said Irsay. Trials k Continued from Page 1 the 100 final Saturday in 9.88, 1 is also in the field. Florence Griffith-Joyner, '"whose 10.49 100 Saturday shattered the old record of 10.76, will ;!'begin her chase of the 200 world, record of 21.71 Friday. Grifflth- Joyner is running as well as anyone in the world right now and says she is on target to . topple the 200 mark. I "I'm on world-record pace right now." Grifflth-Joyner said. "iH plan to give the 200 my best performance ever. If I do what 'I'm supposed to do. then the .record will fall." -a; The pole vault and the wom-;en's 400-meter hurdles are the pother two finals today. Billy 01-son, Earl Bell and Mike Tully are v the favorites in the pole vault. j! American record-holder Judi ''' Brown King will try to rebound I; from two lackluster preliminary ' races to make the 400 hurdles team. The first five events of the 5 men's decathlon begin today with the 100-meter dash at 9 a.m. Other key events include the first rounds of the men's 5.000 and women's 1,500 and the I steeplechase semifinals. , ; V GWENN TORRENCE, who ran : Colts (the brass flamingo ANNIVERSARY lsciolm But Rozelle went further this year, noting that players in whom steroids are detected in camp-opening drug tests are subject to the random testing for "reasonable cause," similar to that imposed on those who test positive for other substances. If that takes place at training camp, Rozelle said, the player will then be re-tested within four weeks. If that test turns up positive, he will then undergo a complete medical evaluation by the team physician and the NFL's drug advisor, Dr. Forrest Ten-nant. "Each instance in which a second positive test for anabloic steroids is confirmed will be handled on a case-by-case basis," Rozelle wrote. "Involved players will be subject to appropriate discipline by the commissioner." CHICAGO BEARS A Bears' official says he's optimistic the club will sign linebacker Otis Wilson before the start of training camp Wednesday. But finance director Ted Phillips says the team is still far apart in FREE AGENT offensive lineman Brian Baldinger was signed Tuesday in an attempt to help fill a void created by the expected lengthy contract talks with Pro Bowl guard Ron Solt. Baldinger, 6-4, 261 pounds, was signed as a free agent by Dallas in 1982 and has been on the Cowboys' active list ever since with the exception of 1985 when he was sidelined with a knee injury. Baldinger has a degree in psychology from Duke. , HOOFBEATS WISH-Chan-nel 8 is contemplating presenting the Mike Ditka show on Sundays directly opposite the Ron Meyer show, which is moving to WTHR-Channcl 13 . . . Veterans are scheduled to report in time for the evening meal today. They will undergo physical exams Thursday and physical testing Friday morning before hitting the practice field Friday afternoon. Defensive back John Holt was a spectator Tuesday afternoon. He reports his surgically-repaired Achilles tendon is responding well to treatment and expects to be ready to play in about six weeks . . . Meyer is considering scratching practice Thursday morning for the players already in camp because the training staff will be involved in physical exams for the vets . . . Linebacker Jeff Leiding has retired and will return to school at Texas to earn his degree. Leiding a 10.91 to finish third in the women's 100 final, was asked if the fast times turned in by the American women were messing with the minds of the eastern European women. ' "We have destroyed their minds," Torrence said. HUNTSMAN HAD been worried prior to the Trials about U.S. chances in the 1992 Barcelona Games. But some solid performances by younger athletes have changed his mind considerably. "The selection of the team has proven to be a veteran and a young person on every team and that's an excellent prospect," said Huntsman. "If we can give the younger athletes the support they need, we will have a real good team in 1992." The key to U.S. Olympic medal hopes in 1992 and beyond will be improved coaching and financial support of athletes, Huntsman said. Willie Banks, the world record holder in the triple jump, wants U.S. track officials to realize the different needs of veteran and younger athletes. "People are starting to see there are two arenas development and people who are there already who need to improve that one notch to win a medal. We need to recognize that more and direct our efforts to helping both groups."
