ALL EDITIONS F14 - The Arizona Republic BEST AVAILABLE COPY Thursday, November 23, 1989 Stallings' on-air presence was undoing with Cards HARDWARE STORES fey Bob Cohn he Arizona Republic J As we now know, not everyone was namored with how former Cardinals 6oach Gene Stallings performed on television and radio. Which is to say, 5ery well. Here's one story: Stallings, Cardials owner Hill Hidwill and other cam' officials had the NFL draft on ' V last spring when one of Stallings' 'alley National Bank commercials ame on. In Stallings' presence, lidwill reportedly remarked he was d up with seeing the commercials so tflcn. . I That might tell you all you need to now about how the owner felt about his coach's public exposure. Unlike many coaches, Stallings has SSuexccptional relationship with the fiSKicra, and the public. Yet, he never J53S permitted his own television gjjsjw. Bidwill once was criticized on the air by a previous coach, and fnwed it never would happen again. CTTrue, the Cardinals relented to vwe degree, allowing Stallings this JSSon to appear on Cardinals: 1st and KTSP-TV (Channel 10). He Jgsj) could have appeared on' other hffcrams. But the team wouldn't let Swlings cut his own deal with the rtStion. This angered Stallings, and cd to the increasing friction ecn himself and management. WjVllCU"VJ iV J'UIU HIV VWJU1IJUIJ J2g,000 for the weekly program. Stallings received about $40,000. That sounds like a lot, but most NFL coaches have their own shows and sewral receive upwards of $150,000. By all accounts, Stallings did a marvelous job on the air, especially on 1st and 10, which was taped before an audience. Not only was Stallings prepared and articulate, he could field a stupid or leading question and not make the person feel like an idiot, while also not maligning the organization ,Often, after the show finished tajwig and the stage lights were Struck, Stallings would remain on the seat Max's sports bar and continue toTchat with the crowd. Then he would sign autographs until being . practically begged to leave. A tough call Picture this.

The Super Bowl comes early this year. Channel 3. i A f f Gene Stalling Cards kept tight rein on his TV appearances, but couldn't control his relationship with camera. Buechler steps to the line for two free throws. The first shot goes up and. . . Zap. KTVK-TV (Channel 3) cuts away to the UA-Arizona State football game. Maybe it won't happen quite like that. But regardless of the score, Channel 3 will leave the basketball game and televise the football game, which starts about 3:30 p.m., in its entirety. The basketball game, televised nationally by ABC, starts at 2. "You can't win in this situation," said Channel 3 Program Director Sue Schwartz. "If we stayed with the basketball game and missed the kickoff, we'd irritate people. And 1 know coming out of the basketball game will irritate people We really labored over this." What it came down to, Schwartz said, is "we have to think of who the viewers will be looking for most. The interest in the Arizona-Arizona State game has to be greater." Even before UA and Michigan were announced as the teams playing in the Hall of Fame Tip-off Classic, Schwartz said she asked ASU about moving back the starting time. "They said they weren't able to do that," she said. "Then as time went on, 1 don't think they wanted to, because it was too late." Incidentally, the UA-ASU game will start at 3:30, regardless of what you might have heard. All three major stations in town this week had the game starting at different times. The big game Pat Haden, who will work with Jim Nantz and John Dockery on the CBS telecast of the Notre Dame-Miami football game Saturday, said Notre Dame is a "much easier team to get a handle on," because of its schedule. "They've played at least six very good football teams," said Haden, the former Southern Cal and Los Angeles Rams quarterback. "Miami has only been tested twice, against Florida State and Pitt. "I have a feeling this (Notre Dame) is a team that plays well in big games, and there's still somewhat of a question about Miami." However, Haden said, the quality of Miami's athletes probably surpasses Notre Dame's, "Notre Dame doesn't have the athletes Miami does and doesn't have the team speed," Haden ' said. "But they have a lot of role players. A lot of guys will never play a down of pro football, but they're real good college football players." Haden said Joe Moore, the Notre Dame offensive line coach, told him Miami "has the best defensive line he's ever seen in college football. "I challenged him on that, and he stuck by his story," Haden said. Bye bye It's official. KTSP-TV (Channel 10) sportscasten Anne Montgomery has accepted a job with ESPN as one of the anchors on SportsCenter. Montgomery will start with the cable network on Feb. 12. Her last day at Channel 10 will be Jan. 31.
