C.?-IKDEPENDENT(Att) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) t*i »wh, cnn.. MQI., JM. M. im The football season ends tonight -- honest New York limes Service : MIAMI BEACH - Big, buiiy Gak- Gillingham was standing at the round bar off the lobby of the Hyatt House here the other evening talking to Tom Mack, \Vho. like Gillingham, is one of the best guards in all of football. A third party put his arms around their shoulders in a friendly embrace. They both winced. "Ouch," said Gillingham. "Don't touch me there. I'm sore." Mack explained. "At the end of the football season you can't touch a guard ou the shoulders. He's been blocking for six months and his shoulders are very tender. We're not the only ones. There * * * goes Diron Talbert. You can't shake his hand because he has a broken bone in Ihnrn cnmnu'hprp " Talbert, the delensive tackle of the Redskins: Gillingham from the Packers, and Mack of the Rams plus 77 other stars will play in the guaranteed final game of the pro season tonight in the Orange Bowl. This is the annual antidi- maetic Pro Bowl contest and Miami fans are showing little interest. The crowd is expected to total no more than 35,000 in an 8fl,000-seat stadium. It really is a television production for the American Broadcasting Company which will have its regular Monday night crew broadcasting the vent. ABC is the chief source of income, too. Thn N a l i n n . i l K o n t h f l l l players pension fund benefits from This game whose origin came in 1951. The ABC fee. $1.5 million, will far exceed the gate receipts. The format is the American Conference all stars against those, of the National Conference as determined by vote of the league coaches. It is a matter of prestige to be chosen although there are several players who would just as soon skip the occasion. Fran Tarkenton did, being excused after pleading that he had a sore passing arm. Allen Page, Tarkenton's Viking teammate, says he would rather be home with his family than here. There has been low-key grumbling about the prizes, $2,000 to the winning players and $1,000 to the losers. It was low key because, after all, the player pension fund is (he over-al! beneficiary. Who will play? Just about everybody who is anybody. The starting quarterbacks will be Ken Stabler of the Raiders for the AFC and Jim Hart of the Cardinals for the NFC. The AFC is said to be the favorite largely on the basis of the last three games in the series which its teams won. Jack Geyer, the irreverent publicity director of the Rams and a dedicated Southern California alumnus who is helping out here, said, hopefully in jest, "The reason the NFC squad is the underdog is because we have two Yale guys on our squad." . The two Ivy products are Calvin Hill of the Cowboys, a reserve running back behind starter Lawrence McCutcheon of the Rams, and Dick Jauron of the Lions, the kick return specialist for the NFC squad. · Little has been asked of the players during the week. The coaches, John Madden and Chuck Knox, have kept the workouts short and the players have toured the golf courses, gone to the races and shop-talked around the Americana and Hyatt House. The game is slightly rigged in their favor - the offenses- are limited by agreement and blitzing by defensive players is forbidden. - MILLER- WALTON- ALLISON WINS-- JpH|, BUD TUCKER ^K ·* - - ' ' : 3iB ipss^ /^I The Pro Bowl: ffiBkV *T-- J^ /Afc HlfVTjB exercise in excess There may be goodness and mercy in the NCAA, NA1A, NBA, NHL, WFL, WHA and AHA, which is not to mention the AF of L and the CIO. But there is none in the NFL. Pleading dedication to wholesome family entertainment, the pro football people would now have us view the Pro Bowl game which is an event of pushing and shoving billed as sort of an all-star thing. You suspect, of course, that at this late stage of the football season an all-star is one coveting two weeks in Miami while his old lady is shovelling snow off the veranda in Peoria. YOU KNOW IT WILL BE ON national television ;md you know tonight is Monday night. You know what that means. · The promoting body refers to this classic as an event of signicance inasmuch as it features the best players from the NFC against the cream of the AFC. One of the obvious troubles is that you no longer believe anything these people tell you. I mean, they told us last week that two great teams would meet in Super Bowl IX. It is the custom in the NFL for the visiting team to send an advance man to town one week ahead of the main travel part}'. His function, naturally, is to bend the ears of local journalists in order to create interest in the upcoming game. This tradition was observed by Pittsburgh and Minnesota for Super Bowl week. For the Pro Bowl thing several NFL publicity men, including Jerry Wilcox of the Rams, descended on Miami two weeks in advance of the event. This only reads like a pleasant assignment. You envision a PR man walking into a newspaper office at this particular point in time to announce he wishes to discuss professional football. His hat follows him out the door. ESTABLISinNG INTEREST AMONG THE PLAYERS is even more difficult. The closest thing to a solution is paying the members of the winning side more money than the losers. But this does not always work. A similar financial format prevailed for the Super Bowl but it did not inspire the Minnesota Vikings. Besides, a guy sashaying along the boulevard in Miami at the height of the tourist season will spend more than he makes. Paul Horning once explained it when the Pro Bowl game was held out here. "They paid me eight hundred," Paul said, "and I left eleven hundred on Sunset strip." You also get a picture of the coaches working themselves up to a fever pitch over tbe Pro Bowl. Chuck Knox of the Rams watched the Super Bowl and wept. It was his team that blundered away the playoff eame which sent Minnesota to New Orleans. Being coach of the NFC in the Pro Bowl does not necessarily put Knox on cloud nine. The other day on the phone we asked him what he was thinking about, naturallv expecting an offering of cliches regarding the fine football team which will be placed on the field by tho Apr lilt: AT L . "I AM THINKING ABOUT THE DRAFT" Knox replied What about the Pro Bowl? "We have some high picks in the draft," Knox ciiH "I'm pnpmipa Ppd ^dlu. l m cut. lull ogcxi. But the mid-winter classic . . . "We will not consider needs in the draft." Knox said. "We will pick the best players available." Perhaps Chuck could not find proper words for the Pro Bowl, but several suggesstions immediately come to mind. Not the least of these would be wretched excess.
