Thi TIMES-REPORTER Sat., July 27,1974 DOVER-NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO QB reports to camp Eagles 9 Gabriel raps freedom issue CHESTER, Pa. (AP) Quarterback Roman Gabriel says he crossed the National Football League Players Association picket line because he doesn't like the freedom issue which has kept players on strike. "There are two ways to bargain, you can go in with a bunch of stuff and see what you can get. Or you can go in with what is basic. And sometimes you get more when you stick with what is basic," Gabriel said. "If the Players Association had limited its freedom demands to the Rozelle rule and the option clause, I probably would have stayed out. But we probably would have all been in camp last week," the $125.000-a year, 14-year veteran said at a news conference. Tight end Kent Kramer and defensive back Willie Germany, two other veterans, joined Gabriel in camp late Friday, giving Coach Mike McCormack five vets Will WFL attendance drop off? NEW YORK (AP) - Some people take a reserved approach to the enthusiastic reception the World Football League has received in the three weeks since its first season started. They say that when the National Football League starts playing, the WFL's attendance will drop off. Members of the New York Stars don't feel that way, however, and the Stars have played before over 140,000 people in their three games this season. "The people who come to Stars games don't go to the NFL games, I think," said Stars' quarterback Tom Sherman. "And in the cities where there aren't NFL teams, the people are going to keep coming." "But New York needs another team, too," says placekicker Moses Latjerman. "I know a lot of people that go crazy for football—no matter who's playing." A lot of those people have shown up at games the Stars have played. New York opened the season with a loss before 59,112 at Jacksonville against the Sharks, welcomed 17,943 to 21,000-seat Downing Stadium for their home opener, then travelled to Philadelphia last Thursday for a 17-15 triumph over the Bell before 64,719 and a national television audience. "Our games aren't on the same, nights as the NFL, for one thing, so there's no competition" says defensive tackle John Elliott. "And for another thing, there are people who have season tickets for the (NFL) New York Jets and Giants that still come to our game." The game they saw In New York was a horrifying 32-29 loss to the Birmingham Americans after the Stars had breezed to 315 first-half yards and a 29-3 lead at intermission. The lights at Downing Stadium were dismally dim—players, coaches and fans admitted it—and the hometown heros lost. Thursday's triumph over the Bell should help as the Stars return to New York to face Jacksonville this Wednesday night to try and avenge their opening loss. "Yes, the win has to do a lot for us," said Stars Coach Babe 'Parilli. "People like night football, and the 1 only time you see it in the other league is on Monday night. Football, let's face it, is the No. 1 sport. I just hope the people keep coming to see it in New York." No discipline, no football! ByJOHNNEANSONNE Newsday NEW YORK - Nodiscipline,,No football? I see a crack in the players' union's solidarity, a clinging of many rank-and-file members to the basic theory of football discipline. One of the things the union is fighting is the owners' and coaches' belief that their players must be taken by the hands and disciplined, screamed at like so many Army privates. My question is: How often do the privates find security in that discipline? Not all do. Football players often become football coaches. They see the game's environment basically through the same eyes. They've been kicked in the fanny so often since they started playing the game back in the 7th grade that a goodly number of them believe it works. MOST FOOTBALL players make good soldiers, in other words. The volunteer usually gets ahead. He passes the ammunition and expects his teammates to do the same. When the New York Giants fell apart last season, their player representative did not lash out at the bungling coaching of Alex Webster or the organization. Instead, Bob Tucker called his teammates "quitters." Many players agree with fines and curfews. Former players always seem to, convinced that their successors will realize later — when they grow up, you know — that it was good for them. American League East W L Pet.

Andy Robustelli, former all-pro and now director of operations with theGiants, said, "They're men, but all men are weak, and sometimes they'll stay out till four in the morning. If a coach can't find a player, then how can he control him? As a player, if I could get away with one less back-bend, then I'd do it." "Sure," agreed Giant quarterback Randy Johnson. "You need curfews. Frankly, if you didn't have them, some guys would take advantage.'' THE CONFUSION — and something the players' union has failed to get across to many of its members — is the correlation between discipline in the job and discipline in life. Robustelli thinks that if you let a player stay out late then he won't have the self-discipline to do a back-bend. Houston Oilers center Bill Curry, president of the players' union, admits that some will stay out late if they can, but "curfews and fines are also motivation, just proof that a coach can't motivate. They shouldn't worry so much about a player's personal habits as his performance on the field. In any business, if a guy doesn't produce, then get rid of him. I know that football players are used to being treated like children. It's time we grew up, though, and time we were allowed to." The league needs more like Bill Curry, who understands the silliness of owners viewing themselves as parents. But what Curry doesn't realize is that there really aren't more of him. If this strike continues much longer, there will be more veterans like the Giants' Roy Hilton, who crossed the picket line. Hilton said he simply put himself and his family ahead of the union. Also, he finds security in football, he said. "ONE OF THE reasons I like being traded (from Baltimore) is that it creates several new chances for me," Hilton said. "I still want to play a few years, and coaching is a possibility. I've rolled with the punches." Plus, there always are aspiring free agents like Andy Self ridge who keep coming back to football though football has tried to reject them. "My brother has an office job," Selfridge said, "and I've spent some time checking it out. Nine to five. Now that's the kind of thing that made me feel like 1 was suffocating. I enjoy football. I don't really have a burning desire to do anything else." It's too bad, in a way, that owners have that leverage. They know the players basically want to play. They always can tell the players to be happy they aren't selling shoes. Give them freedom, or give them a football. A heck of a lot will take the football about three weeks from now. Phila-owned filly wins twice at Harrison fair CADIZ — Mississippi Woman, a three-year-old pacing filly, won its first two starts at the Harrison County Fair Friday.

Gabriel, who arrived at the Eagles' Widener College training camp after dark Thursday night, said: "The decision to come into camp was not as difficult as the decision how to handle it, My way of thinking was that I don't agree with the way our association has more or less attacked the owners. "Their way of negotiating was like sending a bill to Congress with a few riders, hoping the big bill would be accepted with the riders," explained Gabriel, who quit the players association in 1970 and rejoined it last year "as a show of team unity." Gabriel said he timed his decision to coincide with a vote by 25 other veterans to end their informal workouts and report to camp. Player representative Tom Dempsey was expected to conduct it soon.

After a prolonged absence with a bad back, Seaver returned Friday night and showed .flashes of oldtime brilliance by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 with a four-hitter. While overpowering the Cardinals with a stunning fastball, the two-time Cy Young Award winner was more impressed with his physical condition. "The big thing," said Seaver, "was that I was able to pitch and not have anything hurt." Seaver hadn't pitched since July 7 because of a sciatic nerve condition in his back. On Friday night, Seaver made up for his lack of work over the past few weeks. Seaver threw 108 pitches, including 55 of 66 fastballs for strikes.

With two out in the first, Al Oliver extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a single and Stargell followed with a line drive triple to right.

We hope we can take care of that on the road trip." Rangers 10, White Sox 6 "Well, no one can say our bats are dead any more," Manager Billy Martin said after his Rangers banged out 16 hits en route to their fourth straight victory.
