Ed Garvey, executive director of the players' union, said the strike shaped up as a long one and added: "I'm confident we can hold out until a new collective bargaining agreement is signed." Garvey suggested the owners seem embarked on a course of "unlon-bustlng." "There won't be any neutrals this time," he declared Only one major player, linebacker Mike Curtis of the Baltimore Colts, openly has vowed to cross the picket lines but player representatives from the 26 teams reported support of the strike action was almost unanimous. The second NFL players' strike since 1970—baseball also has had two strikes in that time, one by umpires and the other by players — threatened to derail the exhibition schedule starting with the college all-star game against the Super Bowl champion Miami E)olphlns in Chicago July 26.

"Maybe some of the Dolphins: will have to give up some: money," he conunented. "but; they've been to the Super Bowl three straight years and what > more do they want?
