It was ajlot easier In the days from 1956 when Frank Clair took over. . : The club waa in state dl chaos, and in the day following. ' and the yeara too there waa much wondering about where . they would go. ' .- That opening day In Toronto this year waa bound to be '-' discouraging,. It wouldn't have 'been if Jackson had been. throwing the ball to his receiver aa truly as he had been in l the past. It would have been a big night if the team had been 'foiling in every department a they had been in the loose . and lovely day of these exhibition gamea when the coaches take what we still feel la a day off and keep looking and ' stadying what they have in personnel and wondering what ' they'll all do when the schedule gets going. r 7 "" CANT BLAME COACHES "!: Nobody can blame the coaches for that They have a long season to go and why get terribly excited about this. The general idea i for th public to accept these exhibition game aa Just trial tests. It hit been given out as that and the : football public has been schooled to expect aa much. , ' ' To tell the truth these exhibitions have been labelled as fomeuiing less than what they should be a start to ,full interlocking schedule of the Canadian Football League. w There are few valid reasons why Ottawa, for instance, should have played four exhibition game against Eastern and Western teams without them counting for a point or two. '.The clubs involved can black jack home town fans into going to them if they wish, but the notion here is that they can't y Kp"RTiifon6ver. : . ; -.- n-,. - wv B.UUW au nw n"i'i w ml,J ucfw,i . football schedule shouldj begin earlier. We've heard it a ; ' himdred times, or maybe a few hundred, times. But it seems , Just a bit stupid and bit rough on the football public that i.they begin playing exhibition games between East and West as a substitute for scheduled game and bring in the lam .excuse that exhibitions will satisfy fan in both sectors and tnat ail wis ts necessary tor ine coacning suns. . . ... J If you were to ask the coaching staffs, they'd probably ;leU you that exhibition are so necessary that they could spend the better part of season playing Ihem. The latter are only human and so are the football players. You can delay this thing Interminably, and must be nearing lbs time when , "the coaches and club realize, this. But they won't until the ' public decides that an exhibition program almost approximating half the schedule It necessary (o get this operation under ''y. i , .? - STARTS IN NOVEMBER .' What have we got anyway? The exhibition schedule has produced four straight wins for th Rough Riders. The team didn't coast on- that record ' in their opening gam in Toronto, but they lost a gam that they should have won. And the Hamilton Tiger-Cats took a lacing at th hands of the Alouettes that made many fans wonder what there is to all these exhibition games. . i . Bui Smyth, the Rough Rider line coach and assistant '' tn Frank Clair, lone haa aucaeated that the nlavoff season " doeant atart until November. And that's really true, par-' ticularly if you figure that three of th four club involved in th Eastern race have the chance to make th Eastern (Canadian finals. 1 '': r ' ' 'Y : v ;';-!.'' : if i This is a pretty good setup anyway you look at it for .' the operators, and it's useless to criticize it so long aa they pack the stands. If was borrowed front the hockey playoff ; system, and it will continue so as long as it is profitable. ' But somewhere along th tin this has to .become - Canadian Football League; This may not b th appropriate Jttme. but It must be coming close to it with everybody playing ,,th same schedule. . ' ' ' ' J-y -ROUGH RIDERS' PROBLEM i : J . Rough Rider have a problem that th coaches have taken cognizance of in their owa way., Hamilton has one too, but K's a. little different Coaches will alwaya tell you that winning a Grey Cup produces a sens' of complacency in a . team.

They made it a . good season last year until Hamilton took them apart In the playoffs. The Tiger-Cats made them look like a act of Juniors when It came, to a acor in last year's playoffs.- The fact they won four exhibition games shouldn't leave them with hs ' impression they can coast in th schedule. And their tackling' '.. last weekend in Toronto left even their coaches with she impression they were coasting in thif department All of these exhibition games were nice. Everybody. got a chance to play.
