The two outspoken opponents of the playoffs were Coaches Raymond Bright ol Conway and Chili Davis of Jone.shoro. Bright offered the argument that there is "nothing to gain financially" through thc playoffs and that the system merely makes a lontj season longer. Hays Gibson. Conway's superintendent who takes an active part in the athletic program, supported Bright with this comment: "f don't believe thc playoffs were .satisfactory two years ago, and I can't see. any great change this lime that should make them belter. Most teams play 11 or 12 games during their regular season and that's enough football for any high school." Davis said he %vns against the system but would go along with it, adding: "I don't think lhat a playoff system follows the current trend of football de-emphasis and H should &o eliminated altogether." \V 79 75 70 CD 70 70 55 •H gb Pet. .590 .564 3' .530 8 .527 8 .526 8 .522 3 .410 24 .331 34', 2 NATIONAL LEAGUE Brooklyn New York St. Louis Philadelphia ...
