The game will be played at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto Saturday, June 4, at 8 p.m. EDT and will be televised nationally by the CTV network with the Toronto-Hamilton area blacked out.

George Reed, the CFL Players' Association president who announced the lineups, said the reason Green was dropped is that he isn't sure whether he'll be in the CFL or NFL this season. And Edwards was left off the team because of the possibility he'll sit out a season or two If he Is unable to renegotiate his contract.

(AP) Ricky Bell and Tony Dor-sett, the best running backs in U'. S. college football, were the first two choices Tuesday in the National Football League draft but the biggest winner may be their agent, Mike Trope. Bell was selected by Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dorsett went to D&fcrs after the Cowboys shipped four draft choices to Seattle for the Sea-hawks' pick. Both players are represented by Trope, who also will negotiate for two other high picks, tackles Marvin Powell, who went to New York Jets, and rwi Oo-n- rounerr Centres ' mm ' BUILDING MATERIALS HARDWARE 0 nUMStNrSUrfllES 0 TOOLS PANEUNS .

"Whatever Ricky Bell gets from Tampa Bay will be the going figure for Tony Dorsett at Dallas," said Trope. The numbers most heard at the draft were five years and between $1.25 and $1.5 million for glamour backs Beli and Dorsett and something in that same neighborhood for linemen Powell and Bryant. "I don't care if you draft a purple people eater with frog's legs," said Trope. "If you draft that high, you have to pay the going rate." ' Dorsett shattered all sorts of rushing records at Pittsburgh and won the Heisman Trophy, beating Bell, Southern California's great tailback, for the honor. In the draft, they reversed roles with Bell going No. I. LIKE HEISMAN WIN "Getting picked number one. . .is like Winning the Heisman," said Bell. "Now I know how Dorsett must have felt with all this attention." Bell remembered play-, ing. at USC under John McKay, "now Tampa Bay's head coach. "As coach, he's a philosopher," he said. "Give htm time and he'll win. He's making some wise decisions. . .like drafUnc me." . At Tampa, Bell will join Anthony Davis, ' another USC alumnus of the McKay era, who bought bia way out of his "contract with Toronto Argonauts after a disappointing season In tbe Canadian Foot hall Iaawe. -;
