Super Chiefs Arrive on Coast Stram Fines Flanker L08 ANGELES (AP)~ Super Bowl report: the Kansas City Chiefs have arrived and are practicing, Green Bay is on the way, ticket sales are questionable and a suit is proceeding over the scheduled television blackout of Los Angeles. The Chiefs, champions of the American Football League, arrived in nearby Long Beach and held their first practice Wednesday afternoon. Flanker Otis Taylor was fined for missing the team flight, but showed up at practice. Coach Frank Stram wouldn't say how much Taylor was fined, but set up strict training rules. The Chiefs, who beat Buffalo, 31-7, for the AFL title, have definite ideas about beating National Football League champion Green Bay in the first game of its kind Jan. 15 in Memorial Coliseum. Straw said there will be a •quad meeting each day at 10 a.rn., the team will practice each afternoon for one hour and IS minutes, and Disneyland isn't on the schedule. The only injured Chief is tight end Fred Arbanas, who has a slight shoulder separation but is expected to be ready for the game. • The Green Bay Packers, who edged Dallas, 34-27, for NFL honors, will train at UC Santa Barbara, about 90 miles north of Los Angeles. The Packers will leave Green Bay next Sunday and will practice at Santa Barbara through Friday, Jan. 13. The next day Coach Vince Lombardi's club will work out in the Coliseum. Meanwhile, just how many fans will turn out is causing some controversy. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle and Bill Nicholas, general manager of the Coliseum, said the game will fill the. 93,000-seat stadium. But 49,000 seats go on sale today in the Southern California area. Reportedly, 27,000 seats have been sold and 18,000 have been allocated to teams in the respective leagues.

That's the way Namath viewed the Super Bowl game from bedside Wednesday as he gave a medical report on his right knee and a quarterback's report on the clash between the National and American football league champions. "I'm not leaning either way," said the New York Jets' quarterback, "it's hard to judge. Green Bay is a great team, but Kansaf City's got a good team and they're liable to score 50 points on anybody," But then Namath, obviously looking at it from the viewpoint of a quarterback, talked about defences and mistakes. 4 • « "I think there are * few better defenses around than Kansas City's — like Green Bay's or Buffalo's," he said. "Naturally I'd like to see Kansas City win, but Green Bay makes fewer mistakes than any team I've ever seen. "Kansas City was vulnerable to a rushing attack this season — more so than the passing. They also make more mistakes than.Green.Bay,— and if.that', the case, that could be the outcome of the game." While Namath speculated on the outcome of the game, he did the same about the operation on his celebrated right knee, and pointed put that while it. was coming along faster than anticipated there was no way of telling yet what the end result would be. * * * "I'm confident - it's been feeling great," he said as he propped his $400,000.leg u.p on.a pillow in his $79-a-day room at a Park Avenue Hospital. "It's coming along faster than expected and it looks good — but you don't really know until you start running." Whit Namath doesn't reaily know is whether there will be enough flexibility in the knee the operation was for a tendon transfer — to permit him to play again. , from blacking out the ares. The suit has been filed for local businessman Alan Minter by attorney Arthur Toll, who said: "We now have these statements and we will properly present them to the court hearing Friday." The case is scheduled to come before U.S. District Judge William Grey. Hawks Slip in LA Bing Bangs For Pistons By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS When he is hard-pressed to point out a Dave Bing weak ness, Detroit Player-Coach Dave DeBusschere will say the brilliant Pistons' rookie needs a little work on his defense. But then Bing will come up with a performance like the om he turned in during the Pistons 132426 National Basketball As sedation double-overtime victory over Baltimore Wednesday night and defense seems almos beside the point. * * + Bing scored six points in the second overtime and led the Pistons with 33 points, the same number Don Ohl had for Balti more. The Pistons had led by as much as 13 points in the secom half, but the Bullets took an 86 77 lead after three periods as the Pistons got just 14 points in the third period. A tap-in by DeBusschere with 30 seconds left sent the game into overtime. Jack, Marin's .20-foot jumper in the final second of the firs overtime gave the Bullets an other chance, but only deUyei their 10th straight defeat, a club record.

Rod Sherman of Southern Pitcher Perry; Thit Is the Year For the Giants By BOB WILLS Raleigh Times Sports Writer Written for The AP RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gaylord Perry, a 21-game winner with San Francisco last season, said today this should he the year the Giants-capture the tional League pennant. Perry, a native of William- stfln, in eastern North Carolina, explained: "We have been out of the pennant's race by less than two games for the past two seasons and I definitely think we can take it all this year. We have the equipment and the young players who can share oi the load." The Giant pitcher, in Raleigh to accept an award from the local chapter of the Hot Stova League, said the Giants have one big worry: "Willie Mays must get the proper rest." Perry said, "Age is catching up with Willie. He doesn't show it out on the field, but he doesn'l work out too much before a game anymore. "We have to rest him to keep him going and this may be whai hurts us more than anything else — to look around and nol see Willie in center field." Perry disagreed with some baseball people who predict Pittsburgh's Pirates will win the National League pennant in 1967. The Pirates, Perry said, lack pitching. "They only have one real stopper — Bob Vsale. You need more than one sure winner to go to the top and stay there."
