jNASTY THINGS Pressbox Off Limits To Karras 'DETROIT (AP) — Can a rejected-but silver-tongued. former football star find happiness as a sports columnist — when the team he's writing .about ,-won't even let, him in-the press- box? Former Detroit Lions defensive tackle Alex Karras, now a sports columnist for the Detroit Free Press, was barred from the Lions pressbox here Sunday when the Lions met and beat the Atlanta Falcons 41-38. Karras didn't sound too unhappy about it in his column Tuesday but he wasn't overjoyed. •"We're still paying his. salary," said the man v/ho barred him, Lions PR chief and former Free Press sports editor Lyall Smith. "He's done' nothing but say derogatory'things," about his former team and, :"I must assume the reason for his column is to say more derogatory things." „ Karras pooh-poohed the matter on the Free Press's front sports page underneath a headline that said, "Lions bar Karras from pressbox". ; "It's so childish. It's unheard of," said the Lion's reject "My column is not to criticize the Lions. I'm simply going to ---tell it like it is. I have no poi- 5ion pen," he mantained. :; VERY HONEST ~' "On the other hand I'm going Cto be very honest about what I •—feel . because that's what the iFree Press is paying me for." •f That's where the problem 4B Ogden Standard-Examiner, Tuesday, October 5, 1971 \Lamonica Leads Raider* To Vktory Over Browns •3 CLEVELAND.
