The a.m. Monday with the 1,200- strike began at 12:01 . , player union saying "No Freedom, No Football" and hoping lie walkout- will force the 26 JFL club owners to grant the N'FLPA its so-called freedom demands. Starting Wednesday in San Diego, where tht Chargers are open the first NFL camp, the union hopes to keep rookies and free agents, as well as its own membership, from reporting for training. If successful, the NFLPA action could eliminate the exhibition season and seriously affect the revenue o f ' many teams. Pat Miitson, '.'the .Bengals' player representative, said the vole to support the NFLPA was unanimous.

"What you are lolling these people is not consistent with the information I am receiving," Brown told Garvey. Garvey countered: "The owners are telling the public they'll play anyone who can walk on a field in order to go ahead with exhibition games." This is the second strike ae 1 lion by the pro football union-and the fourth in major league snorts--since 1970, but the walkout four years a'go ended before preseason play started.
