"It's my profession and I feel I've got an obligation to myself and my familv first. People ask who will a strike hurt first, the owners or the players association. I don't think the owners will suffer because many of them are millionaires--and really, I don't think it will hurt the players association, either.". The strike of,NFL veterans went into its second week today with picket lines up at four training camp sites and the chief negotiator for the 26 club owners saying he is ready to sii down at the bargaining table again with the players associ alion.

"Hell, we struck for big things in my day but here we're talking about slavery, hu man bondage and inhumane conditions," said the septuagenarian. Picketing started Wednesday at the San Diego Chargers' camp. The Houston Oilers and Dallas camps were added Sat urday. Next in line are the New Yorit Jets, Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles, who ope.i their training sites Tuesday.

All-Star Coach John McKay of Southern Californ said he would start practice t day and all sessions would b closed. McKay met with NFLPA re resentatives and said he lo them "we had to have o practices. If the strike is se tied one week before the gam the Dolphins know each otto and could get ready in sev days. We couldn't because,\ don't know one another." ; There was no picketing Evanston Sunday. Bui Al Page of the Minnesota Vikin said: "We're here to inform t All-Stars. We want to let the know what's going on. They' in the dark. "They have as much to ca (from the strike) if not mo than anybody else. They'll the stars of tomorrow in 't league and they stand to ben fit most from our efforts."
