Northwest ArVertÂ»cÂ» TIMES, Sunday, Seal, 8, 1974 . r*YÂ»TTIVILLt, ARKANSAS Texas Judge Will Settle Contract Feud HOUSTON AP) -- A stale district judge says he will decide Monday morning if defensive tackle John Matuszak can play for the World Football League Houston Texans. Judge Arthur Leslicr said Saturday, "I'll have some word on Monday morning." on a motion by the Houston Oilers seeking si temporary injunction stopping the 6-foot-8, 285-pound tackle from playing with the Texans. Matuszak walked out of the Oiler training camp and signed with the Texans on Aug. 28. He played five downs against the New York Stars of the WFL that night before being stopped by a temporary restraining or' der obtained by the Oilers. Attorneys for the Oilers argued at a hearing Friday that Matuszak should be temporarily enjoined from playing with his new team until a trial on the legality of the player's four- year Oiler contract could be held. Lawyers for both sides submitted briefs on their posi- - tions Saturday. fn his brief, Oiler attorney William R. Eckhardt said, "The obvious piirnose of the attorneys for the Houston Texans of the World Football League is to enable that league to continue to raid upon the ranks of the NFL players." Thomas McDade. attorney for Matuszak and the Texans, said the contract the player signed is unenforcible because Â· it Is too one-sided and is,"void and unenforcible as a matter Â·Â· of law as being in violation of the Texas anti-trust statutes." McDade said a decision by Judge Lesher refusing to grant the injunction would not affect all 26 NFL clubs, but only the two Texas clubs. The Houston Oilers and the Dallas Cowboys. "That's why we stayed ir state court and relied on the Texas anti-trust laws," McDade said. "Were not trying to disrupt the entire NFL." McDade in his brief satd the .standard NFL contract could conceivably be extended to any j s h Open profession, with, for example, away with students graduating from law school being required to sign up with one firm which drafted them if they wanted to practice their profession. McDade said the NFL. unlike baseball, does not have a blanket anti-trust law passed by the U.S. Congress, and even if they did, would still be subject to state anti-trust laws. In reply. Eckhardt. the Oiler lawyer said because of the unique nature of the NFL. with| teams in many cMfterent slates. . the league must have an exemption from state anti-trust laws to operate effectively.
