DETROIT FREE PRESSWEDNESDAY, AUG., 24, 1983 5D Sparky wonH aooui i w ARLINGTON, Tex. - Manager Sparky Anderson says it's too late for him to get angry and raise the clubhouse roof if his team plays poorly now. "What good would it do to get angry in the middle of August?" he asked. "You'd better get angry in April and May and June and July. But if they don't know what they have to do by now, it don't do any good to get angry because you ain't got a chance, anvwav." r " s - I Anderson Anderson said Chet Lemon is "the best center fielder in the league now" after Lemon's catch of a Larry Parrish drive Monday night. "I think of all the balls he's got to this year . . . He's better than (Cesar) Geronimo was when he played for me at Cincinnati." mm 51 Pan Am Games Medals Lost CARACAS, Venezuela - (UPI) -Countries and athletes censured at the IX Pan American Games: Total Medals Lost - Cuba (6), Canada (5), U.S. (3), Chile (3), Nicaragua (2), Venezuela (2).

Lions drop Perry for knee failure By CURT SYLVESTER Free Press Sports Writer The deal for Rod Perry and a third-round draft choice for holdout tight end David Hill isn't quite the sweet deal the Lions were hoping to get. Perry, who had started every game for the Los Angeles Rams for the past three years and was in camp with the Rams this summer, failed his physical examination Monday with the Lions. As a result, Perry, a two-time Pro Bowl player, will be returned to the Rams; Hill, a one-time Pro Bowler, will stay with the Rams, and the Lions will receive a third-round draft choice next spring. The Lions did receive two concessions since the deal fell through. Instead of waiting until 1985 for the third round draft choice, the Lions will get it in 1984. And if former Ram defen sive tackle Mike Fanning makes Rod Perry the Lions' squad, the Lions will owe Los Angeles a seventh- rouno. draft choice instead of a fifth. A weak knee proved to be Perry's downfall in the thorough and meticulous physical examination the Lions give all of their players. "We knew there was a concern about the knee," Tim Rooney, director of player personnel, said. "He had had that knee in high school. It was a problem in college and he had missed some practice time (with the Rams). It was a gradual deterioration process. Hill passed his examination with the Rams. f HFL report Free Press Staff end Wire Reports ATLANTA: Tackle Mike Kenn agreed to end his 31-day holdout and report to the Falcons' camp Tuesday.

The Broncos trimmed two more players Irom the roster Tuesday to bring the club to the 60-player limit. A club spokesman said cornerback Victor Heflln was released and guard Maomao Niko was placed on the club's injured reserve list. LA RAMS: Right guard Dennis Harrah, who pulled a hamstring muscle in Saturday night's exhibition against New England, will miss at least one game. Harrah will be replaced by Russ Bollnger a seven-year pro acquired from the Lions in Friday night's exhibition against San Diego. PHILADELPHIA: Seven players, including six-year running back Billy Campfield, were released by the Eagles. PITTSBURGH: Former Michigan State quarterback John Leister, a free agent with the Steelers, made the next-lo-last roster cut Tuesday . . . The Steelers returned running back Curtis Brown to the Buffalo Bills. He was acquired last Wednesday in a trade for a future, undisclosed draft choice. The deal was conditional because Brown had a knee problem. SAN FRANCISCO: John Choma, a lineman who played both offense and defense in two seasons with the 49ers, was among the players waived Tuesday as the team reduced its roster to 60 players. Receivers hope recession is over LIONS, from Page 1D They aren't looking for a reversal in 1983, but they think a little modification, a little more balance, would boost receiving corps morale and make the Lion offense one of the league's best. Each remembers: That the Lion offense last year ranked last in the conference in completion percentage, interception percentage and yards per pass play. That of 135 receptions a season ago, seven receivers wide receivers and tight ends shared 73. (Thompson had 17, Norris three and Nichols eight. David Hill, traded last week, led with 22.) Four backs, led by Sims with 34, gathered the rest. That when the Lions went to their wide receivers and tight ends, they scored; those players accounted for 1 1 of the the Lions' 19 touchdowns last season and 11 of the Lions' 12 passing touchdowns. The Lions wondered aloud last season if they were attacking defenses the way they should. It appeared the idea was to get the ball to Sims any way possible, and shorter, quicker passes to backs were less likely to be intercepted. "And when the rush was on," Thompson said, "it was a lot easier for the quarterback to dump the ball off to backs. That was Marchibroda's style. And I think the two-quarterback system we used enhanced that." Marchibroda describes his system as, "Playing good, sound football with a willingness to gamble. That means the receiver does his job on each running play and is ready when his turn comes to make the big one." YOU'D THINK the addition of fullback James Jones, a strong blocking back who caught 68 passes for five touchdowns during his college career at Florida, would prompt more passes to backs and more runs by Sims. The Lions' three exhibition games, however, have raised the receiving corps' optimism. Eight wide receivers and tight ends have caught 37 passes for two touchdowns. The backs have caught 17 passes. i - Homa's tepee - J r ii Ha b Oi m l im 0i ii O
