Gary performs surgery
By JERRY REED
Gary Davidson is apparently changing jobs. David
son an attorney by profession is starting his intern
ship as an obstretician. In fact Davidson is about
ready to make this first delivery of a new born.
You see Gary is trying to create yet another
professional football league. He is just one of many
folks that have come up with such a childess idea.
The way things have been going Davidson will have
to put a revolving door on the maternity ward.
Football is like unions on a small scale they are
alright but when they get big its all over. You can't
tell me that Frank Fitzsimmions could name
everyone of his members except Jimmy Hoffa and he
doesn't count. Holy Samuel Golpers just think of the
dues the people of this purposed league would have
to make to stay in good with Davidson.
Actually this is a pretty touchy situation but I
guess Gary knows what he's doing and is ready to
get a team to divide up in not only the United States
but world-wide as well. Davidson plans to include
teams from Latin America Canada Europe and
Asia in his new league. Maybe Davidson has the oral
persuasion to get his little league underway but I
wouldn't put him in the same class as Henry Clay.
This could be one of the biggest splits in history if
Davidson can put it off. The latest division of a
team came when Liz and Richard split their
diamonds in the back of a Lincoln-Mercury.
HOW WAS THAT?
This new league is supposed to be a real show-stop-
per. Evidently Davidson doesn't think that the
National Football League is exciting enough. Perhaps
he will try some new gimmics to attract fans to his
performance. I can just set Groucho duck-walking up
and down the aisles selling popcorn while asking
everyone if they have seen a blonde honking a horn
between harp lessons.
"The National Football League has been very suc
cessful. They are established now. But we are going
to try to loosen everybody up a little bit provide a
bright new look to the sport" commented Davidson.
He says that the new league will try to avoid direct
competition with the stronger NFL and Canadian
Football League by playing weekdays in most cases
now that's pretty smart.
Davidson says possible locations for the inaugural
season (purposed for 1974) will include New York
Los Angeles Toronto Boston Mexico City Chicago
Cleveland Milwaukee Detroit and Honolulu.
ITS TIME TO STOP
Back in 1919 the National Football League got star
ted and then expanded into bigger things. Then came
the American Football League and eventually the
present professional league. This is fine but that
should be the limit.
If football continues to grow it could be in as
much danger as basketball seems to be right now. A
lot of folks could loose some money and perhaps Mr.
Davidson doesn't realize this situation.
Look at the American Basketball Association how
many teams are still around since the early days of
the league how many franchises really made it?
Remember the New Jersey Americans the Minnesota
Muskies Anaheim Amigos or the New Orleans Buc
caneers just to name a few.
Former Kentucky basektball coach Adolf Rupp
stated that the N.B.A. should take the top teams in
the A.B.A. (about four) and put them into their
league. Johnny Kerr former Notre Dame cage coach
wanted to start another league in basketball and in
clude some of the towns that are two embarrassing
to mention. Next tning you know they will have
teams in such towns as Perkins Corner Oklahoma or
Butcher Hollow Kentucky in the future.
Perhaps Mr. Davidson should think a little bit
more about changing jobs because his expected baby
is a bit premature.

It was the kind of drive
which in past seasons has

and though the jury is still
out on its lasting effects this
time there is no question of
its impact Saturday.
