Bryant opted to challenge -
Rozelle Rule on 'principle' . --i--
By The Associated Press
FULLERTON, Calif. - Cullen Bryant said yesterday that 1-.
Detroit Coach Rick Forzano told him he "wanted me to play
fullback for them," and although the offer was tempting he de-
cided to fight his award to the Lions under the Rozelle Rule be- 4sktAv,, '"<
cause of tthe principle of the thing.
The giant running back said that after National Football
League Commissioner Pete Rozelle awarded him to the Lions, "I
was in a state of shock and confusion."
Instead, Bryant called his attorney, Ed Masry, "to see if
legally there was any way I could prohibit this action by Rozelle."
U. S. Dist, Court Judge Warren J. Ferguson, who Wednes-
day granted a temporary restraining order, will hear argu-
ments Aug. 12 on a permanent injunction.
If a permanent injunction is awarded, Bryant will probably
be able to play for the Rams this year while the case winds -
through the courts. If Ferguson fails to issue the injunction, Bry-
ant would have to report to the Lions.
Bryant, never a star in his first two years, was awarded to
the Lions as compensation for Ron Jessie, the wide receiver who
played out his option. It was the first time an active player haderln i a e
bee set 1another club s ec mpensation for a player who be- -
came a free agent and signed with another team. ~ .
"In my opinion, Mr. Rozelle made an error in judg-
ment," said Masry. "Detroit is being rewarded for its own -
incompetence. Jessie played out his option because he wasn't
being paid enough - about $16,000. So he leaves and they All
are rewarded for not paying him enough and at the same
time my client is punished."
He said Bryant is making $35,000 and if talent were gauged on -
salary alone, "the Lions would be getting twice the player they
Bryant said he first heard he had been awarded to the Lions
last Friday. "I was told to report to Coach Chuck Knox' office,
and my first thought was it was something serious, like a death
in the family, because they told me not to get dressed. So I went
there in my shorts-no shoes or shirt or anything.
"After they told me and I had talked with the general phAP Photo
