    BANDO: I don't think its going to affect us too much. We were able to win a world series with it going on. I think now that we have had a whole winter to think about it and let it clear the air, I don't think there'll be any problem.



    REPORTER: Does all the hassling sometime tend to bring a Club together?



    BANDO: I think so. I think it has with our club. All this stuff about how we don't have any harmony - on the contrary we have a lot of harmony. We are a close-knit baseball club. What takes place is basically perhaps misunderstandings between the players and management.



    REPORTER: How would you contrast Dick Williams and Al Dark as manager?



    BANDO: Well. I would say Al is a little bit more relaxed right now, because he is just going to let us play. Whereas Dick was probably a little bit more vocal in his opinions and told you a little bit more what he felt you should do. Al is just letting you play ball. But I think it will get to the point that if Al feels you are going the wrong way he is going to stop you.

    Background: The Californian baseball team athletes, known as the Oakland A's won the major United States caneball championship -- The World Series -- last year. This spring they have won only seven out of fifteen games played, but the team is confident it will rediscover its winning streak when the season gets under way in carnest.

    The team is virtually unchanged, but Al Dark has replaced Dick Williams as manager. However, there have been numerous rumours of quarrels and disagreement within the team. Captain Sal Bando tried to assess the effect of these quarrels in an interview with Television News Incorporated reporter, Charles Amonson.
