Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett has failed to meet a deadline to repay about $107,000 owed to a suburban Dallas bank, the bank's attorney says. First City Bank of Richardson has asked a county constable to seize enough of Dorsett's property to satisfy the debt, said bank attorney Kenneth S. Carroll. Dorsett's agent, Witt Stewart of Los Angeles, said the bank debts would be paid by Monday before the constable could act.
In a separate case, the bank had Dorsett's 1983 Mercedes-Benz repossessed because Dorsett failed to make two car payments, Carroll said.
Stewart and Dorsett's lawyer, H. Allen Hill Jr., said the bank's actions do not reflect a re-emergence of Dorsett's financial troubles, which surfaced last year and included a $414,000 income tax debt that has been repaid . . .
Former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and Pittsburgh Press he would rather remain retired than play again for his former coach, Chuck Noll, ". . . knowing how he treated us when we could no longer win Super Bowls for him," the papers quoted Bradshaw as saying.
Bradshaw led the Steelers to four Super Bowl championships in a six-year span starting in 1974. He is now a color commentator for CBS Television.
Bradshaw said his sore arm, which forced his retirement after the 1983 season, had healed and that he might have considered attempting a comeback at the age of 37 if someone other than the Steelers owned his NFL rights.
"He [Noll] just doesn't appreciate the people he had," Bradshaw said. "To kick Franco [Harris] out, to kick L.C. [Greenwood] out and Joe Greene and myself -- like we absolutely didn't exist. It's just not the way to do it. That's no class . . . "
