Veteran cornerback Everson Walls walked out on the Dallas Cowboys Thursday and said he will boycott Monday night's nationally televised season opener against the New York Giants unless his contract demands are met. Walls, 26, whose nine interceptions led the NFL last season, was at practice Thursday but said it would be his last until the Cowboys fulfilled a 1983 promise to renegotiate the 1986 and 1987 years of his existing five-year contract if he met specified performance goals.

No wonder Everson Walls is feeling like a kid again. After all, age is relative . . . even in the NFL. Last year, the 30-year-old cornerback played for the Dallas Cowboys, a team that had only one starter older than him. If he had stayed with the Cowboys this year, he would have been the third-oldest player on their roster. But Dallas, obviously wrapped up in a serious youth movement, left Walls unprotected after the 1989 season.

Of all the indignities, the Rams found themselves officially eliminated from the playoffs Monday evening because of, well, a big toe. Cowboy cornerback Everson Walls' right big toe, to be exact. The same big toe that apparently grazed the tips of fair territory on arguably the most important defensive play of the Ram 29-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. That toe. Replay fans will long debate this toe thing. Was Walls in or out?

Owners of a restaurant near the Dallas Cowboys' headquarters in Irving, Texas, are pleading with team owner Jerry Jones to rescind a ban that keeps players out of the eatery. The owners, including former Cowboy stars Tony Dorsett and Everson Walls, say they're losing $50,000 a month because of the ban and will sue Jones if he doesn't respond. The cafe used to be a popular hangout for players, and that in turn brought in customers.

Re "Record-setting Grambling coach made civil rights part of game plan," obituary, April 5 Thank you for the excellent article on our beloved Coach Eddie Robinson. His love for "Dear Old Grambling," his family, players and fans put a small black university on a worldwide map. BETTYE FONTENOT San Pedro The writer is president of the Los Angeles chapter of Grambling University Alumni. With today's "blame everyone else" mentality, Everson Walls' quote about Robinson should be on a plaque in every classroom and office: "Look for a way to succeed, not a reason to fail."
