The major charges in Eric Dickerson's $12.5-million lawsuit against agent Jack Rodri have been dismissed by a National Football League Players Assn. arbitrator. According to the 11-point decision issued last Friday by Roger P. Kaplan, Rodri will pay Dickerson, formerly a Ram running back, about $25,000 in damages. In the key issue, Kaplan ruled that Dickerson was not entitled to damages for three failed real estate investments Rodri made for the running back.

John Robinson retired from summit diplomacy Monday to concentrate on coaching the Rams, with a parting message to both sides in the Eric Dickerson dispute: Knock off the nonsense. "We're here doing our job," Robinson said. "I think it's important that Eric be here doing his job, also."
