Joe Scibelli, a standout offensive lineman with the Rams for 15 years and one of the team's most popular players, died Wednesday in Boston of cancer. He was 52. Scibelli was a fixture at right guard from 1961 to 1975 and seldom missed a game because of injury. He was part of a veteran offensive line that included tackle Charlie Cowan, who played with Scibelli for 15 years, and guard Tom Mack, who was with the Rams from 1966 through 1974.

Why does The Times insist on giving front-page coverage to the likes of Lawrence Taylor, whose second career was in drug mismanagement? At the same time, Tom Mack, who used his engineering degree from the University of Michigan for post-football success and is a real role model, hardly gets a sentence. D.F. REEVES Rancho Palos Verdes Shame on the Los Angeles Times for its abysmal coverage of Tom Mack's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Perhaps the apparent malaise toward this milestone is symptomatic of L.A.'s blase attitude toward the potential return of pro football to our city.

It was with great sadness that I read of the death of former Ram Joe Scibelli. In these days of so-called "great" players, it was refreshing to recall one of the true iron men of the '60s and '70s. Joe didn't cry when he was hurt, he didn't want to renegotiate, he didn't bad-mouth his teammates and he actually wanted to play every day. Goodby, Joe. Thanks for all the dedication you showed us.

The Rams honored 24 players from their 40 years in Southern California with a pregame reception and halftime ceremony at Anaheim Stadium Saturday night. Owner Georgia Frontiere presented each player with an engraved brass plate. The turnout included all but five of the living members of the 40-year team selected by readers of The Times--Merlin Olsen, Jon Arnett, Les Richter, Eddie Meador and Eric Dickerson.

Played 14 seasons with the Rams. Only Merlin Olsen (15), Charlie Cowan (15) and Joe Scibelli (15) played longer. Started in 184 games. Played in 202 Ram games. Only Olsen (208) and Cowan (206) played in more. Played in 201 consecutive games, a Ram record. Missed first game of Ram career last Dec. 9 against Houston after playing 201 straight. That back injury forced him to retire on Aug. 27, 1985.

Bob Waterfield, who led the Rams to National Football League championships in Cleveland (1945) and Los Angeles (1951), was named in three categories to the Rams' 40th anniversary all-time team, chosen by Times readers. In a vote of 5,229 readers during July, Waterfield was selected as the Rams' all-time quarterback, kicker and punter. Waterfield received 1,921 votes in the quarterback category, beating Norm Van Brocklin with 1,399 and Roman Gabriel with 836.

What I will remember most about the Los Angeles Rams: The Bob Waterfield-Norm Van Brocklin quarterback controversy. . . . Jack Youngblood playing with a broken leg in Super Bowl XIV against the Pittsburgh Steelers. . . . The helmets. . . . "Free Football for Kids" at the Coliseum. . . . Gypsy Boots and Pom-Pom Mom. . . . The Fearsome Foursome of Deacon Jones, Merlin Olsen, Lamar Lundy and Roosevelt Grier. . . . Chuck Knox's efficiency the first time around. . . .

Quarterbacks Roman Gabriel and Bill Munson played for the same pro team in 1965. Sure, they both were on the Rams, but they also played for the Wildcats, which was a pro team for about an hour on a "Perry Mason" episode (Friday at 4 a.m. on KTTV Channel 11). Also on the team in "The 12th Wildcat" are other fresh-faced and thick-necked Rams: guards Joe Scibelli and Don Chuy, tight end Marlin McKeever and linebacker Cliff Livingston.

When it comes to playing football, the Rams are pretty good. When it comes to playing hardball, nobody does it better. Offensive tackle Jackie Slater ended his 28-day holdout Wednesday and reported to Rams Park. The six-time Pro Bowl selection didn't get his contract re-negotiated, however. He obviously didn't get the trade he demanded three weeks ago, either.
