''If a player is in the middle of his career he's got other choices. Dermie's got no other choices other than stick with us, stick with the attempt to keep on going, or retire. All those things are up to him.'' - Sydney Swans Australian Football League coach Ron Barassi summing up the prospects of his veteran recruit Dermott Brereton who was suspended for seven weeks on Wednesday for breaking an opponent's jaw. It was Brereton's second seven-week suspension of the season. He stood on another player's head in March. ''The Samoans played well but they met us on a night when we were awesome.'' - Australian captain Phil Kearns after their record 73-3 rugby union rout of Western Samoa. Nine different players scored tries for the Wallabies. ''To whom do I dedicate this win? To me, if that is alright with you . . .'' - Formula One driver Gerhard Berger, after winning the German Grand Prix. ''This is absolutely an all-time low in my understanding of the negotiations in this industry. It may be predictable or understandable or go over with the public, but it won't go over with the players. It's one thing to play with the players; it's another to play with their wives and children.'' - Eugene Orza, the number two official of the Major League Baseball Players Association hitting out at the owners who failed to make a payment of about US$8 million to the players' pension fund. ''Transfer fees are becoming far too high and the salaries paid to the top players seem immoral to a certain extent. It does worry me that money is beginning to dictate far too much.'' - Sir Bert Millichip, chairman of the English Football Association on the evils of money. ''Yes, he was a little naive in his dealings at Tottenham, but from a football point of view he was the choice of the players and the public, and above all the choice of all his peers. The players like him because he's one of them. They find him easy to talk to and I firmly believe that if we are going to get back to our rightful place we couldn't have found a better man to take us there.'' - Sir Bert on new England manager Terry Venables. ''Rather than struggle, I prefer to try and throw money at the problems to try to solve them. It is in my character to fight fire with fire. These signings are my way of hitting back at our friends at Lancaster Gate.'' - Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar admitting he had been spurred on by anger over the FA's punishment for making illegal loans to players. Sugar has opened his cheque book out and signed German striker Jurgen Klinsmann and Romanian Ilie Dumitrescu for a total of GBP4.5 million.
