Commissioner Stuart McMillan takes on an interesting case as a young kid who acted as a gofer for star quarterback Don Stroud of the fictional San Francisco Hawks winds up dead. Who would possibly want to kill this kid, but he's got a new motorcycle which is a nice ride for someone living on chump change.

Despite a few unsuccessful passes at Sally McMillan, Rock Hudson does take a personal interest in this murder actually hoping that the star quarterback Stroud is not guilty. He's not lacking any suspects either with this cast. It also turns out the kid was taking bets for a bookie who doubles as a hairdresser.

In the end an attempted poisoning that Susan St.James accidentally uncovers at the cost of the team's two real live hawk mascots is what tells the tale. Not a bad episode, but far from the best.
