A bunch of us take a great deal of delight in sticking it to Bruce Redman when ever his beloved Montreal Canadiens are beaten. But Wednesday night's 9-2 shellacking at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs supplied us with our greatest moment of many a year. while all the other guys were getting in their Redman was waiting for me. he was heard to the guy who picked the outcome of the National Football League quarter aren't and I guess he was right to a wanted to know how I could give anyone a bad time after my selections. You Washington over Pittsburgh dumping and Los Angeles destroying Dallas. The only one I got right was Miami over and even then I was a fourth and 27 as far as the final score went. This time things will be different. I can't see how I can be wrong. Not only do I have just two games to predict the outcome I happen to be an expert on the NFL. get ready to bet the grocery money in the opposite direc- tion because Miami Dolphins and Minnesota this Sunday advance to the National Football League final ex- Super Bowl 1974. I would be the first to admit the Super Bowl should be renamed Super Farce. It is about as exciting as watching Jerry Lewis trade punches with George Foreman. Just the the games that lead up to the Super in most are classics. This Sunday will be no different. This time around the four clubs Dallas Cowboys and Oakland are as close to parity as you will find.- There can be no overwhelming odds on either game. Not the way I see anyway. Of all the games last weekend the defending looked the most impressive. It almost appeared as though they could score anytime they pleased once they got their hands on the ball. has never been the case with the Dolphins. They play just well enough to win. It is always an all-out but Shula Don appears to have such control over his charges that he unleashes their power as he sees fit.

The Raiders were the only club to defeat the Dolphins when it counted during the season. Don't look for it though. The Dolphins are just too long on all round balance. In the Vikings Cowboys who knows better than Jim- the But he's no help. He says it is a toss-up. I like the Vikings in this game because of Bud Grant and only because of Grant. He has a greai defence but a not so hot offence. in a one-game I feel he is a better coach than Tom Landry and this should be the difference in a nose-to- nose struggle. Either look for Miami to repeat as Super Bowl cham- pions in yet another episode in the continuing football saga. Super Blow. Morton waiting on the sidelines DALLAS One of the most valuable cards held by coach Tom Landry of Dallas Cowboys may never be played in Sunday's National Football Conference title game here with Minnesota Vikings. Should Cowboy quarterback Roger Staubach get kayoed on one of his madcap Landry knows he can send in a nine-year veteran who is ca- pable of keeping the potent Dallas offence perking. Quarterback Craig Morton has quietly played out his role as a bench-sitter this asking only that he be traded at the earliest opportunity. Morton has seen duty only when the Cowboys were way when Staubach was in- or to hold the centre snaps for Toni Fritsch's extra- point and field-goal attempts. In the NFC semi-final playoff game against Los Angeles last Staubach suffered a stunning blow while scrambling. Morton directed the team for two plays while Staubach convinced Landry he was able to play.
