Although nobody's saying so, expansion is expected to be a major topic when the CFL's executive committee meets Thursday. Toronto Argonauts have gone on record as the prime proponents of such a move and British Columbia Lions are running some interference against detractors of the scheme. The Argos, who proposed the move at meetings last November, and the Lions have been the league's top-drawing clubs and have benefitted least from the CFL's gate-equalization plan. Argo owner John Baasett, who initiated the move last year and then withdrew a motion dealing with expansion, has at least left the door open for future consideration of the idea. Bassett says gate equalization has taxed the Toronto treasury and the Eastern Football Conference club has paid more into the plan than the other clubs combined over the last five years.   PRODUCE MORE REVENUE . He said in a recent interview that franchises in New York, Detroit, Seattle and Tampa, Fla., would produce the revenue eaten by the gate-equalization fund. Jackie Parker, general manager of the Lions, said Tuesday his club favors consideration of expansion. "Our idea, is that we might take a good look at it if it would mean more revenue," he said after a meeting of general managers. But he hasn't got much support from the other Western Football Conference clubs. "Nothing has changed," said Norm Kimball, general manager of Edmonton Eskimos, "We don't think it would work. "We voted against it for that reason, not because we' wanted to vote against Bassett." NFL IN MONTREAL? National Football League expansion into Canada is also being bandied about. Montreal has been mooted as a possibility because a modern stadium would be there after the 1976 summer Olympics. But Earl Lunsford, general manager of Winnipeg Blue Bombers, doesn't exactly quake at the thought. "The reasons for that not happening outweigh those that it might happen," he said. People that I've talked to in the NFL say there is no chance of expanding to Canada." He added that Montrealers would rather watch CFL games than the NFL products. - Ralph Sazio, general manager of Hamilton Tiger-Cats, said the NFL needs Canadian football because of that anti - trust thing." Meanwhile, the Lions got a large share of the early choices in the annual draft of Canadian college talent as 75 players were picked in nine rounds. Parker had five selections in the first two rounds as a result of trades including the first pick of Brian Sopatyk, a six-foot, two-inch, 245-pound guard from Saskatoon, Sask., who performed for Boise State last year. This was the first time Canadians Who played their college ball at American schools were eligible for the Canadian draft. They are still classed as non-imports. Four players were selected in the first round and 15 were taken in all. Ottawa Rough Riders had the slimmest pickings as general manager Frank Clair traded his first-round choice and passed after the fourth round. �His first choice was Bruce McMillan, a six-foot, 200-pound running back from Mount Allison. Sazio, who traded away his first two selections but had Montreal's second-round choice, seemed happy with Ken Hass, a linebacker from Moorhead State. "He was the man I had at the top of my list. If I'd had the first choice of all, Hass would have been my man." J. I. Albrecht of Montreal also was delighted. He had two first-round picks and got the two players who topped his list-defensive back Pierre Le? febvre of St. Mary's and punter Jack Schwartzberg of Alberta. The Argonauts got four of the players rated in their top five and, following B.C. in the first found, grabbed Barry Finlay, a 6-3, 215-pound quarterback. "At this stage, Finlay is ahead of the development of Russ Jackson at a comparative Call Metreveli a Russian and lie gets most upset LONDON (AP) - "Why do the newspapers insist on calling me a Russian?" said Alexander Metreveli, top tennis star of the Soviet Union. "I'm not a Russian. I'm a Georgian. "I am a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. But to call me a Russian is to make the same mistake as those who refer to Scotsmen and Welshmen as Englishmen." Western European tennis fans make no such distinctions. When they heard that Metreveli was stepping into the big money league and competing on Lamar Hunt's World Championship Tennis circuit, they said: "The Russians are coming." FIRST ON TOUR Metreveli is the first Soviet player to appear in Hunt's tour. It makes him a Communist in a capitalist world. He won about $12,000 in prize money in 1972 and could go well above that figure in 1973. But there's one basic difference between Metreveli and the other stars in his WCT group-men such as Ken Rosewall of Australia, Arthur Ashe and Marty Riessen of the United States and Tom Okker of The Netherlands. Instead of paying his winnings into a bank account he hands it all over to the Soviet Tennis Federation. Metreveli, 28, is ranked No. 1 in the Soviet Union for the sixth straight year. During those six years he has gradually been doing better and better in world competition. He got into the 64-man WCT circuit as an llth-hour replacement when Joaquin Loyo-Mayo of Mexico pulled out. Russian is his second language. He was born in Tbilisi and grew up speaking Georgian. He now has his home in Moscow. He really reached the. top bracket at Wimbledon in i972. In a,field weakened by the absence of Lamar Hunt's 32 contract pros, Metreveli was 'Begs to differ seeded No. 8 and reached the quarter-finals. He goes around the circuit with his coach, Sergei Dmitriev. Metreveli has his eye on his coach all the time when he is playing. When he loses a point he almost always turns to Dmitriev gesticulating and explaining how it happened. Dmitriev never looks back at him but just sits at the side of the court writing. He nGtes every rally, plots the whole match. "That Russian boy really is playing well," said Ashe after he had beaten Metreveli in two tie-breaks at London's Royal Albert Hall. "I'm not a Russian," said Metreveli politely. time," said Argo GM John Barrow. "He's a good athlete with good speed." Finlay comes from McMaster, the alma mater of Jackson, the former Rough Rider quarterback. The Lions also picked Slade Willis, a 6-1, 174-pound receiver from Drake, in the first round and Edmonton's two first-round picks were halfback Dave McGillis from Calgary and quarterback Wayne Allison from Waterloo Lutheran. STAMPS DRAFT QB Calgary Stampeders also chose a quarterback in Mike Logan from Eastern Michigan and Saskatchewan Roughriders selected defensive halfback Art Edgson of Idaho State in the first round. The Bombers, who didn't pick until the second round, chose linebacker Dale Potter from Ottawa. In effect, Tuesday's draft started at the third round because each club was permitted to protect two players under the league's territorial provisions. B.C. and Edmonton protected three players as a result of trades with Ottawa and Montreal, respectively, who protected only one player. The other clubs had two protected when the lists came out Jan. 10.
