O’Malley figures to have an easier time selling his product if the competition is lessened by the Padres moving to Washington, To make pay TV popular O’Malley would have to pipe his games south where the population is. • • * And not only that. . .

BUD GRANT By BRUCE LOWITT HOUSTON (AP) -Minnesota Vikings know exactly what they’ve got to do in order to have a chance at capturing Sunday’s Super Bowl game. The only problem is, they won't be able to do it. All the Vikings have to do in the National Football League finale is stop Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris. Don’t count on it. Minnesota might be able to concentrate on one and get away with it, but that would let the other one run wild. There’s a sneaking suspicion here that Bob Griese, looking into the teeth of Minnesota’s run-oriented defence, will try to completely cross up the Vikings by going to a wide-open passing game. It all depends on how healthy Paul Warfield is. If the hamstring problem doesn’t slow him down, look for more than the usual number of bombs. But if War-Held is the least bit hobbled, watch for a proliferation of short stuff to Marlin Briscoe, Jim Mandich and Jim Kiick. AMDY CAPP Super Bowl VIII ready, Dolphins six-point pick HOUSTON {AP)-Miarai's mechanical DoljAins, hoping for strong legs for receiver Paul Warfield, are six-point favorites to defeat Minnesota Vikings in the eighth Super Bowl football game Sunday. Kickoff time is 11:30 a.m. EST, at Rice Stadium, where the Astroturf surface may be damp from week-long rain. The Dolphins, who depend on Warfield’s long-range catching ability to open the ■ defence for runners Can Vikings stop both Miami backs? There’s no question that Fran Tarkenton will have the Vikings airborne most of the day. Rookie Chuck Foreman can be brilliant but against the likes of Manny Fernandez, Bill Stanfill, Nick Buoniconti and the rest of Miami's defensive front wall, he’ll need more support than Oscar Reed and Ed Marinaro can give him. Tarkenton will wow the fans with frantic scrambling in his own backfield. That’s what will make things interesting, but eventually his overloaded passing game will backfire.    - What it all really comes down to is that the method will beat the madness—the Dolphins, old hands at the fine art of football surgery and familiar faces in the Super Bowl, will easily cope with the furious defence and frenetic offence of the Vikings, And a year from now, when Miami goes after an unprecedented third straight Super Bowl victory, the line in the NFL record book will read; SUPER BOWL Vni Miami 30 Minnesota 17 ' Lary Csonka and Mercury Morris, expect to see their flashy receiver in action despite what was called a hamstring pull suffered in practice Wednesday. The injury was kept secret for a day before coach Don Shula revealed it. The Dolphins’ stock dived until team trainer Larry Gardner noted there was no swelling and said Warfield would be ready Sunday. The Vikings, more of a passing team, sailed into the Super Bowl on the throwing of Fran Tarkenton. They must stop the violent running game of the Dolphins and shake receivers free to get Tarkenton a target. Their chore borders on the impossible—Miami has won 21 of 23 games in the last two seasons with a professional, cool, calculating approach to Shula’s demands. WIN EXPECTED “We expected to win,” Csonka said after the Dolphins’ 27-10 playoff victory over Oakland Raiders in which quarterback Bob Griese threw six passes. It could be a dull game as most Super Bowls have beei? because no one likes to take a chance in the big one. The defences could make it a virtual draw were it not for the unstoppable Csonka who has gained more than 1,000 yards three straigt seasons. Miami defensive tackle Manny Fernandez, one of the stars of the Dolphins’ 14>7 Super Bowl victory over Washington Redskins last year, had what was termed a nigh fever Friday and ilid not practice. But flu bugs have flirted with several players this week, including Csonka, and there was little doubt in the Dolphin camp that Fernandez would perform. The game will be televised to an audience of possibly 75 million in the United States,. Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, ' Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Germany, Austria, England and American servicemen. GAME BRINGS MONEY For the broadcast rights, CBS paid $2.75 million. The network will charge up to $10,000 a minute for commercials. Some 1,500 writers and radio and television reporters will cover the game. Super Bowl week in Houston has turned out to be Mardi Gras and New Year's Eve rolled into one. The total dollar flow was expected to exceed the $16 million Los Angeles realized last year. The NFL threw a party Friday night on the floor of Houston’s Astrodome. The party, which included a masive buffet dinner featuring roast pork on a spit and Mexican food, cost more than $55,000. 'The game is being held in somewhat antiquated Rice Stadium instead of the Astrodome because it seats 20,000 more people. The Stadium was a sellout at 72,000 seats. There were PHONE 328-ST'-)8 180? 10 ST N reports of scalpers asking $150 for a $15 ticket. Both teams scheduled hour workouts today. The players were to retire to their wifeless hotel rooms where they were to meet with their coaches briefly tonight. Wives were quartered in separate hotels. Oddsmaker Jimmy The Greek Snyder favored the Dolphins by six points. He was putting his mmey on Dolphin kicker Garo Yepremian who has booted all 38 converts and 25 to 37 field goals for 113 points this season. Mihnesota coach Bud Grant said his Xlcker, Fred Cox, should get 10 more yards distance because of the sure ar* tificial turf in Rice Stadium. He said Cox’s distance had suffered in the latter part of the season because of the unpredictable, frozen surfaces in Bloomington, Minn. Cox bad 96 points this year on 33 converts and 21 of 3S field goals. Bulldogs, Lakers on top. Cougars get past LCl Rams The Winston Churchill Bulldogs and Stirling Lakers chalked up their sixth straight victories in Southwest Conference Boys’ Basketball League action Friday night. The Bulldogs scored an easy 56-40 victory over the Picture Butte Sugar Kings while the Lakers dropped the Vauxhall Vikings 41-33. . Four players led the Bulldogs to their sixth win in as many starts last night. Perry Mlrkovicb paced the attack with 15 points while Randy Rae chipped in with 14. Kendall Duce and Derek Redman aided the cause with 12    points apiece. Leonard Nieboer managed 10 points in a losing cause. Meanwhile Scott Perrett hooped 14 points and kept the Lakers undefeated thus far this season. Allan Friesen replied for Vauxhall with 16 points. In another boys’ tilt, the Milk River Comets edged the Fort Macleod Flyers 59-51. Anthony Miller and Gordon Ehlert notched 15 points apiece for the winners while Chris Donahue swished 18 points and Jack Lemarie IS for the losers. The Taber Trotters defeated the Cbaldale Gaels 44-33 behind Bruce Francis’ 22-point performance. Teammate Tim Jesperson added 12 points in the win while Richard Boras notched 13    points in a losing effort. In junior boys’ varsity play, Winston Churchill edged Picture Butte 44-42, Stirling dumped Vauxhall 46-34, Fort Macleod slipped past Milk River 33-32 and Coaldale dropped Taber 42-30. In the only girls’ Southwest Conference game reported, Coaldale Larks defeated Taber 3fr-22 for their third straight win of the seasm. Bonnie Stanko scored 14 points for Coaldale while Debbie Jensen hooped eight for Vauxhall. The Cardston Cougars grabbed a share of first place in the Southern Alberta High School “A” Boys' Basketball League by defeating the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams 58-45 Friday night.
