The procedure up t« now has been tot a player to sign for one year, with a clause in the cMtfact that binds the man to th* same tearn for the second year. Now the owners probably will stretch the point and grant contracts for two years and up. The current imbroglio started when Pete Gogblak, the Hungarian-born placekicker, signed with the New York Giants of the NFL after playing out his option with Buffalo of the AFL. Gogolak reportedly signed for three yean at $31,000 a year. Ralph Wilson, owner of the Buffalo club and president of the AFL, Said, "We would like :A see Gogolak's contract, as fair as the Giants are concerned, •escinded."
