Seattle got the 23th NFL franchise, carrying with it the leallhy initiation tab of $16 mil- ion, from the owners Tuesday, [ind joins Tampa, added in April. Both teams are scheduled to begin playing in 1976 al- :hough that timetable could be moved up one year, according :o Rozelle. Seattle was selected over Phoenix. Honolulu and Mern- ihis but the losers aren't out of he NFL picture yet. The commissioner said their bids will remain under consideration. "I wouldn't expect another city to be added this week," said Rozelle, but he added the expansion committee would ex- ilore it. "Future expansion is a total- open deck," he said. "We ire not restricting ourselves rom going into any ciity, including current. NFL cities. There are no limitations on the cities considered. New York, Chicago ancl Los Angeles were in our original list as NFL cities to be considered for acldt lional franchises. 11 Two of those cities have franchises in the \VFL and the t h i r d . Los Angeles, is home base for the WFL'j Southern California club. "Going from 2' lo 30 clubs is probably the next logical step," said liozclle. Asked if he would favor moving into a city that already had a WPL team. Hozelle said, "Sure, I might be. It depends on the circumstances. Seattle currently lias a new domed stadium u n d e r construction. "It is the 10th largest market in the country ancl falls into the NFL schedule for the largest cities in the country," said"the commissioner. "It is the only )ar of the country in which we lidn't have a franchise." liozclle said that the vote to icccpt Seattle, Hie lone city recommended by the expansion committee, was not unanimous. He said the Seattle and Tarn- i franchises might not he ilacetl in any conference at nice. "We're keeping our op- ions open," he said. "We might float them for a year or '.wo.

Like Tampa, Seattle interests may now formally apply to the league for the franchise. In Memphis, Mayor Wycth Chandler said that the failure oi the National Football League to grant the city an expansion franchise Tuesday justifies an earlier decision to welcome a World Football League team. Siderowf Upset By Young Scol Golfer MUIRFIELD. Scotland (AP) -- Jim Gabrielson seemed sur- riscd when someone suggested _.e might win the 1974 British Amateur Golf Championship. The U.S. Walker Cup star rom Atlanta, paused for a moment and then modestly said: 'Oh, 1 don't know. I've been liaying quite well recently. But don't know." Gabrielson was suddenly the big hope of the United States ifler reaching Wednesday's third round with an explosive surge of five birdies to beat Scotland's Morrison Zuill 6 and 5. The reputation of the seeding committee of the royal and ancient club has been blown away on Muirfield's windy 6,862-yard par-71 links. Experts had predicted Dick Siderowf would go into the record books by winning this match play prize for the second straight year. But a virtually unknown Scot, 25-year-old Mike Miller, upset the top-seedec stockbroker from Westport Conn., by one hole in the sec ond round. Another highly fancied con tender was Neville Sundelsen, the seeded South African cham pion. who arrived here with a big r e p u t a t i o n . Snndelsen drifted to disaster in a big gale on the opening day, losing 6 and 5 to Britain's Alan Lidrile. . Scottish champion Ian Hut cheson, who was seeded, also went out in the first round. Gabrielson f a c e d Williair Tronibley of Dallas in an all American third-round match.
