TENSIONS HEIGHTEN BETWEEN NFL AND ITS OFFICIALS
Published September 13, 1994
In his halftime report during last night's "Monday Night Football" broadcast, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED's Peter King reported that NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will go to Chicago to intervene "in what has become a pretty nasty dispute between game officials and the NFL. The game officials are upset over their pension, they have threatened an October strike. The commissioner would not get involved if it were not serious. The [NFL] is even thinking about hiring replacement officials later this week" (ABC, 9/12).
