TENSIONS HEIGHTEN BETWEEN NFL AND ITS OFFICIALS

     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).
