SBD/15/Leagues Governing Bodies

WOULD THE NHL REALLY GO THROUGH LOCKOUT NOW?

     ESPN's Keith Olberman: "Our sources tell us the latest
target date for the lockout is after the first week of the
season, on or about October 7th.  There is a bargaining session
set for Friday in New York" ("SportsCenter," 9/14).  NHL players
will be taking a set of proposals for a new collective bargaining
agreement.  The league wants to link revenues and salaries with
"some form of revenue-sharing."  Players want "nothing to do with
anything they say limits salaries."  NHL Commissioner Gary
Bettman has proposed a number of concepts, including a pyramid
payroll structure that would "slot salaries according to
percentages of team revenue" (Alan Adams, CANADIAN PRESS/OTTAWA
CITIZEN, 9/15).     FOX IMPACT:  NHLPA Exec Dir Bob Goodenow said
the Fox TV deal will have "some impact" on negotiations, "but to
what degree I don't know" (CP/OTTAWA CITIZEN, 9/15).
