NFL NEWS & NOTES: PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK'S FALL MEETINGS
Published October 28, 1994
1999 SUPER BOWL: NFL owners attending the next week's fall meetings in Chicago will determine whether Candlestick Park or Joe Robbie Stadium will be the host stadium for the 1999 Super Bowl. David McIntosh, Chair of the South Florida Super Bowl 1999 Host Committee, said that the vote "will be close": "But we have a great bid. We've got better weather, a better stadium, a better bid all around" (Armando Salguero, MIAMI HERALD, 10/28). ROONEY FIGHTS FOR REALIGNMENT: Steelers Owner Dan Rooney said he will make a "last ditch" attempt to sell the owners on a realignment plan when the group meets in Chicago on Tuesday: "This is our last chance to do it. If we don;t do it now, we're not going to realign for a long time" (Ira Miller, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 10/28). League sources said yesterday it seems unlikely the 28 owners will agree on any realignment (Leonard Shapiro, WASHINGTON POST, 10/28). NEW DRUG POLICY: The NFL and the NFLPA have agreed on a new drug policy that emphasizes treatment and rehabilitation rather than detection and discipline. The policy, which also stresses confidentiality for players in treatment, will be formally announced some time before league owners gather in Chicago next Tuesday for their annual meeting. The policy does not address the issue of steroid use (Leonard Shapiro, WASHINGTON POST, 10/28).
