TV MONITOR: "NIGHTLINE" EXAMINES SPORTS LABOR WOES
Published October 4, 1994
ABC's Nightline examined the labor disputes in pro sports. ABC's Dave Marash: "As more entertainment conglomerates buy sports franchises, players worry their bargaining leverage may be gone. And their old solution of revenue sharing, among players and owners, may now be obsolete." THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY's Stephen Bilafer: "This could be a milestone, a turning point for the sports industry." Ken Dryden said labor disputes will become commonplace: "I think we are closer to the beginning to all of this than we are to the end." ABC's Al Michaels: "If there is one word that sums up labor negotiations in sports these days, it is mistrust, or perhaps even distrust" ("Nightline," ABC, 10/3).
