TV MONITOR: "NIGHTLINE" EXAMINES SPORTS LABOR WOES

     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).
