NFL SAYS NO TO REALIGNMENT, DECIDES TO SLOT EXPANSION TEAMS

     NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue yesterday placed the
Jacksonville Jaguars into the AFC Central and the Carolina
Panthers into the NFC West, both for the '95 season only.
Tagliabue also appointed a 10-man committee on realignment to be
chaired by AFC President Lamar Hunt of the Chiefs and NFC
President Wellington Mara of the Giants.  The committee will come
up with a recommendation on realignment for the 1996 season and
beyond.  Tagliabue expects a vote in March  (Leonard Shapiro,
WASHINGTON POST, 11/3).  But Bucs VP Rich McKay doubts there will
be realignment:  "It's certainly on life support" (Pat Yasinskas,
TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/3).
