NFL SAYS NO TO REALIGNMENT, DECIDES TO SLOT EXPANSION TEAMS
Published November 3, 1994
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).
