SPORT SUMMIT SURVEYS EXECUTIVES ON LABOR DISPUTES
Published December 1, 1994
According to a survey of 20 sports industry executives conducted by the International Sport Summit, the NFL and NBA appear to be the biggest beneficiaries of the MLB and NHL work stoppages. When asked which sports or entertainment categories have the most to gain from the current labor-management conflicts, respondents said the NFL has the most to gain, followed by the NBA, college football, figure skating, and the Olympics. Craig Tartasky, Exec Dir of the International Sport Summit: "With the silent passing of the Fall classic and the NHL not skating, football was poised to fill a void. As the beneficiary of the strike, Fox Television is the true winner thus far. The question remains though, would Fox have paid more for the rights to the NFL if they had known of the strikes and would the NFL have demanded more?" The 1995 International Sport Summit will be held January 17-18 in New York (Sport Summit).
