THE LONG ARM OF THE NFL -- FAKE TICKETS, UNDERCOVER CRUISERS

     "There is virtually no chance Super Bowl tickets are
counterfeit, and the NFL doesn't expect a problem with
counterfeit media credentials like it had in Atlanta last year,"
according to a report in this morning's Ft. Lauderdale SUN-
SENTINEL.  NFL Dir of Special Events Jim Steeg:  "We learned a
lot about how far people will go last year."  Steeg said he and
his staff are paying more attention to game credentials -- using
hard-to-purchase materials that increase the cost of
counterfeiting.  In addition, the presence of a 75th anniversary
hologram has decreased concern over counterfeit game tickets.
Steeg, who estimated the costs of printing tickets at $150,000
per 2,000:  "You can see making a profit wouldn't be easy" (Craig
Barnes, Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 1/25).
     THE INFAMOUS NUDE CRUISE:  NFL Dir of Communications Greg
Aiello said the league will have a "presence" aboard a cruise
featuring naked show girls and gambling.  Cruise promoters are
claiming that 50 present or former NFL players will also be
aboard.  Aiello:  "There will be a representative of NFL security
on board.  But I don't know who that will be."  The league has
threatened fines and "lifetime suspensions" to players or others
affliliated with the NFL that attend (Ken Rodriguez, MIAMI
HERALD, 1/25).
