    contract that includes a no-trade clause and a signing bonus of
    almost $13M (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 9/9).  49ers President Carmen
    Policy:  "We reached out and pulled every rabbit from the hat.
    And when we ran out of rabbits, we even went for gerbils."  To
    Sanders:  "Good luck to you, personally, and may your team fail"
    (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/9).  In Ft. Worth, Jim Reeves writes,
    "If the Cowboys don't win the Super Bowl, Jones and the Cowboys
    will be the laughingstocks of the sporting world" (FT. WORTH

    didn't bid:  We're not in the carnival business" (MIAMI HERALD,

    "another $20 million over the next five years from combined deals
    from Pepsi and Nike" ("NFL ON NBC," 9/10).  49ers WR Jerry Rice,
    to Bay Area media after yesterday's game:  "You guys made it into
    a circus.  It takes a team effort to win a Super Bowl.  It was an
    insult what you guys wrote" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/11).  In
    Dallas, Richard Alm reports that Sanders' agent, Eugene Parker,
    has said deals were on the way with a cereal, apparel line and
    soft-drink.  Parker said Sanders could sign between $7-10M in
