THE GAMBLER: JONES CONTEMPLATES COUNTERSUIT AGAINST NFL

     Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said his second meeting with NFL
Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and the executive council of NFL
Properties will determine whether or not he files a countersuit,
according to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  Jones: "I'm probably going
to be taking the next step no matter what happens. ... It will be
a very productive meeting because it will dictate to a large
degree what I do over the next few days with regard to litigation
with the NFL."  The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at an
undisclosed location (Ed Werder, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/4).
Jones also adds:  "This potentially has more interest than the
labor agreement or anything because it transcends the sports
page" (Dave Sell, WASHINGTON POST, 10/4).
     CALL BILLY PAYNE:  An editorial in AD AGE notes that with
Jerry Jones, the NFL and NFL Properties are "getting a taste" of
a problem that plagues Olympic organizers:  ambush marketing (AD
AGE, 10/2 issue).
     INSTANT REPLAY:  A report in the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER notes
a formal vote on bringing back instant replay "seems inevitable"
next March at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach.  Browns Owner
Art Modell:  "The bottom line is it's there for 40 million people
to watch on television.  Right now, they're seeing what we can't
correct, and that's not good for anybody" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER,
10/4).
