SBD/5/Leagues Governing Bodies

LEAGUE NOTES

     CFL Governors ended their annual meeting last week without a
"concrete answer" on which teams are in or out for '96.
Questions surround each of the league's five U.S. franchises
(CP/Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/2).  Pepper Rodgers, President and
coach of the CFL's Memphis Mad Dogs, said he will discuss the
possibility of starting a new four-down U.S. league out of the
failed American clubs.  Rodgers:  "I know there's a possibility
for a television contract in the States, and not for the CFL"
(Marty York, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/2)....In Boston, Nick
Cafardo examines a proposal to build a 25,000-seat baseball
stadium in Worcester, MA, for a possible UBL franchise.  The UBL
has hired HKS Corp. of Dallas to design the stadium, and former
Red Sox GM Lou Gorman and former Sox manager Joe Morgan are
floated as a potential brain-trust (BOSTON GLOBE, 12/3)....The
AHL surpassed the 1 million attendance mark for '95-96 on
December 3, the earliest date the league has done so (AHL).
