NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue met Sunday with Seahawks Owner Ken Behring and Blazers Owner Paul Allen, who has an option to buy the team, in an attempt to "massage" the proposed sale of the club. Tagliabue expressed "optimism" the sale will be consummated as long as a suitable stadium solution is found (SEATTLE TIMES, 11/4). ...Since Devils Owner John McMullen owned the Astros from '79-92 and knows about the Houston market, NHL owners will "heed what he has to say" in its expansion process. Neil Hohlfeld writes McMullen is now "lying low, not tipping his hand as to which [ownership] group he favors. But make no mistake, he will have a say in who owns the NHL team in Houston" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/5).
