DOES NFL HAVE A DEBATE ON ITS HANDS OVER CROSS OWNERSHIP?

     Even though the NFL's finance committee voted 6-1 to change
cross ownership rules to allow owners to own teams in other
sports, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue "ran into so much
opposition" on the issue that he "tabled" it until the NFL's
spring meetings in March, according to Vito Stellino of the
Baltimore SUN.  Bills Owner Ralph Wilson, who objects cross
ownership: "It's virtually the last rule we have and we should
defend it.  If the rules are good enough for 75 years or
whatever, why do we have to change?"  Bengals Owner Mike Brown:
"The rule makes these teams special to the people who own them"
(Baltimore SUN, 11/3).
