CFL AND NFL CONTINUE TALKS OVER POSSIBLE AFFILIATION

          NFL Senior VP Joe Browne said last night the CFL and
     NFL have had talks about a potential relationship, but that
     the NFL was "just listening" and that no agreement on a
     "rescue plan" was near, according to Frank Litsky of the
     N.Y. TIMES.  Browne: "We've had several meetings. We have
     heard their proposals, which vary greatly.  At this point,
     there's nothing new" (N.Y. TIMES, 1/9).  CFL governors meet
     in Toronto today to review the state of the Montreal
     franchise.  CFL CEO Jeff Giles said the governors will also
     review the league's "continuing negotiations" with the NFL
     over player development (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 1/9).
