CFL AND NFL CONTINUE TALKS OVER POSSIBLE AFFILIATION
Published January 9, 1997
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).
