MLS PLAYERS FILE SUIT IN U.S. DISTRICT COURT

          The MLS Players Association filed an anti-trust suit 
     against the league under the names of ten players, one from
     each team, yesterday in U.S. District Court in Boston,
     according to Dan Giesin in the S.F. CHRONICLE.  The suit
     challenges what the players "charge are illegal restrictions
     imposed by the league," including a salary cap and MLS'
     single-entity system, which the suit calls a "sham, designed
     to suppress players salaries" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 2/14).
