In St. Paul, Charley Walters writes the "latest word" is the NFL "will try to assist" Vikings President Roger Headrick "in acquiring financing" to become the team's 30% managing partner (PIONEER PRESS, 12/18)....The ABL opened its locker room doors to reporters 20 minutes before and after games from December 8-15 on a trial basis. The league will ask "for feedback" and is "expected to decide on a policy this week." The league has kept its doors closed to the media and players are interviewed in separate rooms. ABL Dir of Media Relations Dean Jutilla: "Most of the feedback has been positive for keeping them closed" (HARTFORD COURANT, 12/18). In other ABL news, Dwight Chapin wrote that with ABL attendance up 20% and the quality of play "markedly improved," it "seems to be very much in the game against the big-bucks WNBA" (S.F. EXAMINER, 12/17).
