IT AIN'T EASY BEING CHEESY: NFL CRACKS DOWN ON COUNTERFEITS

          Local authorities "confiscated thousands of dollars of
     suspected illegal Packers and NFL merchandise over the
     weekend from a popular tavern" near Lambeau Field, according
     to Meg Jones of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  An NFL
     official called the bust "one of the largest of its kind." 
     Jones reports that while some items "looked like the real
     thing," there were some items "that were a sure tip-off. 
     Like a T-shirt featuring a caricature of ... Brett Favre
     urinating on a Chicago Bears helmet."  The street value of
     the merchandise was "estimated" at $10,000 to $15,000
     (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 1/6).  In a "similar action" Saturday in
     Pittsburgh, $30,000 "worth of unlicensed merchandise (about
     1,000 items) was seized" (USA TODAY, 1/6).
