THE SUM OF FOUR PARTS: TAGLIABUE TO MEET WITH VIKES OWNERS

          The Vikings "saga" took an "unexpected turn Monday with
     news NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will receive some
     further but final testimony Wednesday morning from four of
     the team's co-owners," according to Don Banks of the
     Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE.  Tagliabue, who will meet with
     John Skoglund, Wheelock Whitney, James Jundt and N. Bud
     Grossman, has assured all parties that he is prepared to
     "promptly issue his decision" after Wednesday's hearing
     (STAR TRIBUNE, 3/10).  In St. Paul, Jeff Seidel writes that
     "some believe Tagliabue has decided [Vikings President
     Roger] Headrick has the right to match [Tom] Clancy's offer
     but will give the owners one last chance to explain their
     stance," while others believe Tagliabue "wants to hear the
     owners explain their mindset and the partnership agreement
     before deciding in their favor" (PIONEER PRESS, 3/10).
