LEAGUE NOTES

          In Philadelphia, Phil Sheridan reports that the "lead
     item" at next week's NFL owners meetings in Orlando will be
     the reinstatement of instant replay to review officials'
     calls.  NFL Senior VP/Communications Joe Browne said the
     competition committee's latest proposal "would allow the on-
     field referee to review only calls that are challenged by
     one of the head coaches" (INQUIRER, 3/19)....No golfer has
     petitioned the PGA Tour Board for the right to use a golf
     cart in tournaments.  Davis Love, one of the Board's player
     directors, "expects peer pressure to help keep players from
     asking for carts" (Clifton Brown, N.Y. TIMES, 3/19)....In
     San Diego, Mark Zeigler previewed MLS's third season and
     wrote that "some would have you believe this is a make-or-
     break year" for MLS.  Zeigler: "It isn't.  It is an
     important season, yes.  But 1998 is more about survival than
     success, more about hanging around outside the big dance
     than buying a ticket to go in" (UNION-TRIBUNE, 3/18).
