TAGLIABUE WARNS VIKINGS NOT TO PUSH ROGER OVER AND OUT

          NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue ruled that Vikings
     President Roger Headrick "cannot be fired ... while the sale
     of the team to author Tom Clancy is pending and under the
     review process," according to Don Banks of the Minneapolis
     STAR TRIBUNE.  But some of the Vikings' board members "are
     intent on challenging Tagliabue's jurisdiction in the
     matter, claiming the board is within its right as a
     corporation" to name its CEO.  Vikings co-Owner Wheelock
     Whitney, on Headrick: "He's the boss, until further notice. 
     But his presence continues to remain a concern to us." 
     Banks wrote that the board is looking to replace Headrick
     "because it would prevent him from remaining in power should
     the sale to Clancy "collapse" (STAR TRIBUNE, 3/21).
