CALL OLIVER STONE! DID NIKE MAKE RONALDO JUST DO IT?

          Brazil star player Ronaldo said he "suffered a
     convulsive seizure" just hours before the Final, and there
     "have been suggestions" that Nike, which has a 10-year
     contract with Brazil and an 11-year deal with Ronaldo's
     Inter Milan team, "intervened and forced [Brazil coach
     Mario] Zagallo to put his injured star in for the start of
     the game," according to a CANADIAN PRESS report. Nike
     released a statement in response to "rumors circulating"
     that said, "Nike wants to emphasize that the report of such
     involvement is absolutely false" (CP/TORONTO STAR, 7/14).
