ODDS-ON FAVORITE? NBC Sports President Ken Schanzer, when asked to rate on a zero-to-ten scale the AFL's odds of returning to NBC in '05: "That's what they are, zero or 10." Schanzer added of the league's 1.2 average rating: "We're even with last year, but we're in a sports world where every sport has declined. So we are running against the tide" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 5/1). Responding to the Arizona Republic report, an NBC spokesperson told THE DAILY today that the network is happy with its relationship with the AFL and that Schanzer's comments should not be taken as a vote of no confidence (THE DAILY).
