|Jones Says Revenue-Sharing
Won't Be A Part Of New CBA
STAND TO LOSE: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman noted if Jones is "successful in his attempt to eliminate revenue-sharing in the NFL, the Vikings will be losing some $20[M] or so that they have received in each of the past three seasons and will get again this year." Meanwhile, Twins President Dave St. Peter said that he believes Target Field and the Univ. of Minnesota's new TCF Bank Stadium "will help the Vikings get a new stadium." St. Peter: "The fans are going to be so happy with the two new stadiums that they will want the Vikings to get a similar stadium. I'm convinced the effect of the new stadiums will be more important than some people think" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/6).
