NFL Lockout Watch, Day 12: CFL, UFL Could Benefit From NFL Work Stoppage

STRIKE WHILE THE IRON'S HOT: In Las Vegas, Ron Kantowski noted the UFL can "provide alternative pro football programming if the networks think they'll be needing it" this fall.

Huyghue: "I think one of the (potential) revenue streams has to start hitting or it will be difficult to continue. I'd love for them (NFL) to get back ... just not right away" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 3/22).
