JETS DEADLINE FOR PURCHASE MAY 1?
If the Jets are not bought by Winnipeg investors by May 1,
the team could be on the move, according to Kevin Paul Dupont of
the BOSTON GLOBE. Jets Owner Barry Shenkarow said he will not
extend the deadline from May 1, "perhaps because he believes he
can pocket $75 million plus (US funds) by selling south of the
border." Dupont reports that Ogden Corp. has a standing offer to
move the team to the Target Center in Minneapolis, and if the
team is sold that could mean the July 8 amateur draft, to be held
in Winnipeg, would move -- possibly to L.A (BOSTON GLOBE, 3/19).
