DECISION STILL LOOMS ON OILERS' CARPET FIASCO
The NFL is conducting hearings with the Oilers and Astrodome
USA officials regarding August 19th's canceled preseason game
with the Chargers and the $2M in revenues lost due to the
cancelation. John Williams reports in this morning's HOUSTON
CHRONICLE that this is an unprecedented situation for the league.
On Friday, the team asked U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes for
permission to tack on the $2M lost from the game to their pending
lawsuit against Houston, Harris County and Astrodome USA
(HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/29).
