NFL players reconsider demand
WASHINGTON (AP) - Negotiators
for striking National Football League
players are ready to discuss dropping.
their demand for a minimum wage
scale if the club owners agree to a
system tied to a maximum wage and
incentive and performance bonuses,
union bargainers told the Associated.
The union's insistence on a minimum
wage scale has been a major obstacle in
negotiations and was a key factor in
triggering the players strike two weeks
"I THINK WE could get the member-
ship to swallow giving up the minimum
wage," union president Gene Upshaw
The union negotiators also said they
are prepared to entertain a proposal for
a "private mediation" but indicated
they still were cool to federal
mediation, which NFL Management

minimum wage scale and mediation
was traced to a one-hour discussion
Friday night between union chief Ed
Garvey and Jack Donlan, the owners'
"SIGNALS were receivedbduring that
conversation t~o lead us to believe the,
owners would be agreeable to an annual
cap on wages," Garvey said.
Repeated phone calls to Donlan on
Monday were unanswered. The
management council's executive com-
mittee, made up of six club owners, met
in New York but council spokesman
Jim Miller wold not say where. He also
said no post-meeting statement was
Three days of negotiations aimed at
ending the strike ended Saturday with
no progress reported. No future talks
have been scheduled.
DONLAN HAS previously sought the
intervention of a federal mediator to
aid in reaching accord on a new collective
tive bargaining agreement. Union of-
ficials had discounted mediation saying
negotiators are "too far apart" for
Garvey, however, said Sunday that if
the committee of club owners joined
negotiations and still no progress was
made, mediation would be the next
Monday night Garvey said the union
would consider "some form of private
mediation to get the talks moving."

just didn't have his usual clairvoyance
this week as he stumbled to a record of .
well, we'd better not tell. We will[
report that Bruce Goethe of South State
Street won the Pizza Bob's specialty
with a record of 16-4. The match did go
to a tie-breaker in which Goethe
obliterated all opposition.
Totally fictional sources report that
Sadler's downfall was due to the fact
that he listened to a Spartan friend for
advice on his picks..
And we all know that Spartans don't
know football. Spartans pick anyone
wearing green to come out on top. So
they expect MSU to win a lot, which is
real likely, and they pick teams like
Eastern Michigan to win, which is even
