CANHAM SURPRISED BY DECISION
High court to rule on NCAA deal

By LARRY MISHKIN
The NCAA won a major victory yesterday when the
Supreme Court said it would review the
association's multimillion-dollar broadcasting deal
with the television networks.
The high court's decision came in the wake of an
invalidation of the agreement by a lower court on the
grounds that the deal is anti-competitive because it
reduces the number of televised games to viewers
nationwide.
"THE RULING was surprising," said Michigan
Athletic Director Don Canham. "I thought that the
court was going to decline to hear the case. It doesn't
make a lot of difference though because I expect that
they'll hear it anyway before next season."
As a result of the decision, televised Saturday
college football games will continue this fall as
scheduled. How the court will now eventually rule,
though, is a question that even Canham can only pon-
der on.
"A federal judge and a district appeals court and
even the government all said that anti-trust laws had
been violated," said Canham. "We assumed that the

Supreme Court would back up the justice department
and the lower courts, but they didn't.
"YOU NEVER KNOW what the Court will rule on
now," he continued. "They must have seen
something that the lower courts didn't. They may
back up the other courts and they may not. I can't
guess now. All the people I talked to thought that the
court wouldn't hear the case."
Last July, Justice Byron White, one-time All
America halfback, issued an order allowing the
National Collegiate Athletic Association to continue
its negotiated broadcast schedule until the case is set-
tled. A high court decision is unlikely until sometime
next year.
In its Supreme Court appeal, the NCAA argued that
"more than football is at stake" if the lower court
ruling is left alone. It could affect "almost every suc-
cessful professional sport (that) has pooled and sold
TV rights as a package to one or more networks," the
associations lawyers told the justices.
THE NCAA'S contracts with the networks involve
$74.3 million in payments in.1983, and affect audien-
ces of up to 22.5 million for each game broadcast.
NCAA rules restrict participating schools to six ap-

pearances every two years. Each broadcast can net a
school up to $600,000, plus the attendant national
publicity.
The athletic association, composed of 785 member
college and 100 athletic conferences, has contracts
with ABC and CBS to telecast 14 afternoon games
each fall, and with Turner Broadcasting System to
show 19 evening games.
ABC SPOKESMAN Don Bernstein, said the court's
decision to hear the case "did not come as a surprise,
given White's comments earlier in the year."
"It could have an impact on the selling of '84
games," Bernstein said.
Mark Carlson, a spokesman for CBS, said the net-
work will "await a decision by the court for our plans
for next year."
Andy Coats, a lawyer for the University of
Oklahoma, said that courts have said, " 'Well, gee, it
(the NCAA TV package) must be OK because its been
around a long time and the NCAA is a good group.,
Then, fortunately, when they seem to analyze it and
see what actually has been happening, the courts are
usually more apt to go our direction."
