He's against it.
David Stern said on the radio show that he wants to come down hard on the worst

year." Please, Commissioner, follow through on this. Floppers are penalized
in soccer and hockey. Make it the same in the NBA.

THIS SEASON marks
the 50th anniversary of the 1958 Colts-Giants title game, probably the most
important game in NFL history. It's also the last season for Yankee Stadium,
where the game was played. My question: How in the world did the NFL not find a
way to commemorate both milestones this year with a Colts-Giants game at Yankee
Stadium? Even if division-versus-division scheduling "rules" wouldn't
permit, the teams could still play an August exhibition during a Yanks road
trip. Somebody missed the boat.
THE FINE PRINT:
Dan Marino gave the commencement address on Sunday at Pitt. But he was
disappointed that five other QBs were picked to speak ahead of him.
