MONTGOMERY, W.VA. *-- ^~ ~~ f ^^ ^ KERSTEIN League owners eyeing cable hook-up for sports events MII WVIIMIIIVIIIII; Special By Jay Fredericks There are r u m b l i n g s abroad again that this may be about the last season you'll be able to watch the World Series or professional football on television for free. Unless, that is, Congress enacts some legislation to prohibit money hungry sports moguls from moving their attractions to a pay cable operation. The lure of all that cash, Just waiting out there to be harvested, is getting too much for some team owners to bear. The plan is this: Instead of getting the games on network--or free --television, the games instead will be tied into a closed cable operation. If you want to see a game, then you'll have to pay for it. The going figure they're talking about at the moment is $2 per game per set. And with several million television sets in the country- well, it doesn't take a certified public accountant to figure that it all adds up to a large potful of gelt. No wonder the sounds of cash register bells already are ringing in the heads of the team owners. The only reason the games aren't already on a pay-TV basis is that the owners are fearful of Congressional reaction. The legal position of sports in the United States is balanced on the good will of the legislative branch which continues to regard professional baseball and, to some extent, football and basketball as sports rather than businesses. This benign attitude protects the owners from little things like anti-trust laws. Should Congress turn nasty--and it just might if a lot SHOW TIME. AUGUST 6. SUNDAY SOLO of voters wrote their representatives complaining about having to pay for football games they were getting free--tills protection would be removed and the owners would be left out In the cold, legal world all alone. Except for batteries of attorneys representing players suing for more money That's the catch, too. H the owners start making these extra millions from. pay-TV, the players are going to start demanding-and rightfully s o - t h e i r share. After all, it isn't tine owners who go out there every Sunday and butt heads. When the move toward pay-TV begins it will start with the "spectaculars"-the World Series, the Super Bowl, the basketball champ i o n s h i p playoffs. Then, spreading from there, it will move down to the regional championships and then to the individual games. Some people say, well, If we get it without commercials it might be worth $2. But there's no guarantee you're going to get it without commercials. The owners are trying to figure out some way to have their cake and eat it too. And if past performance is any indication, the odds are good they'll find it. * * » I'm getting more than a little tired of that lady who shills for Oxydol and cow parents into buying white clothes for their kids. Somebody ought to stick her into a washing machine and send her through the wash cycle several times. 438 INSTALLATION AND DELIVERY EXTRA k«nir\iTirv INSTALLATION AND % ^ AND IT S...
