    <P><PRE>In what it called a restructuring, the National
    Football League eliminated the business side
    that was handling its Sunday Ticket business.

    Eight of 10 NFL employees who worked on the NFL's
    Sunday Ticket business were let go last week, NFL
    spokesperson Greg Aiello said. Two positions were
    assigned to the broadcast/operations side of the
    NFL, which handles TV functions with ABC, CBS,
    FOX and ESPN.

    Aiello said DirecTV, which obtained multi-year
    rights to the package in December, will take over
    marketing, pricing, promotions and administration
    of the Sunday Ticket package. NFL Sunday Ticket
    delivers up to 14 televised out-of-market games
    each weekend. </PRE></A>
