NFL may fine Seahawks $500,000 if they move

NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has warned Seattle Seahawks owner Ken Behring he could be fined as much as $500,000 if he moves the team, according to a report published yesterday in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

The story said the fine would be for conduct detrimental to the league. A spokesman for Behring, however, denied the story.

"There is no truth to the story whatsoever," Alan Elias said in Los Angeles.

He said that Tagliabue and Behring had a 90-minute meeting Wednesday night that was "cordial, a useful exchange of information."

"At no time during that meeting were there any threats made to Mr. Behring by the commissioner," Elias said. "Both sides agreed to reflect on the Seattle stadium situation and confer later."

Behring, who still has 10 years left on his lease with the Kingdome, has complained about the safety of the 20-year-old stadium. Behring has filed a lawsuit against the county claiming that the lease no longer is valid. The county has countersued.

* After losing out to the Chicago Bears in the pursuit of linebacker Bryan Cox, the St. Louis Rams are crying foul. Rams general manager Steve Ortmayer accused Cox's agent, Clifford Brady, of steering Cox to the Bears and misleading the Rams' front office.

* The Miami Dolphins re-signed wide receiver Randal Hill to a one-year contract. Hill caught 12 passes for 260 yards in 1995.
