Action Sports still talking to AT&T
Oct. 11-15, 2001
Paul Allen's Action Sports Cable Network, the home of 25 regular-season Trail Blazers telecasts, continues to negotiate with AT&T Broadband in an attempt to get the games broader exposure for cable customers. AT&T says the terms the Blazers are offering are not "reasonable or acceptable."
• Portland finishes the major league baseball season with TV viewership of Seattle Mariners games higher than 18 home markets for other MLB clubs.
• The Oregon Ducks are ranked fifth in the nation and are 6-0 after winning at California, 48-7. Joey Harrington, the quarterback, has Samie Parker and Keenan Howry as key targets. Onterrio Smith and Maurice Morris are the main running backs.
• Rookie forward Zach Randolph, a freshman at Michigan State the year before, is getting some action in exhibition games with the Trail Blazers. He's expected to back up Portland's Rasheed Wallace, if he can beat out Dale Davis and Shawn Kemp for minutes.
