Alan Eagleson, head of the National Hockey League Players Assn. for 22 years, came under attack from attorneys hired by the union to assess his performance. "Questions are getting answered, and there are some answers the players don't like," said Kevin Dineen, player representative for the Hartford Whalers during a union meeting in Palm Beach, Fla. "A lot of players weren't concerned one way or the other about how the union is being run until some facts were brought up." Several player representatives said they want to talk with their teammates before a vote is taken on whether to fire Eagleson.

Alan Eagleson, executive director of the National Hockey League Players Assn. since it was formed in 1967, faces a challenge this weekend in West Palm Beach, Fla., at the union's annual meeting. Questions that have been raised concern the handling of union funds, the apparent conflicts involved in having a leader who also represents individual players and who works as a promoter of tournaments, and the possibly too-friendly relationship Eagleson enjoys with NHL President John Ziegler.

If it's going to cost money, the National Football League's 28 owners aren't interested in ending their long fight with the NFL Players Assn. Last season's strike didn't solve anything, and since then, the rival factions have been operating without a labor agreement. "Salaries have gone up so much that the players are now getting 70% of the NFL's gross revenue," George Young, general manager of the New York Giants, said the other day. "That's every dollar we get from television--and a lot more."

William Proxmire (D-Wis.), who is retiring next year after serving since 1957.

The two most pressing questions facing the National Football League and its fans are in the areas of labor relations and television: --Will there be another strike this summer after the expiration of the league's collective bargaining agreement with the NFL Players Assn.? --And now that cable television has a foot in pro football's doorway, will pay TV follow, replacing network TV in the NFL's next television contract?

Republican Tommy Thompson, the Assembly minority leader, upset Democratic Gov. Anthony Earl after a hard-hitting campaign in which he accused the incumbent of not doing enough for the state's economy. Republican Sen. Robert Kasten won a second term, fending off an aggressive challenge from Democrat Ed Garvey, a former state assistant attorney general and executive director of the National Football League Players Assn.

The strike to end all strikes, it wasn't. No picketing. No violence. Not one raw chicken leg flung. But what the National Football League walkout and lockout of 1982 lacked in classic labor drama, it more than made up in ill will and in-fighting. For 57 days, as an NFL season wasted away, management and players stuck their tongues out at each other. The NFL Players Assn. demanded, among other things, that its members receive 55% of the league's gross revenues.
