F. Ross Johnson, chief executive of RJR Nabisco, seemed the consummate can-do manager. A fashionable dresser who enjoys the company of sports figures, he bought and sold companies, launched new products and killed others without agonizing. In a career of corporate deal making, he had an uncanny ability to end up on top. He did, that is, until earlier this week, when an investment group led by the Canada native, 56, lost a bid to buy the Atlanta-based food and tobacco giant.

Not much, perhaps, unless you are one--or all--of the sports sponsorships that are part of the massive RJR Nabisco, Inc. special events marketing program, and you know that the largest leveraged buyout in financial history by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. will eventually lead to drastic cuts in the budget. It has been business as usual for Sports Marketing Enterprises, Inc.
