Four charities anticipate sharing $250,000 by selling boxes of dirt and grass ripped from Lambeau Field after the "mud bowl" game in Green Bay, Wis. Demand is so high for a "piece of the frozen tundra" from the Green Bay Packer-San Francisco 49er NFL playoff game that organizers intend to package the dirt into 25,000 specially designed Kleenex-size boxes and sell them for $10 apiece. The sale begins at Lambeau on Jan.

Former Coach John McKay has been heavily fined by the National Football League for ordering Tampa Bay to allow the New York Jets to score at will so his star tailback could try for an NFL record. The fine, believed to be the largest ever against an NFL coach, was levied by Commissioner Pete Rozelle for McKay's actions in Tampa Bay's 41-21 victory Dec. 16--the last day of the 1984 season.

If you're planning to attend the Jets' home opener Sunday against the Browns, it would be a good idea to buy a program. Otherwise, you might have trouble determining the players. This isn't the same team that trudged off the field last Dec. 23 after being blown out by the Bills, 37-0, in the season finale. The 1990 Jets have 21 new players -- a 45 percent turnover from last season's 4-12 team.

It is not as if the person who runs the New York Jets has shut his office door to the turmoil outside. That man does not even have an office at the nerve center of the National Football League franchise. That is just one of the distinguishing characteristics of the organization. Leon Hess was a silent partner in the five-man syndicate that purchased the New York Titans in 1963, renamed them and nurtured them to major-league status.

Donald Trump called the verdict a moral victory. But, without a money victory, other leaders in pro football's newest league said they are in limbo. "It's going to be very tough. It's like a death in the family," USFL Commissioner Harry Usher said of Tuesday's token award of $3 to the league in response to its $1.69 billion antitrust suit against the NFL. "It's hard to believe. We won, but we lost," said Steve Gerrish, a spokesman for the USFL's Jacksonville Bulls.

Paul Tagliabue doesn't know it yet, but Dion Rich will be having his picture taken with him at the Commissioner's Party at the Equestrian Center in Griffith Park Friday night. Rich, of course, is not on Tagliabue's guest list, but it wouldn't be the first time he has posed as a waiter to gain admittance to one of the NFL's Super Bowl bashes. "You know, sometimes you can actually get lost coming in through the kitchen," he said.

New England's Tony Eason isn't the first quarterback to come down with the flu coming up to a big game. More than 30 years ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Bob Waterfield was running a fever of 102 the day he led the Rams to a key playoff win at the Coliseum. Seized by the flu a few hours earlier, Waterfield threw three touchdown passes to Hall of Fame receiver Tom Fears that afternoon to eliminate the Detroit Lions.

Paul Brown, Cincinnati Bengal vice president: "Goodness knows, it gives me more faith than I had in the judicial system. I can guarantee you that Pete Rozelle is really celebrating." Jim Kensil, New York Jet president: "The damage award clearly indicates the jury had a full understanding that mismanagement by the USFL and its desire to merge were the reason for the lawsuit."

Lamar Hunt does not remember the exact time or place, only the circumstances. The year was 1966, and the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs was serving on a six-man committee to begin the process of merging the upstart American Football League with the established National Football League. "We were talking about playing a championship game that season," Hunt recalled the other day, "and in our conversations, we were debating one day whether to have two weeks off before the game.
