The Pacific Coast Athletic Assn.'s postseason basketball tournament will move from the Forum to the Long Beach Arena in 1989, conference officials said Monday. PCAA Commissioner Lewis A. Cryer said that a major factor in the decision was the Forum's Senate seat program, which reserves more than 2,000 prime seats for those who pay for a season-ticket package to all Forum events. "We were able to buy back some of those seats and re-sell them, but not enough of them," Cryer said.

For generations, rodeo riders were working cowboys who picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and limped into the sunset with a little cash in their jeans after a bruising day of bronc riding or calf roping. Nowadays, they're college educated and train like athletes for the chance to make big money. And, contrary to the Wild West image of the cowboy as rugged loner, they're trying to form a union. They want more money, insurance, maybe even a retirement plan.
