Broadway producer Robert Nederlander, promising to return front-office stability and fiscal sanity to the New York Yankees after George Steinbrenner's 17 1/2 years in control, was unanimously approved by major league owners as the team's new general partner Thursday. The owners ended their quarterly meetings by extending Bobby Brown's contract as American League president for two years, and by more than doubling the pension benefits of players who retired from 1947 through '58.

Unfazed by the competent performance of their stand-ins in exhibition games, NFL officials rejected the league's latest contract offer Thursday, meaning replacements will work at least the first week of the regular season, which begins Sunday. "The officials are trying to shut the game down," league spokesman Greg Aiello said. "We can't let that happen."

Fred Wyant spent 27 seasons as an NFL official, so he was especially skeptical Thursday in watching the historic debut of a replacement officiating crew. It didn't take him long to notice something that surely turned the stomachs of the locked-out regulars. "I wasn't able to tell the difference," he said. No controversy. No embarrassingly bad calls. Frankly, no big deal.

Hoping to accomplish in two weeks what he and the players have been unable to thrash out in 16 months, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman delayed today's season openers until Oct. 15 and urged the union to immediately resume intensive contract talks. Should the dispute carry beyond that date, Bettman said Friday, games would be lost for the first time in league history.

The NHL and its on-ice officials reached agreement in principle Tuesday on a four-year contract, bringing in sight an end to the walkout by referees and linesmen. Pending ratification today by both sides, contract officials would return to work Thursday, after sitting out 17 days. "We'll try to accomplish that in the next 24 hours," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said after Tuesday's nine-hour bargaining session in Montreal. "If all goes well, the officials will be back on the ice Thursday."

NHL referees and linesmen will return to work today, after ratifying a four-year agreement that significantly boosts their salaries, playoff guarantees and severance pay. Wednesday's approval by the 58-member NHL Officials Assn., which voted unanimously to strike Nov. 15, was "not unanimous, but very close to it," said Don Meehan, the association's chief negotiator. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said all 24 of the 26 NHL governors he contacted supported the deal.
