Piranha President Roy Englebrecht said team owners discussed the fate of Coach Babe Parilli at a meeting Monday. "Something might develop this afternoon or tomorrow, but Babe has a contract," Englebrecht said Monday. "He wasn't fired." A report on an Albany, N.Y., television station said Parilli had been fired and would be replaced by Albany Firebirds Coach Mike Hohensee. Parilli, who recently finished the first year of a two-year contract, could not be reached for comment at his home in Denver.

The Washington Redskins called him Whiskey. When he called his signals, his face became a bright magenta, the cords in his neck stood out and the plays were spat out in the laryngitic husk of a guy who had either taken too many straight rights to the Adam's apple or his collar was too tight or he had sucked in too much smoke-filled air in all-night card games.
