The World League of American Football might not get started on schedule next spring because of the economy, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said today. "It's possible it might not start on time," Tagliabue said on the eve of a meeting of NFL owners. "Today there are a lot of uncertainties. The economy isn't as robust as it was when the idea of the league was launched." WLAF President Mike Lynn will be on hand Tuesday when the NFL "looks at all aspects of the operation," Tagliabue said.

The World League of American Football will add at least two teams next season, and there is a good chance one will be located in a city with an NFL team, WLAF Commissioner Mike Lynn said Wednesday. Lynn said there is a possibility the league could add four teams and expand to 14 teams next season. Lynn said the league's board of directors will meet June 8, before the World Bowl at Wembley, England, to discuss expansion. He hopes the franchises will be awarded by October.
