Bills' Levy: I'm sorry for obscenities

Football notes

October 10, 1991

Buffalo Bills coach Marv Levy yesterday apologized for his conduct on the sideline of Monday night's 33-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Cameras caught Levy screaming at officials at several points during the game, and, though he couldn't be heard, it was clear some profanity was being used.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said that the league would review tapes of the game to determine whether Levy should be fined for violating league policy that prohibits players and coaches from using obscenities in public.

But Levy said the possibility of league action had no impact on his decision to apologize.

"I want to apologize to anybody I offended," Levy said. "I'm not very proud of what I was seen doing. I'm embarrassed by it. I expect to continue to be emotional during the course of a football game, but I don't want to do it in an offensive manner."

* Commissioner Paul Tagliabue met with lawyers representing players suing the league for free agency in hopes of reaching a settlement that could lead to the first labor agreement since the 1987 strike.

It was the latest in a series of meetings Tagliabue has held with representatives of the players over the last year.

* BEARS: Tight end Cap Boso's career is apparently over because of a knee injury. Boso, 28, was placed on injured reserve Monday after undergoing the second arthroscopic operation since June on his left knee.

* EAGLES: Offensive tackle Antone Davis, Philadelphia's No. 1 draft choice, is being benched for too many fundamental errors.
