Bill of righties and lefties


December 28, 1991

This month, during the 200th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, Denver Post columnist Woody Paige proposed some new amendments on behalf of sports fans. Such as:

* Athletes have the inalienable right to get as much money as they can -- if they hit at least .300, win 20 games, average 20 points a game or catch 75 passes a year. Others must be given the same salary as a pipefitter.

* The right of the people shall not be denied in establishing a legitimate national collegiate football champion.

* The citizens have a right to be protected from pay per view. And Notre Dame football every Saturday.
