THERE was movement yesterday in all of the three major American sports suffering turmoil over industrial relations.

Ice hockey club owners made a revised offer to the players after six hours of talks, the first contact between the sides since last week's decision to postpone the season until 15 October.

In basketball, club owners met last night to discuss their differences with the players over salary caps, free agency, college drafts and the way the sport's money is distributed.

And the latest moves in baseball saw the owners call for a 45-day delay in the start of the period to sign players.
