BRIEFLY : NO CRIMINAL CHARGES IN WRESTLER'S DEATH.

No criminal charges will be filed in the death of University of Michigan wrestler Jeff Reese, who collapsed Dec. 9 following a severe weight loss regimen. Washtenaw County Prosecutor Brian Mackie announced the decision Friday following a two-week investigation into a case that has helped generate calls for reform in collegiate wrestling.

An autopsy concluded Reese died of a ``metabolic derangement'' from his efforts to rapidly shed pounds to qualify to wrestle at a 150-pound weight class.

The Oakland Athletics, unhappy with changes at the Oakland Coliseum, have made a veiled threat to leave the region next year if their demands are not met, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

The Athletics' demands - over utilities, advertising and luxury suites - have been overshadowed by the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority's problems with the Oakland Raiders and the Golden State Warriors, the two other professional teams who use the stadium and arena.

HOCKEY: Fred Page, inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 1993, died at the age of 82 on Monday. Page was first vice-president of the International Ice Hockey Federation from 1968 to 1972 as well as chairman of hockey for the 1972 Olympics in Sapporo, Japan.

He was president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association from 1966 to 1968. Before his retirement in 1996, he spent 23 years on the executive board of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League.
