I found a similar issue when trying to play nhlpa2k3 and it's clone nhl98. Upon loading both these game, once you press P1 Start at the main menu options and then start at the Regular game options you get the black screen.

I wasn't sure if I should make a brand new report and connect a New relationship because the behaviors are so similar.

Anyway, I'll put this here to test if others get the same result.
