MINORITY GROUP SEEKS CFL FRANCHISE ON LONG ISLAND

     A Long Island businessman has submitted a $100,000 deposit
to the CFL for an expansion team in 1995.  Perry Carter, 39, said
he wants to "replicate on Long Island" what the CFL has done in
Baltimore.  Carter's "minority-dominated investment group
includes former NFL players Ottis Anderson, Rich Caster," and
financial adviser Winston Thompson.  Carter will meet next week
with representatives from Hofstra University to discuss use of
its stadium in Uniondale, NY.  A team in Long Island would
"enhance the league's bargaining position in negotiations for a
U.S. TV contract."  The league fee for an expansion team in '95
is $6M (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 10/8).
