SNIDER TO LISTEN TO "OFFERS" FOR FLYERS

     Flyers owner Ed Snider said he will "consider offers from
anyone interested" in buying the team if the owners do not
prevail in the current NHL labor dispute.  Snider said the team
had revenues of more than $30M last season, but had an operating
loss of about $3M.  In April, FINANCIAL WORLD reported the Flyers
are worth $69M.  Snider, who has run the team since the its
inception as an expansion franchise in '67, said:   "If we go
this whole season without hockey, it will cost me a fortune.  The
stakes are very, very high for me, and why would I want to do
this to myself?"   The Flyers are only one part of the Snider's
Spectacor conglomerate, which also includes the Spectrum,
SpectaGuard and TicketMaster (Bob Ford, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER,
