FRANCHISE NOTES

     Hartford's AFL franchise will be called the Connecticut
Coyotes, with midnight blue, silver and red as their colors.  The
Coyotes will play at Hartford Civic Center, beginning in May 1995
(HARTFORD COURANT, 10/5)....The ongoing sale of the Harrisburg
Senators, a AA-franchise, has taken "far longer to complete than
anticipated."  Owners Jerome Mileur and Scott Carter had agreed
to sell to William Collins, but they are reportedly turning to
another unknown ownership group.  Collins, whose group owns Class
A teams in Greensboro, NC and Madison, WI, has threatened
litigation if the team is not sold to him as promised (Harrisburg
PATRIOT-NEWS, 10/3)....The first-year CFL Shreveport Pirates are
asking taxpayers to guarantee a loan of up to $4.5M, but are
getting a "cool response" from city and state officials.  Team
officials say the Pirates are expected to lose up to $2M more
than anticipated (AP, 10/5).
