  • FRANCHISE NOTES

         In response to TEAM MARKETING REPORT's survey on average
    ticket prices, the Blues produced their own survey of their
    average ticket price.  TMR's survey said the Blues average ticket
    price was $9 more than the league average and more than double
    the average price in league-low Edmonton and Tampa Bay.  But the
    club's survey had top-end pricing "in line with the league
    standard."  Blues President Jack Quinn: "I don't know where these
    guys are coming from" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 10/6)....In
    Boston, Nick Cafardo profiles Robert Kraft's tenure as Patriots
    owner, under the headline: "Kraft advisory:  Smooth sailing."
    Subhead: "For owner, it's been a successful journey into
    uncharted waters" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/5).

  • SHREVEPORT PIRATES GET NO CREDIT

         Lonie Glieberman, president of the CFL Shreveport Pirates,
    asked taxpayers to guarantee a loan of up to $4.5M over three
    years to pay bills the team has not met because of low attendance
    this season.  But a poll of 200 Shreveport residents shows that
    63% oppose any loan.  Only 21% favored the loan (David
    Westerfield, SHREVEPORT TIMES, 10/5).  LA Gov. Edwin Edwards
    turned Glieberman down for state funds last week.  Pirates owner
    Bernie Glieberman said despite the team's financial troubles, it
    is not for sale and there is "no reason" to believe the team will
    not be in Shreveport next year (Cooper & Heitholt, SHREVEPORT
    TIMES, 10/5).
