PACKERS MAY BE LEAVING COUNTY STADIUM

     The Packers must decide in January on whether to renew the
lease at County Stadium.  The Packers play four games in
Milwaukee, but lose an estimated $1.6M a game on ticket sales,
higher rent and and a cut in concession revenue.  Packers
President Bob Harlan is holding off on a decision, waiting to see
if Milwaukee builds a new stadium, but stadium plans are on hold
until the baseball strike is settled.  "The betting around Green
Bay is that Harlan will not renew the lease," which would create
a problem of what to do with the 48,000 season ticket holders in
Milwaukee, "few of whom have tickets to Lambeau Field, which has
a separate ticket list and is sold out for every game" (Paul
Attner, THE SPORTING NEWS, 10/10 issue).
