     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).
