JACKSONVILLE COULD BE LUCRATIVE DIVISION FOE

     The Cleveland PLAIN DEALER's Tony Grossi examined the
slotting of the expansion teams, writing that the Jaguars "figure
to be among the more lucrative stops for visiting clubs."  They
will play in the-soon-to-be renovated Gator Bowl, and have sold
out the Gator Bowl's 73,000 seats through '97 at an average
ticket price of $37.  That would guarantee $2.7M in ticket
revenue, giving each visiting club a share of $1.08M, placing the
Jaguars at least in the top five in visiting gate receipts paid
out.  The 49ers ($2.72 million) and Giants ($2.7 million)
currently have greater potential per-game receipts (Tony Grossi,
CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER, 11/6).  For their part, the Carolina
Panthers are guaranteeing $1.28M in visiting gate receipts.
