STATE OF THE STADIUM: ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH

     Mile High Stadium, originally built in 1947 for the minor
league Denver Bears, became home to the Broncos in the early-
60's.  The Broncos are one of the few teams in the NFL who don't
share in any luxury seating, advertising, or parking revenue.
Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has asked the City of Denver for
assistance to build a new facility, but as of now, nothing is
imminent.
