STADIUM NEWS & NOTES: MORE HOLIDAY LEFTOVERS

     In Dallas last week, Mavericks owner Don Carter toured a
proposed arena site in Lewisville and called it a "heck of a good
alternative" to downtown Dallas.  Carter, who was joined by Mavs
coach Dick Motta as well as other city and county officials, said
that although he was looking at the new site, he wasn't "giving
up" on a new arena in Dallas (Kim North, DALLAS MORNING NEWS,
12/29)....According to reports last week in New Orleans, Saints
owner Tom Benson says that the city could lose Super Bowl XXXI if
$20.5M in renovations to the Superdome are not started early this
year.  Benson:  "If we don't get started by April, we can't have
the Superdome ready for the Super Bowl in 1997.  That is our
commitment to the NFL.  We could work on temporary seating to
keep the game, but that isn't part of the commitment that Gov.
Edwards and I made to the NFL" (Brian Allee-Walsh, New Orleans
TIMES-PICAYUNE, 12/29).
