TAGLIABUE STAYS BEHIND IDEA OF LEAGUE-OWNED STADIUMS

     NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's year-old suggestion the
league build and operate its own facilities "seems to be gaining
momentum."  Patriots Owner Robert Kraft:  "Maybe we should look
at the league developing and owning the stadium in these dual
markets.  If you have two teams, you can justify the numbers.
Maybe that's what the wave of the future should be.  The stadium
issue is the biggest one facing the NFL.  What will create major
inequity is the stadium situation" (Larry Weisman, USA TODAY,
6/29).
