ANAHEIM MICE? STADIUM PLANS OPEN DOOR FOR NFL

     Anaheim and Disney officials are discussing stadium plans
that would satisfy the needs of the Angels and an NFL franchise
in Orange County, according to the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER.
Anaheim city officials "tabled" plans to build a new $180M
baseball stadium after Disney officials said renovations to
Anaheim stadium would be "acceptable" for the Angels.  This
allows the city to focus resources toward a new football-only
stadium, something the NFL has said would be necessary to attract
a team (Marla Jo Fisher, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 9/7).  Janis
Carr writes from Orange County that Disney Chair Michael Eisner
has "expressed an interest" in owning at least part of an NFL
team, and Anaheim Stadium GM Greg Smith hinted last week the city
doesn't plan on waiting for an expansion team.  Smith: "I can't
talk about it.  All I can is that we have a fairly solid chance
of getting a team in Anaheim" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 9/7).
