FRANCHISE NOTES

     MD officials have asked the NFL to delay consideration of a
resolution to guarantee Baltimore a franchise.   Questions on the
language led Maryland Stadium Authority Chair John Moag to ask
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue that the resolution be considered
"later in the calendar year" (Baltimore SUN, 11/1)....ITT Corp.
said they see Madison Square Garden as an "underused" venue and
will add a list of summer entertainment events starting in '96.
ITT Chair Rand Araskog said they and partner Cablevision are
considering theme-park events and attractions using virtual-
reality technology or entertainment from ITT's Caesar's hotels
(REUTERS/DAILY VARIETY, 11/1)....The city of Oakland and Alemeda
County granted the Warriors a one-month extension to determine
the team's home after '95-96.  The team is considering offers to
move to San Jose or stay in a new Oakland arena (OAKLAND TRIBUNE,
11/1)....As of yesterday, four days before the CFL's first-round
playoffs, only 13,100 tickets had been sold in Baltimore.  The
Stallions had averaged 30,114 for the season (Baltimore SUN,
11/1).... NFL sources estimate the Oilers could buy out the
remainder of their Astrodome lease for about $3M if they decide
to move to Nashville sooner than '98 (TENNESSEAN, 10/30).
