OAKLAND-ALAMEDA COUNTY COLISEUM BOARD GRANTS EXTENSION

     The Warriors yesterday got an extension from the Oakland-
Alameda County Coliseum Board to decide where they will play next
season, according to the S.F. CHRONICLE.  The team is in
discussions with Coliseum officials to refurbish the facility,
and Warriors attorney Robin Baggett said the "discussions are
going very well."  Details had not been worked out by yesterday
(S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/16).  The Warriors' discussions with San Jose
revealed that city is the Bay Area's "largest and wealthiest
market for a professional sports franchise."  According to SALES
AND MARKETING magazine's annual survey of buying power, San Jose
ranks 3rd in the U.S. in percentage of households with income of
$50,000+ (Mark Simon, S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/16).  In Oakland, Bob
Salladay writes that any renovations to the Coliseum could slow
construction on the stadium, which would cost up to $10,000 per
game, or $1M after 30 days if stadium work is not done by April 1
(OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 11/16).
