     Gaylord Entertainment's Dick Evans will meet "sometime this
week" with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman concerning new homes for
the Jets and Panthers (TENNESSEAN, 11/14)....A graphic in NEW
YORK magazine compares the Cowboys, Browns, Giants, Raiders, Rams
and Jets in terms of franchise success under the categories of
team-owned stadium, market monopoly, contented owner, recent
success, burgeoning fan support, strong national identity and
winning tradition.  The Jets rank last (NEW YORK, 11/20
issue)....The Brewers have added a second team in the Pioneer
League, the Ogden Raptors (BASEBALL WEEKLY, 11/15-21 issue)....Ed
Tepper, part-owner of the NPSL expansion Philadelphia Kixx, which
begins play next season, expects as many as 13,000 for a Chicago-
Baltimore game Saturday at the CoreStates Spectrum.  Tepper cites
14 corporate sponsorships for the rise in ticket sales over last
year's game (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/16).
