GLAZER TO ORLANDO: I WANT A NEW STADIUM

     Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer has indicated he wants a new
stadium should the team move to Orlando, not a "souped-up" Citrus
Bowl, according to the ORLANDO SENTINEL.  The Orlando Sports
Commission has since contacted K.C. architectural firm, HOK
Sports, to draw up proposals for both a renovated facility and a
new stadium.  Commission Dir Randy Johnson says they will have
something back within 10 days.  Johnson also notes, however, that
renovating the Citrus Bowl could leave the Bucs without a place
to play if they decided to move after this season (Dan Tracy,
ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/5).  Lawrence Lebowitz reports Johnson has
announced the Sports Commission has assembled a "team of local
experts" to examine "several key angles" of moving the Bucs to
Orlando.  The group's first meeting is today (ORLANDO SENTINEL,
11/4).

community rallying to save the Bucs (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/6).
