WORD UP: ORLANDO NOT PULLING ANY PUNCHES WITH THE BUCS

     Orange County Chair Linda Chapin on Tuesday told the County
Commission there would be no new stadium for the Bucs and no
"sweetheart deals" either, according to the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES.
Orlando Mayor Glenda Hood said on Monday she is more focused on
seeking contributions to build a $150M performing arts center in
Orlando rather than luring the Bucs.  Chapin said she was open to
renovating the Citrus Bowl, but added the Bucs would be expected
to assume "a significant share," perhaps as much as 50%, of
renovation costs (Jeff Testerman, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 12/13).
Randy Johnson, Exec Dir of the Orlando Area Sports Commission:
"The Bucs are hearing the word 'No' a lot.  And that's
disappointing" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 12/13).
