OAKLAND COLISEUM OFFICIALS TAKE EXTRA STEPS TO SEDATE FANS

     Officials from the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, the
Oakland Football Marketing Association, and the city's police
department plan another meeting today on controlling fans at
Raiders games, according to the OAKLAND TRIBUNE.  Officials
already have announced an extra police squad will be on hand
during the game against the Steelers this Sunday, bringing the
total to 60 police and traffic officers assigned to the Coliseum
during Raiders games.  On Sunday, 72 people were ejected from the
stadium, 32 were arrested and 14 were cited by police, but police
Sgt. Bill McFarlane noted, "We could have done three times the
business if we wanted to" (Robert Salladay, OAKLAND TRIBUNE,
12/5).
