L.A. CITY COUNCIL APPROVES MONEY FOR A STADIUM CONSULTANT

     The L.A. City Council on Tuesday approved spending a maximum
of $50,000 on a consultant to scout possible stadium sites for a
new football team, according to the L.A. TIMES.  City Councilman
Mike Hernandez said the city is interested in about five sites,
and the consultants will analyze up to 12 sites in their report
(L.A. TIMES, 12/7).  Columnist Kevin Starr notes the challenge
for Football LA, the group seeking a team for the area, is more
than just finding a location and building a stadium, it is to
"help reform -- and redeem -- professional football" (L.A. TIMES,
12/8).
     WHO WILL PLAY THERE?  Sources at L.A. City Hall say the city
has had discussions with the Eagles, according to Mike Bruton of
the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.  But the source says "there is little
chance" the team would move because L.A. doesn't have the money
to offer deals like the offers in Baltimore and Nashville
(PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 12/8).
