  • 3COM CLEARS HURDLE IN SECURING LONG-TERM NAMING RIGHTS

         The S.F. Parks Commission voted unanimously yesterday to
    accept a deal worth at least $4M to keep the 3Com name over
    Candlestick Park at least through the end of '99, according to
    the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS.  The deal now faces a vote next month
    by city supervisors.  Despite concerns from Mayor Willie Brown,
    commission Chair Jack Immendorf notes the deal is actually worth
    $5.5M, as 3Com will pay for signage and agreed to buy $350,000 in
    stadium ads each year (Richard Sandoval, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS,
    1/19).  MORE S.F.: Opponents of a proposed $225M baseball stadium
    for the Giants have begun distributing fliers over concerns about
    parking (Michael Dorgan, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 1/19).

  • CHICAGO CONSULTANT WANTS TO FACILITATE BEARS PROBLEMS

         Marc Ganis, president of the Chicago-based SportsCorp Ltd.,
    said he wants help mediate stadium negotiations between the Bears
    and the city of Chicago, according to the CHICAGO TRIBUNE.
    Ganis' firm specializes in large-scale sports negotiations and
    Fred Mitchell writes he has assumed a national identity as an
    "agent for teams," though Ganis says his firm also represents
    municipalities.  SportsCorp oversaw the Rams' move to St. Louis
    and most recently worked with the Raiders.  Ganis:  "People think
    negotiating with Michael McCaskey is difficult.  But they have
    never negotiated with Al Davis" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 1/19).

  • STADIUM NOTES: ARLINGTON SITE FOR DC BASEBALL STADIUM?

         A new proposal to build a baseball stadium near Arlington,
    VA's Crystal City and National Airport is gaining momentum as
    officials indicate they have concerns about the other sites
    further out in VA's suburbs.  A stadium at the Arlington site
    would offer views of the Potomac and Washington's monuments
    (WASHINGTON POST, 1/19).
