THE REAL BUD BOWL IS GOING TO BE IN NASHVILLE

     Oilers Owner Bud Adams gave a brief update Thursday at the
NFL owners meetings on his plans to move his team to Nashville.
Following the update, most NFL owners said Adams "easily will be
able to get" approval to move, according to the HOUSTON
CHRONICLE.  At the advice of Oilers officials, Adams had no
comment.  But Raiders Owner Al Davis noted, "My sense is that the
consensus is in favor of Bud.  Houston is doing nothing to block
the move, and Bud is part of the old guard that tends to take
care of itself."  Houston Mayor Bob Lanier has said if the Oilers
leave and the NFL doesn't give Houston another team, the city may
challenge the NFL as a monopoly (John Williams, HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, 1/19).
