BUCS OFFICIALS MEET WITH SUBURBAN ORLANDO, AREN'T SATISFIED

     Bucs GM Rich McKay came away unsatisfied from a meeting with
officials from Osceola County, located south of Orlando, about
funding for a $200M stadium, according to this morning's TAMPA
TRIBUNE.  County Chair Charles Owen said he did not blame the
Bucs for their dissatisfaction, and will work this weekend "and
see if we can come up with something a little better" (Bill Fay,
TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/31).  In Orlando, a group representing some
Central FL hotels and attractions opposes any resort taxes for a
stadium -- "regardless of cost."  Meanwhile, the Central FL NFL
Committee met and decided to pursue an NFL team for Orlando "at
the right price."  The committee is seeking to renovate the
Citrus Bowl (Tim Turner, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 1/31).
