DOME COULD DELAY NEW BROWNS

     Cleveland Mayor Michael White "intensified" his quest for a
domed stadium yesterday, saying he would consider delaying the
arrival of the new "Browns" until as late as 2001 to "accommodate
construction."  White: "If it took a few extra months to get this
done, [a dome] is far more important to this community in the
long run than whether the Browns are going to be here."  White
revealed the city's deal with the NFL allows Cleveland to "push
back" the arrival of the "new Browns" as late as 2001, but that a
delay is unlikely unless he locates the extra money needed for a
dome.  The city has agreed to notify the NFL by March 24 if it
plans to build a dome instead of a 72,000-seat open stadium (Bart
Hubbuch, Akron BEACON JOURNAL, 2/15).
