BOWLEN PLEDGES TO KEEP TEAM IN DENVER IF STADIUM IS FINANCED

     Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has promised to keep the team in
Denver if voters approve a tax measure to help finance a new
stadium.  Bowlen, as quoted in yesterday's Colorado Springs
GAZETTE TELEGRAPH:  "If we get a new stadium deal done, I'm here
the rest of my life."  It "was the first time Bowlen has publicly
promised" not to leave Denver if voters agree to pay more of the
$260M cost of a new stadium.  He said he is "willing to put his
promise into writing."  Bowlen is trying to convince lawmakers to
have voters decide whether to extend the one cent-per-$10 sales
tax used to fund Coors Field for the Broncos new facility.  If
they do, Bowlen would "negotiate a no-move clause into the
Broncos' new lease" (Colorado Springs GAZETTE TELEGRAPH, 2/27).
