TAGLIABUE CONCERNED ABOUT CLEVELAND-REDUX IN STEEL TOWN

     NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue is "worried the same thing
may occur" with the Steelers that happened to the Browns in
Cleveland if a new baseball-only stadium is built for the
Pirates, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE.  In an
interview with the GAZETTE's Ed Bouchette, Tagliabue noted
"similarities" between the Pittsburgh's recent agreement with new
Pirates Owner Kevin McClatchy to fund a new stadium within two
years and the building of Jacobs Field and Gund Arena in
Cleveland.  Tagliabue called for Pittsburgh to build a multi-
purpose stadium to house both teams, in the hopes that the city
can "set an example for the country" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE,
3/17).
