BUCS STADIUM ISSUE CLOSE AS CONTROL ISSUE REPORTEDLY SETTLED

     Tampa officials have reportedly agreed to give the Bucs
control over operation and maintenance of a planned $168M new
stadium, according to today's TAMPA TRIBUNE.  The Tampa Stadium
Authority's role in a new stadium "may be substantially reduced"
pending further approval from the Tampa City Council and the
Hillsborough County Commission.  This issue was seen as the "last
major hang-up" to a new stadium deal.  Tampa Mayor Dick Greco
said "no major issues remain unresolved between city and county
officials and the Bucs."  Some officials fear Bucs control of a
new stadium "could hurt" efforts to attract other tenants.  The
Bucs also have asked for all revenue from advertising at the
stadium for all events (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/21).
