PHILADELPHIA LAUDS THE ARRIVAL OF NEW SPORTS OWNERS

     A sampling of reaction in Philadelphia on Comcast's purchase
of the 76ers, Flyers, and the two arenas:
     An editorial in today's PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS:  "There
probably should be some concerns about the nation's teams
controlled by fewer and fewer (and richer and more powerful)
owners ... But what is is, and what was wasn't always so rosy as
we recall" (PHILA. DAILY NEWS, 3/21).  An INQURIER editorial bids
a not-so-fond-farewell to 76ers Owner Harold Katz, and says,
"It's nice to see Philadelphia sports catching the rising wave
for once."  Despite the risks that "corporations of media power
always creates losers and risks for consumers ... this new show
will be more intriguing than the tired acts that have bombed at
the Spectrum of late" (PHILADELPHIA INQURIER, 3/21).
