FOR MIAMI SPORTS ARENAS, ARE TWO HEADS BETTER THAN ONE?

     The ability of two new arenas in Miami to generate enough
money through skyboxes and club seating is questioned in the
MIAMI HERALD.  Gregg Fields writes that not only does Miami have
few large companies, but lucrative skyboxes have a history of not
selling out.  The Miami Arena's 18 skyboxes have never sold out
and Joe Robbie Stadium has only 155 of its 197 sky boxes leased -
- and many of those are up for renewal.  In addition, building
separate arenas for basketball and hockey would pit the two
against each other in trying to sell expensive seating.  Business
consultant Doug Logan:  "You take a city like Miami, which
doesn't have an abundance of Fortune 500 companies, and it almost
dictates choosing one over another.  The war among facilities is
going to be unbelievable" (MIAMI HERALD, 5/5).
