Oilers Owner Bud Adams made a "rare appearance" at the Oilers minicamp where he called Houston a "great football city" and said "they deserve to have another team" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 6/13)...Rangers President and GM Neil Smith has received a contract extension, of five more year worth a reported total of close to $7M (N.Y. POST, 6/13).
The Ravens have sold nearly 90% of the season tickets available for their debut season, "despite above average prices and an unpopular licensing requirement," according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore SUN. Wednesday was the deadline for first-day priority and all applications received by then will be randomly sorted by a computer and assigned seats. Applications received after that will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Since Wednesday, the team has processed 50,118 tickets with additional requests left to finish. That represents about 88% of the 57,000 season tickets available for next season. Ticket prices averaged just over $400 for a 10-game plan along with a $100 deposit per ticket on a seat license for the team's new stadium. Morgan writes Ravens officials, "who had been privately anxious in the past few weeks," were happy with the news. Team spokesperson Kevin Byrne said they figured 30,000-40,000 sales a "respectable showing" (Baltimore SUN, 6/14).
