STADIUM NOTES

     A ban on smoking in McNichols Sports Arena takes effect this
Sunday.  Smokers will now be forced to two areas outside the
arena (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS,9/10)....In L.A., city officials are
reportedly uniting in support of renovations for the Coliseum,
which could cost between $150M and $200M to be home to an NFL
team.  Although no specifics were announced, an administrator for
the city said that the NFL has expressed an interest in hearing
the renovation plans.  NFL Dir of Communications Greg Aiello said
the league would "prefer a new, state-of-the-art facility."  But
he indicated that the NFL is "willing to listen to any plan,
including one for the Coliseum"  (LOS ANGLES BUSINESS JOURNAL,
9/2).....In a Boston Globe/WBZ-TV poll of 404 likely voters,
conducted September 4-5 by KRC/Communications Research, 44% said
a new stadium for the Patriots should be paid for with no public
money, 31% favored a mix of public and private funds, and 8% said
taxpayers should "pick up the whole tab" (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/11).
