  • SPANOS READY TO BUST A MOVE IF STADIUM CONSTRUCTION HALTED

              Chargers President Dean Spanos said the team will move
         its entire '97 home schedule to the Rose Bowl if a Superior
         Court judge halts construction at Jack Murphy Stadium next
         Thursday, according to Barry Bloom in the SAN DIEGO UNION-
         TRIBUNE.  Spanos said he and Rose Bowl President Al Moses
         have an oral agreement, and a contingency contract should be
         signed by next week (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 2/14). San
         Diego-based Qualcomm Chair Irwin Jacobs has offered to "make
         a deal with the city that would resolve the funding
         controversy and put the high-tech company's name" on Jack
         Murphy Stadium (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 2/14).        
              SUPER BOWL: The NFL has adopted a contingency plan to
         hold the '98 Super Bowl at the Rose Bowl if it becomes
         necessary to move the game from Jack Murphy (Rose Bowl).

  • STADIUM NOTES

              AZ Industrial Commission investigators have found a
         dozen safety violations and have recommended $8,000 in fines
         in the October 9 death of a man at the Bank One Ballpark
         construction site (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 2/14)....Mariners VP
         Paul Isaki said the team is "reviewing a contingency plan"
         to play an extra year at the Kingdome, rather than move into

  • USTA TAKES A SECOND SERVE AT NAMING NEW U.S. OPEN STADIUM

              "Strong protests" from the tennis community have forced
         the USTA's board of directors to reconsider its decision to
         name its new U.S. Open facility USTA Stadium, instead of in
         memory of Arthur Ashe, according to Doug Smith in USA TODAY. 
         Last month, USTA President Harry Marmion said the board
         advised Ashe's widow, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, that the
         23,000-seat facility would be named USTA Stadium.  But
         Marmion now says that the board will meet Sunday and Monday
         in Atlanta to "reconsider" the name (USA TODAY, 2/14).

  • WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE: BENGALS AGREE TO NEW STADIUM SITE

              The Bengals have agreed to a location for their new
         stadium between Elm St. and Central Ave., immediately north
         of Mehring Way.  The facility will include a new Bengals
         front office and a new practice facility.  The stadium is to
         open with the 2000 NFL season (Bengals).  Hamilton County
         will now try to "relocate eight companies on the site,"
         according to Anne Michaud of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER.  Land
         acquisition may take six to nine months, and county
         officials "expect construction to begin" in early '98.  The
         county and the Bengals are working toward a June 30 deadline
         to sign a lease (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/14).
