NFL: The Bucs announced that all 80 luxury suites built during Phase One suite construction of its new stadium have been leased. The suites range in price from $55,000- 85,000 with lease terms of five, seven, or 10 years (Bucs). NHL: Hurricanes Owner Peter Karmanos, on early-season attendance: "If we had played a lame duck year in Hartford, we probably would have lost $20 million to $25 million ... [in Greensboro] if we average 7,000 or 8,000 people a game ... we would lose about 5 million bucks. ... And when the team gets to Raleigh, that's pay dirt. I think it's sellout time. I think we get a three-year honeymoon here. That means we don't have to win for three years" (Cliff Mehrtens, CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/15)....The crowd of 12,530 for Monday night's Hurricanes-Blues game was the lowest ever at the Kiel Center (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/14). MLB: Marlins Owner Wayne Huizenga was asked by NBC's Jim Gray after the Marlins won the NL pennant whether he would reconsider his plans to sell the team. Huizenga: "I'm not even thinking about that. Well, we'll have to think that thing through later" (NBC, 10/14)....Last night's sellout crowd of 50,446 for Marlins-Braves Game 6 was the largest ever at Turner Field (ORLANDO SUN-SENTINEL, 10/15).
