RAVENS STATUE ON HOLD; AUTHORITY WANTS TEAM TO PAY

          The MD Stadium Authority has put its plans to put a
     $253,000, four-ton raven on top of the Ravens new downtown
     football stadium "on hold," according to Jon Morgan of the
     Baltimore SUN.  MSA Chair John Moag had said that he "hoped"
     the Ravens could contribute "at least" $50,000 to the
     project, but yesterday Moag and MSA Exec Dir Bruce Hoffman
     said that they "hope the team or a corporate sponsor" can
     cover the entire cost of the project.  Hoffman: "Our budget
     is tight.  Until we get the funding, we can't go forward." 
     Ravens VP/PR Kevin Byrne said that the team is looking into
     the costs and benefits of the statue (Baltimore SUN, 10/24).
