VIKES OWNERS MEET, EXPRESS FRUSTRATION OVER STADIUM ISSUE

          The Vikings' ownership group met during their monthly
     Board of Dir meeting yesterday, but afterward team President
     Roger Headrick expressed only "his frustration with his
     inability to present the team's case for a new stadium" to
     Gov. Arne Carlson, according to Don Banks of the Minneapolis
     STAR TRIBUNE.  Headrick, who has said that the team needs a
     new stadium and that renovations to the Metrodome "won't
     work," requested a meeting with Carlson late last week, but
     the Governor "reiterated" that the Vikings' needs are
     "secondary" until the Twins stadium talks are completed
     (STAR TRIBUNE, 11/5).  In St. Paul, Jeff Seidel reports that
     Philip Maas, one of the Vikings' 10 principal owners, said
     the board agreed that Headrick would be the team's only
     representative to the media (ST. PAUL STAR TRIBUNE, 11/5).
