              A preliminary draft of conditions the City of Denver
         has set for the Broncos calls for the team to commit to
         playing at a new stadium in Denver for 25 years in order to
         be released from its Mile High lease, according to Alan Snel
         of the DENVER POST.  The metro football stadium district
         also would have to buy property at the Denver Sports Complex
         -- the proposed new stadium site -- from the city, "while
         the Broncos would be responsible for paying the city for
         demolishing Denver-owned Mile High."  The document serves as
         the city's "starting point" for negotiating the terms in
         which the Broncos could break their Mile High lease, which
         expires in 2018.  Although the document addresses "several
         key topics," Snel writes that one of its "biggest unanswered
         questions is the amount of money the Broncos will compensate
         the city to cover Mile High's debt refinancing and parking-
         area acquisitions from 1985" (DENVER POST, 12/18).
