  • HUNT LEAVING FATE OF CREW STADIUM IN HANDS OF THE VOTERS

              MLS Crew Owner Lamar Hunt said that he "doesn't plan to
         take an active role" in a Dublin, OH, referendum that will
         decide whether his sports group can develop a stadium for the
         team, according to Jeff Ortega of the COLUMBUS DISPATCH. 
         Hunt: "We're really just pretty much leaving it as a process
         that the people in Dublin need to do."  A special February 10
         election will decide if the city of Dublin will participate
         in a public/private partnership with Hunt Sports Group on a
         30,000-seat stadium (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 12/6).

  • POLITICIANS SAY THUMBS DOWN TO STATE AID FOR PACKERS

              "Still stinging from the political battle over funding"
         for the new Brewers ballpark, "key" legislators and WI Gov.
         Tommy Thompson said Friday that the Packers "might have a
         tough time getting state funding for a proposed Lambeau Field
         expansion," according to Jones & Walters of the MILWAUKEE
         JOURNAL SENTINEL.  Packers President Bob Harlan has said the
         team might seek financial support from the state to help fund
         the expansion.  Thompson: "They'd have to have a very good
         proposal before it would pass."  Assembly Majority Leader
         Stephen Foti, noting the Packers' ongoing stock sale: "The
         Packers can afford it themselves.  That was the purpose of
         the stock offer" (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 12/6).
