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).
