REPORTS HAVE ED SNIDER SNOOPING AROUND THE METRODOME

          Flyers & 76ers Chair Ed Snider met last week with the
     Vikings' Wheelock Whitney and other members of the committee
     appointed to sell the team, according to Sid Hartman of the
     Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE.  Whitney "refused to confirm the
     visit," but Hartman wrote that Snider "did tour the
     Metrodome and is a serious candidate to buy the club" (STAR
     TRIBUNE, 1/10).  In St. Paul, Charley Walters reported that
     it's "a decent bet" that Snider "would form a management
     company to operate the Metrodome if he can acquire the
     Vikings."  Walters: "If Snider, regarded in the professional
     sports business as a fair and good operator with a 'regular
     guy' reputation, were to purchase the Vikings, he could
     manage the Metrodome, as well as its concession service,
     under a 20- to 30-year lease" (PIONEER PRESS, 1/11).
