PLAYER "UPRISING" LEADS TO SOLOMON OUT AS AVP CEO, USHER IN

          The AVP Board of Directors announced that Harry Usher
     has been named the AVP's interim CEO, effective immediately. 
     Usher replaces previous CEO Jerry Solomon.  In a statement,
     the AVP announced that Solomon's consulting agreement was
     mutually terminated by his management company, P.S.
     StarGames, and the AVP Board.  Usher was COO of the '84
     Summer Olympics in L.A., and also served as Commissioner of
     the USFL and President & CEO of Dorna USA.  The AVP
     celebrates its 15th anniversary in '98 and the Miller
     Lite/AVP Tour's six-month season starts in March (AVP).  
          CALIFORNIA DREAMING: BRANDWEEK's Terry Lefton reports
     that Solomon is "out" after "a player uprising."  Lefton
     adds that sources said "players were distressed about the
     league's financial condition and its hq being in Boston,
     where Solomon lives," instead of CA.  Usher's post "is said
     to be on a three-month interim basis" (BRANDWEEK, 1/12).
