FRANCHISE NOTES

          In Edmonton, Jac MacDonald reports that Alberta
     Treasury Branches (ATB) "has tightened its grip" on the
     business affairs of the NHL Oilers by appointing its second
     rep on the team's Board of Directors.  Oilers COO John
     Ramsey has joined Robert Kallir and Owner Peter Pocklington
     on the boards of the Oilers and Coliseum Management. 
     Kallir, who is ATB's General Counsel, was appointed to the
     board last spring.  Each of the directors has a single vote
     on team affairs (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 1/7)....In Dallas, the
     smallest Reunion Arena crowd in 14 years, 8,833, watched the
     Mavericks beat the Nuggets last night (DALLAS MORNING NEWS,
     1/7)....NEWSDAY's Rob Parker, on the Nets' desire to move
     out of Continental Airlines Arena: "It's time to move off
     Exit 16W of the New Jersey Turnpike. ... No matter how you
     slice it, they will ultimately never make it there"
     (NEWSDAY, 1/7)....In St. Paul, columnist Jim Caple writes
     the Vikings must "dump Roger Headrick from control as team
     president.  Headrick's disgraceful management has held the
     Vikings back more than anyone.  If the team is to have any
     hope in the future, he must go first" (PIONEER PRESS, 1/7).
