THE BIG JACK UNDERGOING CHANGES AFTER ITS INAUGURAL SEASON

          Jack Kent Cooke Stadium will undergo renovations
     "costing several million dollars" to be completed before the
     '98 NFL season, according to Solomon & Heath of the
     WASHINGTON POST.  Redskins President John Kent Cooke said
     that "the additions would be privately financed" and that
     "there would be no increase in ticket prices for the
     upcoming season."  The planned changes include "enclosing
     with glass the concourses surrounding the two levels of
     executive suites, plus the club level, and creating a new
     enclosed lobby."  The four stadium restaurants will also be
     "upgraded."  By the end of the '97 season, 3,000 of the
     15,000 stadium club seats were unsold, and "about 15" of the
     208 luxury boxes also were unsold (WASHINGTON POST, 2/19).
