The city of Denver is "lobbying to remove" the $100M cap on the Broncos' contribution to the team's proposed new stadium. City Projects Dir Liz Orr said that the city wants the Broncos to "share responsibility for cost overruns with the public" (DENVER POST, 3/10). The Broncos announced that they would not raise ticket prices next season. Owner Pat Bowlen: "A ticket increase is not going to solve our financial problems. A new stadium is going to solve our financial problems" (DENVER POST, 3/10)....Beginning today, the Padres will hold a series of monthly workshops at Qualcomm Stadium, where "as many as" 30 members of the public can make suggestions about features for the team's proposed new ballpark (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 3/8).
