A Ohio Poll, sponsored by the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Univ. of Cincinnati, shows that 68% of Ohioans said pro sports teams are not important enough to spend tax money on stadiums and coliseums for the teams; 31% said sports teams are important enough and 1% didn't know. A sample of 839 OH adults were interviewed from January 20-February 3. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.4% (ENQUIRER, 3/1). OTHER NOTES: In Denver, columnist Bob Kravitz writes that the Broncos' deal, as currently presented, "leaves me feeling like there is a better, fairer deal out there that puts more of the economic burden on private interests and the folks who actually use the stadium." He calls on the CO House to examine the deal passed by the Senate more closely (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 3/2)....49ers co-Owner Denise DeBartolo York "effectively shut down" DeBartolo Entertainment (DBE), the company her brother, Eddie, had said would develop the team's stadium complex. DBE reportedly let go "about a dozen of its 15 employees" in a "move that would indicate" that DeBartolo York is in control of the stadium project (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 3/1).
