              John Elway will reportedly return to the Broncos for
         one more season, and in Denver, Susan Greene writes that
         stadium boosters said his return "should hike support for a
         tax to pay for a new Broncos stadium (DENVER POST, 6/1). 
         But John Ensslin reports that pollster Paul Talmey predicted
         "no gain for either side on the field of public opinion." 
         The Bonham Group CEO Dean Bonham said "two of the keys" to
         the stadium debate are getting Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen "out
         of the picture and Elway in" (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 6/1)...
         ...The Packers have selected MO-based Ellerbe Becket to
         renovate Lambeau Field, with initial work set to begin in
         early '99 and the project set to be done within about five
         years (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 5/30).

              The Bucs will use a computer to assign seats for
         season-ticket holders in their new stadium, according to
         Ernest Hooper of the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES.  Bucs
         VP/Marketing & Communications Rick McNerney said that the
         decision was made because of ongoing construction at the
         stadium.  The computer will rank season-ticket holders
         "based on established priorities: how long they've been a
         season-ticket holder and when they committed to the seat-
         charter program."  Season-ticket holders who made charter-
         seat deposits on or before October 25, 1995, "will have the
         highest priority."  The computer will allocate seats in mid-
         June after all of the seats have been installed and the
         manifest is established.  Hooper noted that the Bucs'
         season-ticket applications "did not allow fans to specify
         preferences for the section they chose," which could lead to
         "some disappointed fans at the home opener" on September 20. 
         The Ravens used a similar computer seating plan for Memorial
         Stadium two years ago (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 5/30).
