OK COMPUTER: BUCS HAVE COMPUTER ASSIGN SEATS AT NEW STADIUM

          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).
