              Steelers President Dan Rooney "charged yesterday that
         city and county officials are trying to force his franchise
         to assume too much of the financial burden for Plan B,"
         according to Ed Bouchette of the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. 
         Rooney, who contends that rising stadium costs would make it
         difficult to improve the Steelers' financial situation
         relative to other NFL teams, said that if talks aimed a new
         North Shore football stadium aren't settled by June 30,
         "other options will be explored."  Rooney "complained" that
         while the Steelers have pledged at least $15M more to Plan B
         that the Pirates, $50M to $35M, officials "want still more
         from them."  Rooney: "We will help, but we're not going to
         carry water for everybody."  County Commissioner Bob Cranmer
         "restated" his position that the Steelers "must increase
         their investment in the proposed football stadium." 
         Bouchette reports that if the Plan B deadline is missed, the
         team "may look at nearby counties that might be interested
         in building a football stadium" (POST-GAZETTE, 6/4).
