LEAGUE NOTES

          FOOTBALL: USA TODAY's Gordon Forbes writes on the
     franchise fee for the Browns and wonders, "Is [Cowboys
     Owner] Jerry Jones playing mind games with the bidders by
     predicting a $700M bid?"  Jones: "I don't think I'm being
     overly optimistic.  Remember, I'm the guy who said the NFL
     was in the position of having television revenues double"
     (USA TODAY, 6/5)...The Marquee Group's Mike Trager, on the
     NBC/Turner proposed football league: "We did the research on
     the All-American League, which is similar to NBC's and
     Turner's model.  Our research found a demand for another pro
     football league in the spring-summer" (USA TODAY, 6/5). 
          SEEKING SPONSORS: Women's Sports Foundation Exec Dir
     Donna Lopiano and Silver Bullets manager Phil Niekro will
     travel to Hartford in the next few weeks for "discussions
     with potential sponsors" for the team (HART. COURANT, 6/5).
