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).
