TICKET REPORT: COLTS EXPECT RCA DOME TO BE PEYTON'S PLACE

          The Colts are coming off of a "dismal" 3-13 season, but
     Mike Chappell of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS reports that the
     ticket base "is one of the team's strongest of the decade." 
     Colts Dir of Ticket Sales Greg Hylton "expects the team's
     season-ticket base to hit 40,000."  At midweek, it was
     between 38,000 and 39,000.  Last season's was 36,500. 
     Chappell cites new team leadership, in the form of President
     Bill Polian and coach Jim Mora, and the selection of No. 1
     draft pick QB Payton Manning, as reasons for the sales.  The
     team had a 90% renewal rate from last year's ticket holders. 
     They are also offering mini-packages this year, and to date,
     2,600 five-game sets and 1,200 three-game sets have been
     sold.  Hylton: "We're up all across the board."  The Colts
     increased their ticket sales staff this year to include five
     people who "pound the pavement full-time" and four more who
     work "primarily" in-office (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 8/13).
