FLUTIE'S SUCCESS CONTINUES TO PUSH BILLS TOWARD SALES GOAL

          The Bills have sold "an average of 104 sideline club
     seats a day over the past two weeks," leaving them $1.5M shy
     of their $11M sales goal, which would trigger $63.2M in
     state funds for renovations to Bills Stadium, according to
     Leo Roth of the Rochester DEMOCRAT & CHRONICLE.  The Bills
     have sold all but five of their 164 proposed luxury boxes
     and 4,500 of their 6,878 sideline club seats.  Roth: "The
     lease deal seems all but a lock."  Bills Treasurer Jeffrey
     Littmann: "At this pace, we will get it done."  Roth wrote
     that Doug Flutie "Fever and ... wildly popular Tuesday night
     stadium tours" have helped the sales initiative.  Littmann
     said people are "having a ball" on the weekly stadium tours. 
     (Rochester DEMOCRAT & CHRONICLE, 11/1).  The BUFFALO NEWS'
     Gene Warner wrote that almost 300 prospective club-seat
     buyers "flocked" to last week's stadium tour and "bought 188
     club seats on the spot" (BUFFALO NEWS, 11/1).     
           A SHORT STORY: ABC's Jon Frankel profiled Bills QB
     Doug Flutie on Friday's "World News Tonight."  Frankel:
     "'Flutie Flakes' are flying off the shelves. ... Who says
     nice guys finish last?  Score one for the little guys" (ABC,
     10/30).  But Don Imus said he was "sick" of the attention
     toward Flutie: "We're sick of the Flutie Flakes thing, we're
     sick of all of that" ("Imus in the Morning," MSNBC, 11/2).
