     At a league meeting in Toronto, CFL commissioner Larry Smith
told owners that he had "solicited TV contract offers from two US
carriers."  Although they were not identified, Baltimore owner
Jim Speros confirmed that neither was CBS.  Any TV deal would
mean adding up to four more franchises in the U.S. Among the
cities mentioned for possible expansion: Memphis, St. Louis,
Oakland, Orlando, San Antonio, New York and Los Angeles.  New
York and L.A. are seen as the big draw for the TV executives (Ken
Murray, Baltimore SUN, 9/18).
