AFRICAN-AMERICAN PACKERS UPSET ABOUT NO MILWAUKEE GAMES

     Some of the Packers' African-American players were upset
with the decision by the team to stop playing in Milwaukee.
Packers DB Terrell Buckley: "Let's face it, here in Green Bay,
there's not a black community.  That's one thing I enjoyed about
going to Milwaukee, seeing African Americans down there
supporting games.  That will be the sad part of leaving."  Reggie
White: "It's important to be visible in Milwaukee. ... I guess
we're going to have to get more involved now.  Maybe some way we
can get inner-city kids to come up and see games.  I think that's
something we should consider" (Keith Lyons, WASHINGTON TIMES,
10/14).
