     Many reports over the weekend note the Packers' decision not
to play in Milwaukee "follows a decade of talks about a new
stadium" in Milwaukee.  Brewers owner Bud Selig said he will now
concentrate on trying to create financing for a baseball-only
stadium, saving about $20-25M off the cost of a multi-purpose
facility (Mult., 10/16)....L.A. County Supervisor Mike Antonovich
has introduced a motion barring the county from spending any
funds on the construction of a stadium proposed by NFL
Commissioner Paul Tagliabue.  Antonovich: "The taxpayers have
just spent $60 million this year to repair and renovate the
Coliseum to keep it as the home of the Raiders and USC and make
it an appropriate site for a Super Bowl" (Mult., 10/16).
