FOOTBALL INCLUDED IN RENOVATIONS TO OAKLAND COLISEUM

     Oakland Alameda County Coliseum officials "are privately
looking" at about $50-70M in renovations to the stadium,"
according to this morning's SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE.  The
renovations will be "complete with retractable bleachers" to for
both baseball and football.  Coliseum Board President George
Vukasin said they don't want to "out-renovate" so that they can't
"handle football when the 49ers are dissatisfied with Candlestick
Park five years from now and they want to move to a newer, more
modern facility" (Matier & Ross, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 3/20).
