TEXAS STADIUM COULD GET NEW NAME IN EXPANSION EFFORTS

     Several City Council members said Texas Stadium could get a
new name when it is expanded, according to the DALLAS MORNING
NEWS.  Texas Stadium would likely get a corporate sponsor's name
like 3Com Park in San Francisco and the RCA Dome in Indianapolis,
while the city would benefit from the millions in companies pay
for naming rights.  Dianna Hunt reports City Council member Jack
Spurlock said the money involved in a name change would make the
renovations "more palatable" (Dianna Hunt, DALLAS MORNING NEWS,
1/5).
     BUT WILL RENOVATIONS EVEN HAPPEN?  The stadium's original
architect says renovating Texas Stadium and putting a dome on it
is unrealistic.  Warren Morey, who designed Texas Stadium for
original Cowboys Owner Clint Murchison says putting a dome on the
facility would require major reinforcement of the roof support
system and expanding seating would alter the sight lines.
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones is confident it is feasible (WASHINGTON
POST, 1/7).
