RENT ISSUE UPSETS BRONCO OWNER

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is upset that a team hoping to get a baseball expansion franchise may be allowed to use Mile High Stadium rent free.

"If they think we're going to be happy with this, they're living on a different planet," Bowlen said Friday.Under a proposed lease agreed upon by the Denver Baseball Partnership and the city, the team would pay no rent during the first two seasons and would also keep a large share of the food and beverage concessions.

"We're obviously not going to be very happy to see somebody who's competing for the same sports dollar as we are, on a different playing field," Bowlen said.
