I would like to make a response to the letter on the subject of the Bill Polian Show. The writer is absolutely correct in disbelieving the figure of 75,000 as the average seating capacity of NFL stadiums. Mr. Polian should get his facts straight before making such a statement.

According to the 1990 handbook of Pro Football only the Los Angeles Coliseum with 92,487 and Detroit's Silver Dome with 80,500 have larger seating capacities than Rich Stadium, and the NFL average is only 68,500.

When the Bills sell 78,000 plus seats like they usually do, they are selling nearly 10,000 more seats than the NFL average seating capacity.

Stealing the TV signal is not right, but neither is the blackout rule as it now stands.
