Frank del Olmo (Commentary, Oct. 10) astutely notes that the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is alive and well and financially viable, even without NFL football, and serves as a focal point for the renaissance of the entire Exposition Park campus. The return of NFL football under the appropriate terms would be beneficial to L.A., to the Coliseum and to the neighborhood. It is unfortunate that the NFL has been unable to find a way to bring professional football back to Los Angeles. When it does, the Coliseum remains the best possible place to put a team.

Last Saturday I read a letter by Sheldon H. Sloan, a member of the Coliseum Commission, still trying to say how great the Coliseum is. I have four words for Mr. Sloan: GIVE ME A BREAK! The Coliseum is an old cemetery, and the only reason it's still standing probably is USC is in the area. The Coliseum Commission has no clue, and that is the reason there is no football in Los Angeles. Mr. Sloan also said, "The Hollywood Park and South Park proposals are run by people who are in it for making a profit."

In his usual slanted, biased style, T.J. Simers once again succeeds in editorializing his way to a slam of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum while he boosts yet another project, this time in Carson [May 7]. A ceremony full of celebrities and leaders of Los Angeles, honoring one of our own, the great Pete Rozelle, took place on Monday at the Coliseum. The Times didn't print one word about it. Where was Simers? While you're at it, why not rename the paper The Carson Times? SHELDON H. SLOAN, Los Angeles (Sloan is vice president of the Coliseum Commission)

Paul W. Bernstein (letter, Aug. 18) asks, "Is Commissioner Sheldon Sloan, a lawyer, more of an expert than John F. Hall, a Caltech engineer? How can he say that enough has been done to satisfy critics of the press box work?" My bio and qualifications are available by request from the Los Angeles County Bar Assn. (of which I am the president). My qualifications include being a retired judge and holding a general contractor's license from the state of California. My statement was made after I inquired, in a public session of the Coliseum Commission, of the president of Smith-Emery, the leading inspection company in California; Nabil Youseff, the leading structural engineer in the western U.S.; a special independent expert in the inspection and testing of welds and steel structures from Seattle and the chief inspector of the L.A. City Department of Building and Safety as to whether further testing was recommended by any of them.

Tell Randy Harvey [July 22] we don't need the NFL tinhorns, they need us. Without us, they're nothing but bush league, small-time carny, hustling the rubes out of a few dollars. Let them put a team here, build a new stadium, give a generous endowment to our schools, libraries, police and fire departments--in short, earn their keep, for the privilege of doing business in the world's greatest market. In fact, let them pay a personal site license fee before they have the right to break ground on the new stadium.

Don't pack up those wooden stakes just yet, Buffy. The proposed deal to bring a National Football League team to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum may yet stir in its grave. At least, that is how local officials on both sides of the issue were acting Friday, despite the announcement that the NFL was kissing off the downtown landmark--and, thus, the prospects of pro football in Los Angeles any time soon--because state taxpayers will not cough up additional public money to sweeten the deal.

A bitter stalemate has emerged over the U.S. Department of Justice's refusal to accept three federal judgeship candidates who were recommended by Gov. Pete Wilson when he was a senator and endorsed by his successor, John Seymour. Approval has been blocked on a variety of grounds, according to some of those involved in the dispute: Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William A. Masterson is regarded by the department as too old at 60, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dzintra I.

We applaud "Disney Concert Hall: Needed by Downtown, by All of L.A." (editorial, March 31), and want to thank The Times for its support, especially during this critical time when the Walt Disney Concert Hall Corp. is organizing a major capital campaign. The leadership of the Music Center recognizes the importance of Disney Hall as a vital element in reviving downtown Los Angeles. As the Music Center positions itself to serve Los Angeles in the 21st century, the addition of Disney Hall to the Music Center complex will allow us to reach out to increasingly diverse communities.

Downey's California: Saturday afternoon's semifinal match of the Infiniti Open took 62 minutes. In men's tennis, I have seen arguments with chair umpires that last longer. Ilie Nastase needed 62 minutes to clear his throat. Thomas Enqvist of Sweden, who usually is so humorless, I call him "Coroner's" Enqvist, was the winner. He guillotined Guillaume Raoux of France, 6-4, 6-1, before a crowd at UCLA that I would estimate at well into three figures.
