DALLAS -- Houston Oilers Owner Bud Adams has demanded that Houston city officials decide whether they are interested in helping finance a $245 million downtown domed stadium within two months, or the foot. ball team will step up negotiations with a northern suburb, an executive said Friday.

"We are running out of time," said Mike McClure, an Oilers vice president "If we don't get an indication within the next two months, it will be impossible to build the stadium in downtown Houston and meet our timetable. We will seriously consider other options."
