BALTIMORE OFFICIALS SET A COURSE FOR L.A. -- RAMMING SPEED?
Published September 13, 1994
MD Gov. William Schaefer heads to L.A. for an "economic development trip" this weekend during which he is expected to meet with Rams officials. Schaefer has made a Baltimore NFL franchise "a top priority" for the remainder of his term. Rams spokesperson Heidi Sinclair said a "courtesy meeting" between Schaefer and Rams president John Shaw "appears" likely to take place. Orioles owner Peter Angelos is also expected to be in L.A. this week. (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 9/13). In a related piece, Ken Rosenthal calls Angelos "the Napoleon of baseball owners, exiled to Elba" and reports he has made the NFL franchise his "new diversion" (Ken Rosenthal, Baltimore SUN, 9/13). SOUR GRAPES? Rosenthal responds to the announcement that the Buccaneers are not for sale: "Who are these people kidding? Of course, the Bucs are for sale. They're just trying to dupe their fans into believing otherwise, so that maybe more of them will come to games" (Baltimore SUN, 9/13). But in Tampa this morning, Joe Henderson counters that the Bucs "were never for sale" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/13).
