BARRY DC VICTORY MAY IMPACT REDSKINS MOVE
Published September 16, 1994
Marion Barry's decisive win in this week's District of Columbia mayoral Democratic primary "may have put the city back in the running for the Redskins." Yesterday, Barry kept a campaign promise to call Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke "to persuade him" not to move the team to Laurel, MD. Cooke would not say what was discussed or whether there is anything Barry could do to keep the Redskins in Washington. Cooke: "That's business between him and me" (Katherine Richards and Jon Morgan, BALTIMORE SUN, 9/16). FIRST WE MOVE, THEN WE SELL: In this morning's WASHINGTON TIMES, columnist Jeff Nesbit asks why Abe Pollin wants to move the Bullets and Capitals from USAir Arena. Nesbit: "Why does Abe Pollin want to move? To correct a huge mistake he made two decades ago, bring the fans back to Bullets games, and in the end, remove an albatross that has made it all but impossible to sell the Bullets or Capitals" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/16).
