CFL TO MOVE OUT OF SACRAMENTO -- ARE THEY OAKLAND BOUND?
Published October 25, 1994
Sacramento Gold Miners owner Fred Anderson announced yesterday he will move the team after this season because efforts to build a new stadium have failed. Anderson was granted the franchise with the "understanding" that the team would move out of the 24,000-seat Hornet Field. Anderson blames the facility for his $10M loss in the team's two years and said without "support from the politicians and dang little from business" he cannot stay. Anderson is considering three sites, but CFL Commissioner Larry Smith "expects" the team to go to Oakland calling a stadium lease a "key" element. However, Oakland Alameda County Supervisor Ron Perata was recently quoted as saying the CFL is "just a little ahead of tractor pulls, roller- blade hockey, and arena football -- and with them, you're just a valley town" (CANADIAN PRESS/WINNIPEG SUN, 10/25).
