LOS ANGELES MAYOR READY TO "EXPLORE OPTIONS" OF NFL STADIUM
Published October 26, 1994
L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan and City Council President John Ferraro have told NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue they are ready to "jointly explore options" on providing a stadium as a permanent home for the Super Bowl and NFL theme park. Deputy Mayor Robin Kramer maintained, however, that the mayor's office is primarily concerned with renovating the Coliseum: "The mayor unambiguously feels the Coliseum is the crown jewel of sports." Kramer said Riordan is considering Tagliabue's proposal to "leave the door open to the NFL's interest in our city" (Kenneth Reich, L.A. TIMES, 10/26).
