SHREVEPORT PIRATES GET NO CREDIT
Published October 6, 1994
Lonie Glieberman, president of the CFL Shreveport Pirates, asked taxpayers to guarantee a loan of up to $4.5M over three years to pay bills the team has not met because of low attendance this season. But a poll of 200 Shreveport residents shows that 63% oppose any loan. Only 21% favored the loan (David Westerfield, SHREVEPORT TIMES, 10/5). LA Gov. Edwin Edwards turned Glieberman down for state funds last week. Pirates owner Bernie Glieberman said despite the team's financial troubles, it is not for sale and there is "no reason" to believe the team will not be in Shreveport next year (Cooper & Heitholt, SHREVEPORT TIMES, 10/5).
