ANGELOS TO MEET WITH BUCS, "MIGHT" OFFER RECORD $200M
Published November 18, 1994
Orioles Owner Peter Angelos meets with the officials from the Buccaneers today and "might offer up to $200 million to buy the team and move it." The high price of Angelos' offer would be made up through lucrative stadium arrangements, which could force the hand of Tampa officials "in the battle for dollars to keep the Bucs from leaving town." As reported yesterday, the Tampa Sports Authority is proposing a multi-million dollar renovation project for Tampa Stadium, but elected officials are split on how it should be paid for (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/18). OUTSIDE FORCES? Former Patriots Owner Victor Kiam's lawsuit against the NFL could have a bearing on franchise relocations. Kiam claims the NFL and several of its owners "conspired to interfere with every effort to sell the team to a purchaser who would relocate the team" (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 11/18). "If successful, the lawsuit could force the league to ease its restrictions on location" Pat Yasinskas, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/18).
