Published November 28, 1994
On NBC's "NFL Live," Will McDonough reported that Toronto investors, led by John LaBatt Ltd., will make a "strong bid" to buy the Buccaneers and move them to Canada (NBC, 11/24). Paul Godfrey, President and CEO of the Toronto Sun, who is also "spearheading" the bid, said that while the they we're interested in the team, they recognized that the NFL wants to keep the team in Tampa. Godfrey: "We will continue to monitor Tampa, but there are other possibilities that we know of and we will monitor those as well" (Gary Picknell, TORONTO SUN, 11/25). In Tampa, trustees of the team will meet this week with Dixon Ticonderoga President Gino Pala. Pala is one of many potential local buyers who have meetings with team officials (Nick Pugliese, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/28).
