JOHNSON RESPONDS TO POST'S QUESTIONS ABOUT ARENA
Published December 21, 1994
BET President Robert Johnson reasserted his opposition to a plan for a new D.C. arena proposed by the National Capital Development Corp. in an op-ed in today's WASHINGTON POST. Johnson defended his own plan for a privately-funded arena and emphasized his desires for an agreement giving him minority ownership in Abe Pollin's Capitals and Bullets in exchange for BET funding the arena. Johnson: "If citizens, businesspeople and sports fans really want to save the arena, they should encourage Mr. Pollin and BET to work out a mutually agreeable deal to bring the teams to a D.C. arena complex" (WASHINGTON POST, 12/21).
