ORANGE COUNTY BEING BROKE MAKES IT TOUGH TO SAVE THE RAMS
Published December 9, 1994
Indications are that Orange County's financial hardship will make it more difficult for the Rams to stay in Anaheim. The team was counting on heavy financial help from the county in building a new facility, but all plans are on hold. Ernie Schneider, Chief Administrative Officer of Orange County, CA: "We probably will not be going forward with some of the projects that had relied on bond financing that we had anticipated implementing in the future" ("Moneyline," CNN, 12/8). Save the Rams spokesperson Leigh Steinberg: "Is the timing unfortunate? Of course. ... We intend to keep on battling to save the Rams." But in St. Louis, Bernie Miklasz reports indications that Save the Rams "is about to turn up the pressure" on Rams Owner Georgia Frontiere. "Be on the lookout for a flurry of nuisance lawsuits designed to make Frontiere cower from a legal challenge" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 12/9).
