GLAZER WILL "ABSOLUTELY NOT" HELP FINANCE NEW FACILITY
Published January 23, 1995
New Buccaneer Owner Malcom Glazer said he will "absolutely not" help pay for the construction of a new facility for his team. Glazer: "We have done our part financially. We bought the team. We paid a big price. And we need now the cooperation of the community for this stadium. ... The stadium is something the community has to do" (Tom Jackson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/21). The Tampa Sports Authority will form a special committee to "research the financing and design of stadiums built in recent years." Authority Chair Chuck Davis will name committee members next week, and hopes to deliver recommendations in six months. Davis said he believes a new stadium could be built in three years (Kevin Walker, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/21).
