REDSKINS OWNER CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A HOME
Published February 14, 1995
Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke is considering "fallback" sites for the building of his stadium if his first choice, Laurel MD, does not work out, according to today's Baltimore SUN. Other MD sites Cooke is considering include Prince George's County, Suitland, and the USAir Arena in Landover, as well as a site in Loudon County, VA. Cooke says "staying in Washington does not appear likely." Despite these comments, political leaders in Washington "appear to have been the most persistent wooing the team and still hold out hopes of persuading the Redskins to stay" (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 2/14). In his column today, John Hawkins writes that by threatening to move the Redskins to St. Petersburg, Cooke would get the cooperation he needs to build a new stadium (WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/14).
