ANGELOS HEARING "RUMBLINGS" ABOUT TROUBLE ON BUCS SALE
Published February 16, 1995
With reports that Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer's failed stock sale may put his deal for the team "in danger," Orioles Owner and Bucs suitor Peter Angelos said he has spoken with Bucs trust member Steve Story about the deal. Angelos "inquired" about whether the Bucs sale was in jeopardy. Angelos: "There are rumblings and they may be unfounded. But if not, we will renew our efforts" (Baltimore SUN, 2/16). ADVICE FOR GLAZER: If Glazer commits $10M toward a new stadium in Tampa as soon as his ownership is approved by the NFL, "Tampa Bay would be his," according to Gary Shelton of the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. Shelton writes, "We are not just talking money here. We are talking credibility." Since the building of a new stadium is viewed as a necessity, Glazer could "wait for it to happen. Or take a firm step and lead the way" (Gary Shetlon, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 2/16).
