CHL IGUANAS VOWS TO FIGHT "TOOTH AND NAIL" AGAINST IHL
Published February 16, 1995
The CHL San Antonio Iguanas will compete "tooth and nail" against an IHL team if one moves to the city. The SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS reported Wednesday that Spurs officials are "exploring the idea" of luring an IHL team for the Alamodome. If the IHL grants a team to the Alamodome, CHL officials "suggested they will consider lowering ticket prices" for the coming season, but will not move out of the city. CHL Commissioner Monte Miron admitted the IHL is "a step above us," but "it's still minor league." Miron on the viability of an IHL franchise in San Antonio: "I know if it was my money, I wouldn't invest it in the IHL (in San Antonio). I don't think they will make it" in San Antonio. The Iguanas are averaging 5,258 fans in the San Antonio Coliseum (Jerry Briggs, SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS, 2/16).
