SACRAMENTO MAY BE SAYING "REMEMBER THE GOLD MINERS!"
Published February 9, 1995
The San Antonio City Council is expected to approve a deal today that will allow the CFL's Sacramento Gold Miners to relocate to the Alamodome. The only "glitch" that could kill the deal is the team's proposed share of concession revenues at the dome. Currently, the Spurs receive 60%, the city receives 40%. A new name is expected to be announced for the team (Frank Zicarelli, TORONTO SUN, 2/9). POSSE UPDATE: The investment group that controls the Las Vegas Posse is expected to meet today and vote on offers received from Jackson, MS and L.A. groups interested in moving the club. CFL Relocation Director Steve Arnold favors Jackson, saying the Mississippi city could be "a little Green Bay" (Gary Kingston, VANCOUVER SUN, 2/9).
