JETS DEADLINE FOR PURCHASE MAY 1?
Published March 20, 1995
If the Jets are not bought by Winnipeg investors by May 1, the team could be on the move, according to Kevin Paul Dupont of the BOSTON GLOBE. Jets Owner Barry Shenkarow said he will not extend the deadline from May 1, "perhaps because he believes he can pocket $75 million plus (US funds) by selling south of the border." Dupont reports that Ogden Corp. has a standing offer to move the team to the Target Center in Minneapolis, and if the team is sold that could mean the July 8 amateur draft, to be held in Winnipeg, would move -- possibly to L.A (BOSTON GLOBE, 3/19).
