SAGA CONTINUES FOR COOKE AS HE SEARCHES FOR NEW STADIUM SITE
Published April 10, 1995
Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke is now facing "daunting and perhaps insurmountable problems" at possible stadium sites in Prince George's County, MD, according to today's WASHINGTON POST. As with Cooke's past effort in Anne Arundel County, MD, anti- stadium fliers are circulating and civic associations are organizing, causing politicians to "feel the heat." Local environmentalist Robert Boone: "The problem is his arrogance of power, coming in and assuming that just because he can buy the property, he can do whatever he wants." Spokespersons for Cooke promise that he will "seek dialogue with residents and political leaders before announcing any new proposed stadium location" (Gillis & Montgomery, WASHINGTON POST, 4/10).
