RAMS MOVE II: WEST COAST REAX -- WHO'S COMING TO TOWN?
Published April 14, 1995
"Several teams could seek relocation to Orange County now, though the league has resolved to control such a move," according to the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER's Michele Himmelberg. Any move to the area will involve a league decision as to whether the team is "healthy enough to thrive" in L.A. NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue says after a league approval, a team may "win the right to move" if it pays an "appropriate franchise enhancement fee," and "meets other terms." Tagliabue says "logical candidates" would be "teams with stadium problems or low revenues." Himmelberg notes Cincinnati, Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Houston fit that description (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 4/14). MIGHTY BUCKS? Tagliabue says he has had "several discussions" with Disney Sports Enterprises officials "about the Orange County sports market and its demographics," but the commissioner denied discussions were about franchise ownership (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 4/14).
