MONDAY IS D-DAY FOR THE JETS AND WINNIPEG
Published April 26, 1995
The Manitoba Entertainment Complex has five days to secure the ownership of the Jets and get approval to build a new arena. "However, construction of the arena and the creation of an energetic, refreshing new ownership group will not necessarily mean the future of the Jets is stable," writes Scott Taylor in this morning's WINNIPEG FREE PRESS. Taylor does note that if the MEC secures the Jets' future in Winnipeg, the franchise has the potential to make money. He cites revenue each team will receive from future expansion fees as well as the growth of TV revenue the league hopes to receive (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 4/26). CORRECTION: Yesterday's report on a possible Jets move to Minnesota mischaracterized the IHL's position. Contrary to a report by Scott Taylor in yesterday's WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, IHL spokesperson Tim Bryant denied that the IHL had any plans for the Minnesota Moose to move to Winnipeg should the Jets move to Minnesota. Bryant said that he had told the WINNIPEG FREE PRESS that he "had not heard that rumor." THE SPORTS BUISNESS DAILY regrets any confusion.
