NFL COMMITTEE TO MEET WITH HOLLYWOOD PARK OFFICIALS TODAY
Published June 1, 1995
A "hand-picked" committee along with NFL President Neil Austrian will meet today with Hollywood Park officials in Denver to discuss plans for a new 67,500 seat stadium adjacent to the L.A. racetrack, according to Gordon Forbes in this morning's USA TODAY. Raiders Owner Al Davis has been invited to the meeting. Austrian told Forbes that "the NFL favors an established NFC team as a co-tenant with the Raiders" at a Hollywood Park stadium. Forbes writes that Austrian "is convinced that Davis could co- exist with a second team despite his history as a maverick owner." Forbes reports that Denver Owner Pat Bowlen, who is on the NFL's committee, "said Davis told the owners to build the stadium 'and then he will determine what he thinks is best for the Raiders.'" Bowlen told Forbes that he agrees with Davis, and that "the league has to grab this opportunity to get a stadium built in the L.A. market." Forbes: "Anybody trying to predict Davis' next move is only kidding himself. Davis will play hardball with the NFL and each of the cities [L.A., Baltimore, Oakland]" involved (USA TODAY, 6/1).
