ROSS JR. AND GREEN CAN'T PUT THEIR STARS TOGETHER
Published June 19, 1995
Ross Perot Jr. has "ceased efforts" to buy a share in the Stars, team President Jim Lites said Friday. Lites said that a group led by Perot had been negotiating to purchase 50% of the club from current owner Norman Green, but decided "that a sports franchise is not the proper fit," writes Mike Heika in the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Lites: "Their decision was strategic and not economic. They decided it was simply something that did not fit into their plans at this time." Lites said the team is currently in negotiations with two other groups interested in buying part of the team (FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/17).
