TAGLIABUE STAYS BEHIND IDEA OF LEAGUE-OWNED STADIUMS
Published June 29, 1995
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's year-old suggestion the league build and operate its own facilities "seems to be gaining momentum." Patriots Owner Robert Kraft: "Maybe we should look at the league developing and owning the stadium in these dual markets. If you have two teams, you can justify the numbers. Maybe that's what the wave of the future should be. The stadium issue is the biggest one facing the NFL. What will create major inequity is the stadium situation" (Larry Weisman, USA TODAY, 6/29).
