BIRDS OF A FEATHER? TIGERS AND LIONS EXPLORE JOINT STADIUM
Published July 25, 1995
The Tigers and Lions have "renewed" talks for a joint joint stadium as their individual efforts have "faltered" in recent weeks, according to CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS. Silverdome Exec Dir Eric Walker said talks have stalled between the Lions and the city of Pontiac as the Lions are looking to take over management of the Silverdome. The Tigers no longer have the hope of using casino revenue to help finance a downtown stadium as Gov. John Engler prohibited an expansion of gambling into Detroit. The "common necessity" for additional revenue has brought the teams back together after some preliminary "get-acquainted" meetings in March (CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 7/17 issue).
