NAMING RIGHTS FOR BREWERS STADIUM? NO TALKS SCHEDULED
Published July 26, 1995
Contrary to reports out of Wisconsin yesterday, officials from the state and Miller Brewing said that they have "no talks scheduled" over the company's possible interest in buying naming rights to a new stadium. Miller spokesperson Mike Brophy said "any discussions on that issue may await the conclusion of negotiations between the club and public officials over financing a new stadium" (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/25). MAYOR CLAIMS BREWERS HAVE THE BALL: The two sides in Milwaukee's stadium talks "continued to differ" yesterday in their portrayal of negotiations. Milwaukee Mayor John Norquist: "We've worked hard to give the Brewers what they want, where they want it, and to find a way to pay for it that would make the Brewers a financially healthy Milwaukee team." In contrast, team officials have "balked" at the suggestion that a "nod" from them is all that's preventing a deal (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/25).
