BRONCOS' BOWLEN SAYS MILE HIGH IS BORDERING ON UNSAFE
Published July 31, 1995
Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen is profiled by Adam Schefter in Sunday's ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS. Among Bowlen's plans for the franchise is a new stadium. Bowlen: "Frankly, we've all got to wake up here because 10 years from now I can't be playing at Mile High Stadium. Not only can I not be playing there, I don't think the stadium is going to be safe to play there. I think it's going to be condemned by the city's own building inspectors." Bowlen "insists" he would never move the Broncos, not even if L.A. or Toronto gave him a "sweetheart deal." Bowlen: "If any city approached me, I'd turn them down flat. This organization will not move unless they condemn Mile High Stadium and we have no place to play." Stadium talks between Bowlen and the city have reportedly "stalled" and Bowlen says there are no "no plans for more talks and no signs any agreement can be reached." City officials disagree, however, saying that talks "are moving forward, but probably not as fast as both sides would like" (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 7/30).
