REMEMBER THE ALAMODOME? SPURS TO WORK WITH CITY ON REVENUES
Published September 22, 1995
Spurs President Jack Diller said the team will continue to talk with the San Antonio City Council, despite the council's opposition to renegotiating terms of the Alamodome lease. Asked if he was disappointed with the council's position, Diller replied, "I never said we wanted to renegotiate. The city has asked us to sit down and find ways to see if the Spurs can remain economically viable." Diller said "everything is on the table" in an effort to "bolster the team's revenues." The Spurs reported Wednesday that without a playoff appearance this year, they could lose close to $3.3M. Diller suggested a new seating arrangement, but "sidestepped questions about whether the team was still interested" in a new arena (SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS, 9/22).
