OILERS CRY FOUL IN LATEST FROM "AS THE ASTRODOME TURNS"
Published September 6, 1995
The Oilers yesterday asked a federal judge to "punish" Harris County officials for getting a court order last week barring the team from playing home games anywhere but the Astrodome, according to the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. The motion alleges that the county defied U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes' warning that they not file a lawsuit in state court without first discussing it with him. The two sides will meet today at a previously scheduled hearing with Judge Hughes (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/6). ONE TOO MANY? In Nashville, Jeff Legwold writes that local officials don't think an Oilers' move would pose a problem for attracting other pro teams. Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen: "Obviously selling two sets of luxury suites is harder than selling one set. But I would say I think we are well positioned to get a team for our area regardless of what the Oilers decide to do" (TENNESSEAN, 9/4).
