PANTHERS-HEAT ARENA MARRIAGE SHORT-LIVED
Published October 16, 1995
A partnership to build a new arena for the Panthers and Heat "seems all but dead," according to the MIAMI HERALD. Branch & Shipley report the Heat are prepared to move forward -- without the Panthers -- in building an arena on the waterfront at Bicentennial Park. Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga said last week that he "loves Miami, but will not own a team that plays in downtown Miami." Huizenga will reportedly honor the "late- October" deadline he set for Dade County to put together an "appealing" arena plan. Branch & Shipley report, "Barring a near-miraculous development, however, the hockey club will be put up for sale or begin making plans to move to another locale by month's end" (MIAMI HERALD, 10/13). In Boston, Kevin Paul Dupont notes to look for the Panthers-to-Nashville rumors to "heat up one more time" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/15).
