REDSKINS STADIUM SAGA CONTINUES AS TALKS HIT ANOTHER SNAG
Published October 23, 1995
Negotiations for a new Redskins stadium in MD "came to a standstill" this weekend over a dispute between team and county officials over the division of the costs of public improvements around the proposed site. According to the WASHINGTON POST, the two sides are $15-20M apart, and tensions over that gap "were further inflamed" by reports the NFL, "in an unrelated move, is showing renewed interest" in putting a team in Baltimore. Sources said it is "unlikely" enough NFL owners would support a franchise in Baltimore, but Redskins officials are "nonetheless outraged" and have accused state officials of "reneging on their commitments" to pay the full cost of the site improvements. MD officials would spend $200M to get a team in Baltimore offering a team "low rent and most of the revenue generated by the building" (Pierre & Neal, WASHINGTON POST, 10/22).
