REDSKINS OWNER COOKE SEEMS TO BE HAPPY WITH TURN OF EVENTS
Published October 26, 1995
Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke yesterday "reaped praise" on MD. Gov. Parris Glendening, who has offered $50M in state funds for road improvements, and to Prince George's County Council Chair Anne MacKinnon for her work in getting the stadium talks back on track. Cooke said the two "made no bones about [their support], and that relieved my worries considerably" (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/26). Business columnist Rudolph Pyatt writes, "The parties say the breakdown in stadium talks stem from sharp differences between Cooke and county officials over infrastructure costs. That notwithstanding, the biggest stumbling block appears to be a clash of egos" (WASHINGTON POST, 10/26). On local news, Cooke said Glendening told him "We're going to get this thing done. We want you badly over here. We're willing to do anything within reason to have the Redskins build their stadium over here and have the Redskins come here and enjoy a thirty-year term, minimum" (WJLA, 10/25).
