COULD ST. PAUL BE THE ONE TO BRING IN THE JETS?
Published November 16, 1995
St. Paul Mayor Norm Coleman met with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman in New York yestrday to "explore ways" to bring the Jets to St. Paul, according to today's Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Coleman said later Bettman would consider such a move, but still called the bid "a long shot." Coleman's staff has been working with officials from the Civic Center to determine the revenue available to Jets Owner Richard Burke and how to finance improvements. The Civic Center has no luxury suites, "a prime revenue source," and a move "could hinge" on the issue of public subsidies -- a demand that "sunk efforts" with the Target Center. Suites and ad revenue "would be expected to figure prominently in any St. Paul incentive package," and Coleman said the city should know within two to three weeks whether a deal is possible (Lonetree & Weiner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 11/16).
