Published November 3, 1995
Representatives of the city of Minneapolis, the state of MN and the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission yesterday told Jets buyer Richard Burke they would not be able to provide public subsidies to bring the Jets to MN, according to the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. Burke: "I got involved in this with the hope we can get it done here. It doesn't appear that is going to be possible. So we'll start looking at alternatives. At the moment we haven't talked to anybody else." Minneapolis City Council President Jackie Cherryhomes: "We're working on some longterm solutions. The time frame the Mr. Burke and the NHL is working on doesn't fit in" (Jay Weiner, Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 11/3). OTHER NHL MOVES? Al Strachan notes in the FINANCIAL POST that the Oilers could be moving soon in an attempt to become more profitable. According to a "highly placed" source: "All things being equal, that team will not be in Edmonton next season" (FINANCIAL POST, 11/2).
