MR. JONES, SHOULD YOU TELL THE LANDLORD OF YOUR PLANS?
Published November 30, 1995
As Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones spoke of plans to expand Texas Stadium, he "neglected to ask the landlords," according to the FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. The Irving City Council owns Texas Stadium and leases it to Jones, and "most council members knew nothing" about the plans. Several said they have "serious concerns over how the expansion would be financed." Jones wants to add a retractable roof, 8,500 seats, and a grass surface, and he expects the $35M expansion to be financed, "in part, by a Irving bond issue." Councilman Joe Putnam: "He can pay for it out of his Pepsi contract" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/30).
