GLAZER TO ORLANDO: I WANT A NEW STADIUM
Published November 6, 1995
Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer has indicated he wants a new stadium should the team move to Orlando, not a "souped-up" Citrus Bowl, according to the ORLANDO SENTINEL. The Orlando Sports Commission has since contacted K.C. architectural firm, HOK Sports, to draw up proposals for both a renovated facility and a new stadium. Commission Dir Randy Johnson says they will have something back within 10 days. Johnson also notes, however, that renovating the Citrus Bowl could leave the Bucs without a place to play if they decided to move after this season (Dan Tracy, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/5). Lawrence Lebowitz reports Johnson has announced the Sports Commission has assembled a "team of local experts" to examine "several key angles" of moving the Bucs to Orlando. The group's first meeting is today (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/4). NOT GIVING UP: Weekend reports out of Tampa see the community rallying to save the Bucs (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 11/6).
