WORD UP: ORLANDO NOT PULLING ANY PUNCHES WITH THE BUCS
Published December 13, 1995
Orange County Chair Linda Chapin on Tuesday told the County Commission there would be no new stadium for the Bucs and no "sweetheart deals" either, according to the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. Orlando Mayor Glenda Hood said on Monday she is more focused on seeking contributions to build a $150M performing arts center in Orlando rather than luring the Bucs. Chapin said she was open to renovating the Citrus Bowl, but added the Bucs would be expected to assume "a significant share," perhaps as much as 50%, of renovation costs (Jeff Testerman, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 12/13). Randy Johnson, Exec Dir of the Orlando Area Sports Commission: "The Bucs are hearing the word 'No' a lot. And that's disappointing" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 12/13).
