BUCS SAID TO BE WILLING TO LISTEN TO CITRUS BOWL PLAN
Published January 24, 1996
Chuck Rohe, Chair of the Central Florida NFL Committee, said yesterday he has received indications the Bucs will listen to a plan to play in a renovated Citrus Bowl in Orlando, according to the TAMPA TRIBUNE. In previous dealings with Orlando, the Bucs said a new stadium was a must for them to move to Central FL, but Rohe said recent conversations with team officials indicate while they would prefer a new stadium, a "first-class" renovation is not out of the question. Rohe said he would meet with team owners, the Glazer family, either this week or at the Super Bowl this weekend. Meanwhile, FL Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay said Tuesday that keeping the Bucs in Tampa is a major economic concern for the state. MacKay supports giving local officials the option of imposing a restaurant or rental car tax to keep the team (Fay & Bartlett, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/24).
