LIONS GET COOL RECEPTION FROM STATE ON STADIUM FINANCING
Published January 4, 1996
The state is unlikely to offer funding help to the Lions in their search for a new stadium, according to David Barkholz of CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS. Doug Rothwell, CEO of the MI Jobs Commission, said MI Gov. John Engler "is disinclined" to get involved in talks on either a new stadium or Silverdome renovations. Rothwell, drawing a distinction between the Lions' request and the state's $55M infrastructure pledge for a new Tiger Stadium: "On the one hand, you have a downtown- redevelopment program for an antiquated ballpark. With the Lions, it's basically a lease dispute." The Lions estimate a new downtown facility would cost about $200M (CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 1/1 issue).
