COULD STALLIONS BE RUNNING WILD ON ASTRODOME TURF?
Published January 5, 1996
CFL Stallions Owner Jim Speros and CFL Commissioner Larry Smith met with Astros Owner Drayton McLane yesterday to discuss the possibility of the team playing in the Astrodome. McLane "did not put a lease proposal on the table, but the two sides set parameters for future discussions," according to Carlton Thompson of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Speros reportedly "left the meeting more optimistic than ever" because McLane assured him that Astrodome USA is not bound to just one football team, meaning the Stallions can play there even if the Oilers don't move to Tennessee until '98 (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/5).
