DOME COULD DELAY NEW BROWNS
Published February 15, 1996
Cleveland Mayor Michael White "intensified" his quest for a domed stadium yesterday, saying he would consider delaying the arrival of the new "Browns" until as late as 2001 to "accommodate construction." White: "If it took a few extra months to get this done, [a dome] is far more important to this community in the long run than whether the Browns are going to be here." White revealed the city's deal with the NFL allows Cleveland to "push back" the arrival of the "new Browns" as late as 2001, but that a delay is unlikely unless he locates the extra money needed for a dome. The city has agreed to notify the NFL by March 24 if it plans to build a dome instead of a 72,000-seat open stadium (Bart Hubbuch, Akron BEACON JOURNAL, 2/15).
