FLORIDA COUNTIES SQUARE OFF IN BATTLE FOR THE BUCS
Published February 16, 1996
Hillsborough County, FL, officials have told neighboring Osceola County to "back off" in their attempt to woo the Bucs, or else face a $500M lawsuit. The threat follows Osceola's offer Wednesday of a $150M new stadium for the team. Hillsborough County Commission Chair Jim Norman: "The offer constitutes tampering and tortious interference [with Tampa's contract with the team]. If they want the Bucs, they might as well tack on another $500M to the cost." The Bucs' lease at Tampa Stadium runs until June 20, 2000 (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 2/16).
