SEAHAWKS TO L.A., PART III: LEAGUE ISSUES MUTED RESPONSE
Published February 5, 1996
The NFL "is again standing on the sidelines, watching and waiting, as another team tries to pull up stakes and run to a better deal," writes Timothy Smith in the N.Y. TIMES. Once again, he adds, "the league's hands appear to be tied" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/3). The league issued a statement Friday: "The Seahawks advised our office last week of their view that the Kingdome was unusable and unsafe due to seismic risks. This office is not in a position to determine whether there is a seismic risk in the Kingdome, We are also not in a position to determine whether the Seahawks stadium lease has been broken. As a result of the litigation filed, both of these issues evidently will be determined by the courts. Until these matters are resolved, the team will remain in Seattle as far as the league is concerned" (John Clayton, Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 2/3).
