TAGLIABUE CONCERNED ABOUT CLEVELAND-REDUX IN STEEL TOWN
Published March 19, 1996
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue is "worried the same thing may occur" with the Steelers that happened to the Browns in Cleveland if a new baseball-only stadium is built for the Pirates, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. In an interview with the GAZETTE's Ed Bouchette, Tagliabue noted "similarities" between the Pittsburgh's recent agreement with new Pirates Owner Kevin McClatchy to fund a new stadium within two years and the building of Jacobs Field and Gund Arena in Cleveland. Tagliabue called for Pittsburgh to build a multi- purpose stadium to house both teams, in the hopes that the city can "set an example for the country" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 3/17).
