BUCS DEAL WITH TAMPA INCHES TOWARD CONCLUSION
Published March 20, 1996
The deal between Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer and negotiators for Tampa and Hillsborough County remains incomplete, but in the words of Glazer's son, Bucs VP Joel Glazer, "Things are cool." According to this morning's TAMPA TRIBUNE, negotiators have reached "tentative agreement" on a new $168M stadium, with lawyers for both sides working on the details. The Tampa Sports Authority has scheduled a meeting for Monday to consider and vote on the deal, although that could be postponed if there is no agreement by Friday (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/20). Two major "hang-ups" are facility control and advertising rights (Charean Williams, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 3/20).
