PHILADELPHIA LAUDS THE ARRIVAL OF NEW SPORTS OWNERS
Published March 21, 1996
A sampling of reaction in Philadelphia on Comcast's purchase of the 76ers, Flyers, and the two arenas: An editorial in today's PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS: "There probably should be some concerns about the nation's teams controlled by fewer and fewer (and richer and more powerful) owners ... But what is is, and what was wasn't always so rosy as we recall" (PHILA. DAILY NEWS, 3/21). An INQURIER editorial bids a not-so-fond-farewell to 76ers Owner Harold Katz, and says, "It's nice to see Philadelphia sports catching the rising wave for once." Despite the risks that "corporations of media power always creates losers and risks for consumers ... this new show will be more intriguing than the tired acts that have bombed at the Spectrum of late" (PHILADELPHIA INQURIER, 3/21).
