BROWARD GIVES PANTHERS, HEAT A FRIDAY DEADLINE
Published March 26, 1996
Broward County has given the Heat and Panthers a Friday deadline to commit to a new arena, threatening to halt financing efforts and site selection if they don't. Karen Rafinski reports in this morning's MIAMI HERALD that the county is asking the teams to sign a binding letter -- unlike one signed earlier this year -- and require that both teams sign leases by May 1. Broward officials are concerned the teams are giving Dade County leaders time to come up with an alternative plan and that the teams ultimately do not want to share a facility (MIAMI HERALD, 3/26).
