FORD: CAGE ISN'T BIG ENOUGH FOR LIONS AND TIGERS
Published July 23, 1996
Though the Lions have no "clear-cut favorite" between remaining at the Silverdome or building a new facility in downtown Detroit, Owner William Clay Ford "all but ruled out" sharing a stadium with the Tigers, reports Mike O'Hara of the DETROIT NEWS. Saying he "wouldn't want to call it," Ford indicated that in "the next 10 days or two weeks," they will decide -- "or at least have a lot clearer view." Ford said sharing is "an alternative, but way on the back burner. I think the Tigers would agree" (DETROIT NEWS, 7/23).
