LURIE TRIES TO KEEP PHILLY HONEST WITH "REGIONAL" CLAIM
Published July 23, 1996
Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie said fans "can feel very, very safe in knowing that this franchise will be in this area," but he indicated as a "regional franchise" the team could move outside the city and perhaps the state if a new stadium is not built. Phil Sheridan of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER writes that both the Eagles and Phillies want new homes, but only one stadium will likely be built -- and it "is generally considered more likely" it will be a new ballpark which would host 81 dates a year. Lurie "made it clear" a refurbished Vet is not an option and "seemed to be alluding to a scenario" where NJ, DE or a neighboring PA county could lure the Eagles (PHILA. INQUIRER, 7/23).
