MAVS AND STARS MAY BE CLOSE TO A DALLAS ARENA DEAL
Published October 1, 1997
Top Dallas officials met Tuesday with Stars and Mavericks officials, "suggesting to some that the parties may be close to striking an arena deal," according to Todd Gillman of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Dallas City Council members said the city "seems to be emerging victorious after days of meetings" and Stars Owner Tom Hicks "reinforced that belief." Hicks: "We're closer than we've ever been before. I think if things are going to come together, they're going to come together in the next few days." Mavs Owner Ross Perot Jr. met with Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, and a "high- level Cowboys official" said Perot wanted to discuss a possible joint arena-football stadium with Jones. Stars and Mavs execs "called the idea unlikely" (MORNING NEWS, 10/1).
