RAVENS STATUE ON HOLD; AUTHORITY WANTS TEAM TO PAY
Published October 24, 1997
The MD Stadium Authority has put its plans to put a $253,000, four-ton raven on top of the Ravens new downtown football stadium "on hold," according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore SUN. MSA Chair John Moag had said that he "hoped" the Ravens could contribute "at least" $50,000 to the project, but yesterday Moag and MSA Exec Dir Bruce Hoffman said that they "hope the team or a corporate sponsor" can cover the entire cost of the project. Hoffman: "Our budget is tight. Until we get the funding, we can't go forward." Ravens VP/PR Kevin Byrne said that the team is looking into the costs and benefits of the statue (Baltimore SUN, 10/24).
