COLTS LEASE NEGOTIATIONS MOVE AHEAD AS COUNCIL GIVES BACKING
Published December 16, 1997
The Indianapolis City-County Council last night "firmly endorsed the negotiations to keep" the Colts in the city, according to Robert Bell of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS. Following the council's meeting, which was attended by 12 Colts players, Owner Jim Irsay said that he "hopes to have a letter of agreement" with the city by December 23. Bell calls the show of support "good for the Colts" because city officials had said that "without council backing, they would stop" negotiations with the team (STAR-NEWS, 12/16).
