On Long Island, James Bernstein reports that N.Y. Sports Ventures Owners Howard Milstein and Steven Gluckstern "are stepping up a behind-the-scenes campaign to gain control of a multimillion-dollar contract to manage a new Nassau Coliseum," and are "said to be seeking to oust" PA- based SMG, which has the management contract through 2015. In addition, the Coliseum's GM Lance Elder has resigned, and a replacement search is underway (NEWSDAY, 5/19)....In San Antonio, Poling & Orsborn reported that expanding Freeman Coliseum to fit 20,000 people and 78 luxury suites would cost up to $109M, a figure Freeman board members "find staggering and that could prompt the county to instead build a new arena" for the Spurs (SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS, 5/16).
