TAGLIABUE PRAISES HOUSTON PLAN, IS CITY ONE UP ON L.A.?
Published June 30, 1998
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue "lauded" Houston leaders Monday "for their unified effort to get another team," according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Williams writes that such unity "is needed to show that Houston wants an NFL team, and it apparently places this city ahead of [L.A.], its chief competitor" for a 32nd NFL franchise. Tagliabue: "The real measure of success of this meeting was that the progress and concrete plans we talked about today were beyond my imagination when I was here two years ago." Following the meeting, local business exec Bob McNair said that he hopes Houston "pushes the NFL for a fast decision," to prevent L.A. from catching up on planning for its stadium (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 6/30).
