D-DAY ON 49ERS STADIUM? IS DEBARTOLO A COOPERATING WITNESS?
Published September 18, 1998
S.F. Mayor Willie Brown will meet with 49ers interim President Larry Thrailkill and NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue today about the status of the team's stadium complex. Brown, on the team's new leadership: "I'd be more comfortable if there was somebody whom I'm familiar with. Eddie DeBartolo would never not return my call. He would never hold a press conference before talking to me" (S.F. EXAMINER, 9/17). Meanwhile, defense attorneys in LA "speculated" that 49ers co-Owner Eddie DeBartolo "may have become a cooperating witness" in their case against former LA Gov. Edwin Edwards and son Stephen. Edwin Edwards said, "I've been hearing since yesterday rumors that DeBartolo would not be indicted" (DETROIT NEWS, 9/18).
