PAT NOT BOWLEN-OVER BY L.A. BIDS: SAYS HOUSTON MAY FIT
Published March 12, 1999
Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen said that if neither the Ed Roski/Eli Broad group nor the Michael Ovitz expansion group can secure a L.A. stadium agreement soon, he will support putting an NFL expansion franchise in Houston and relocating an existing team to L.A., according to Curtis Eichelberger of BLOOMBERG NEWS. Bowlen: "I don't think Los Angeles is the no brainer people are making it out to be. I don't have any confidence that a stadium agreement is going to get done by either of the Los Angeles groups. ... If the stadium isn't ready, there's nothing wrong with giving Houston the expansion team, negotiating our own stadium agreement in Los Angeles and later re-locating a team there. ... Houston at some point in time will have a franchise" (BLOOMBERG, 3/11).
