ALL IN FAVOR: In L.A., Rich Connell reports in a “political twist few officials appear to have anticipated,” AEG’s proposed downtown NFL stadium “could require an approval from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, not just officials at City Hall.” A review of records “spanning nearly half a century of financial and development issues involving the Los Angeles Convention Center, where the stadium would be built, shows that the county board has had to consider and vote on a range of city proposals involving the complex.” If the Convention Center accord requires changing, L.A. Special Assistant City Attorney Jane Usher said "both the city and the county must sign off." City Hall talks on a final stadium proposal "could take months" (L.A. TIMES, 4/11).
MUM'S THE WORD: Twins Owner Jim Pohlad said that he is “excited about an idea he has to further enhance” Target Field next year, but he “wants to keep it a secret and hasn't even revealed it to team management yet.” He said that he “first wants to make sure it would be approved.” Pohlad: "Last year was (generation) G1, this year is G2 and next year will be G3" (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 4/10).
