GLAZERS MEET WITH TSA; BABACAS TO BUILD "GOLDEN GREEK DOME"?
New Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer and his two sons met with two
members of the Tampa Stadium Authority (TSA) yesterday on plans
to replace or renovate Tampa Stadium. A committee is expected
to be announced today to study the stadium issue and make a
recommendation to the TSA. Meanwhile, Socrates Babacas, an
investor who failed in a bid to by the Bucs, says he wants to
build the team a 70,000-seat retractable domed stadium without
using taxpayer money. Babacas offered "Golden Greek Dome" as a
potential name for the facility. TSA Exec Dir Rick Nafe, noting
Babacas would get profits from the facility: "I don't think
Malcolm Glazer and family will go for it" (Walker & Henderson,
TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/27).
