JOINT DEAL MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THE PANTHERS IN FLA
The only thing "likely" to keep a the NHL in South FL is a
deal between its two richest men: Wayne Huizenga and Micky
Arison, according to the MIAMI HERALD. Panthers Owner Huizenga
and Heat Owner Arison both want out of the Miami Arena and both
want taxpayers to pay for a new arena. Metro Commissioner
Maurice Ferre: "If Huizenga and Arison came together and told us
they wanted a modern stadium, we would have to act. If they
don't come together, then there is really nothing to talk about"
(MIAMI HERALD, 7/20).
