MR. JONES, SHOULD YOU TELL THE LANDLORD OF YOUR PLANS?
As Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones spoke of plans to expand Texas
Stadium, he "neglected to ask the landlords," according to the
FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. The Irving City Council owns Texas
Stadium and leases it to Jones, and "most council members knew
nothing" about the plans. Several said they have "serious
concerns over how the expansion would be financed." Jones wants
to add a retractable roof, 8,500 seats, and a grass surface, and
he expects the $35M expansion to be financed, "in part, by a
Irving bond issue." Councilman Joe Putnam: "He can pay for it
out of his Pepsi contract" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/30).
