Representatives Roger Greenberg and Jeff Hunt
cast the owners' group as a new breed
that has too much of a stake in
the city to take it down the drain.
They say the difference between them and past owners
is that they are offering not just football, but
an entertainment experience that would be 2nd
to none and, critically, be self-sustaining.
At the heart of the plan, a modernized Frank Clair Stadium
will anchor a Lansdowne Park that will be transformed
into a major entertainment and retail complex complete with
hotel, aquarium, amphitheatre, sports fields and pond.
