Alternatives For The Penguins

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Conceding that Pittsburgh is in danger of losing the Penguins, Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato said yesterday he and Pittsburgh Mayor-elect Bob O'Connor are trying to "find a way" to fund a replacement for the Mellon Arena and secure the team's future. Mr. Onorato said he and Mr. O'Connor are considering a number of financing options, including private investment, state capital funding, naming rights sales and slot machine revenues.
continued It was also nice to hear both Mike Emrick and John Davidson talk about this situation on the OLN broadcast last night. They both stated the politicians had a gentleman's agreement with the Penguins to build a new arena in 2003 but have not followed through on it.
