Moag withdraws statue request

October 23, 1997|By Tom Waldron

The Maryland Stadium Authority withdrew a request yesterday that the state pay $253,000 for a 40-foot-tall raven that is to perch above the Ravens' new downtown football stadium.

The authority approved the contract with a Rhode Island firm last week but withdrew it before the state Board of Public Works considered it at its meeting yesterday.

John Moag, chairman of the stadium authority, said the Ravens are working to find a corporation to pay for the statue.

"The Ravens haven't lined up their sponsorship yet," Moag said. "We pulled it until they can do that."
