USC Dissenter

Who could overlook state assemblyman Paul Krekorian’s comments about USC and the Coliseum this week. Well, we did actually. But here they are.
“Im a lifelong USC fan, a USC graduate, and a 20-year USC football season ticket holder. No one loves the Trojans more than I do,” said Krekorian of Burbank. “USC is a terrific tenant, and I hope that future generations of Trojan players will always run through that Coliseum tunnel on game day. But my first obligation is to the citizens of California, and I will fight any USC lease that does not fully protect the publics interests.
“Im deeply troubled to hear that USC is seeking a long term master lease over the stadium that would be tantamount to ownership and would give USC unfettered control. The Coliseum is owned by the public and it must always remain under the publics control.
“The State of California cannot allow the Coliseum to be held hostage by USC.”
