Irwindale's Commitment Is $30,000 Per Family

September 12, 1987

Something smells awfully fishy about the Irwindale-Al Davis deal and it's more than the brackish water at the bottom of the gravel pits.

The "good faith" $10 million Irwindale gave to Davis computes to nearly $10,000 for each of Irwindale's 1,070 citizens, or $30,000 per family! The total Raider proposal calls for a $135 million commitment by Irwindale--an astounding $405,000 for each family in the city.

Heck, for just $15,000 per Irwindale family, I'd personally come to each house once a month, tell several sports jokes, read aloud the day's Jim Murray column, play a little flag football in the front yard, and teach fly casting in the gravel pit ponds,
