City Councilman Joel Wachs called Wednesday for an investigation by the council of the circumstances involved in the collapse of a plan by the Spectacor partnership to renovate the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with private financing. "If this project is a bad one for private investors, then it certainly must be a bad one for the taxpayers," said Wachs, who has a resolution pending in the council opposing the use of any public money for Coliseum renovations.

Raiders owner Al Davis signed a contract Tuesday to keep his professional football team in Los Angeles after reaching agreement with the Coliseum's management firm on a privately financed renovation of the historic old stadium. The announcement followed tortured negotiations over terms for keeping the team from moving to Oakland. Davis said he made the "tough" and "emotional" decision only Monday night. "You have to make a choice," Davis told reporters.

William Robertson, the commission's president, said a proposed commission grant of $4 million to expedite planning will not be voted on until the Coliseum's private managers, the Spectacor Management Ltd.

While the private managers of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum have reason to herald their plans for the upcoming renovation, a Times review has found their boast of providing more seats between the goal posts to be misleading and exaggerated by thousands. Using their own definition of what constitutes seats "between the goal posts," Spectacor officials have said the privately financed renovation will add 18,000 of those seats for all Raider and USC football games.
