    Adjusted for inflation, that's about $14 million. Still pretty cheap.

    This story is far from over. Update at: http://www.wavenewspapers.com/news/45622512.html

    Interesting note: Stadium is not USC property; school just rents it via long-term lease.

    LA Coliseum for sale?

    Interesting headline on Yahoo News suggesting sale of the publicly-owned stadium (that hosted athletics for Olympic Games) because of California state financial shortfall.

    Does any T&FN forum participant know of a consortium that could buy that stadium and restore its track and field facilities for a future World Championships?
