THE EAGLES wanted $15 million up front from Temple before they would allow the football team to play in the stadium.
Temple is a school that is just developing its football program in the modern era. It is a mainstay for the impoverished student with a large number of scholarships and a liberal student loan program. I would not have become a lawyer if it was not for Temple's reasonable cost 40 years ago.
Now the Eagles want to ransom Temple University to allow it to play football in the new stadium.
