CFL "SOLICITS" DEAL FOR US TELEVISION
Published September 19, 1994
At a league meeting in Toronto, CFL commissioner Larry Smith told owners that he had "solicited TV contract offers from two US carriers." Although they were not identified, Baltimore owner Jim Speros confirmed that neither was CBS. Any TV deal would mean adding up to four more franchises in the U.S. Among the cities mentioned for possible expansion: Memphis, St. Louis, Oakland, Orlando, San Antonio, New York and Los Angeles. New York and L.A. are seen as the big draw for the TV executives (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 9/18).
