MINORITY GROUP SEEKS CFL FRANCHISE ON LONG ISLAND
Published October 11, 1994
A Long Island businessman has submitted a $100,000 deposit to the CFL for an expansion team in 1995. Perry Carter, 39, said he wants to "replicate on Long Island" what the CFL has done in Baltimore. Carter's "minority-dominated investment group includes former NFL players Ottis Anderson, Rich Caster," and financial adviser Winston Thompson. Carter will meet next week with representatives from Hofstra University to discuss use of its stadium in Uniondale, NY. A team in Long Island would "enhance the league's bargaining position in negotiations for a U.S. TV contract." The league fee for an expansion team in '95 is $6M (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 10/8).
