BENGALS GM CALLS FOR NEW STADIUM IN CINCINNATI

     Bengals' GM Mike Brown told the Cincinnati Business
Committee [CBC] that his team "would suffer financially without a
new stadium."  The CBC has been studying a renovation plan for
Riverfront Stadium, but Brown said that would "leave his team
with $5.5M less in annual revenue than the estimated average of
an NFL stadium during the years 2000-2011."  Brown said, "We do
not want to leave here.  We are going to work our hardest to make
it work here."  His remarks came a day after Cleveland Browns
owner Art Modell called on OH legislators to consider ways to
finance stadium improvements for the Browns, Bengals and the
Reds.  Brown said he was "intrigued" by Modell's idea of state
financing for both projects, but Richard Green reports it is
unlikely any plans will "immediately" come out of the statehouse
(Richard Green, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 10/18).
