BENGALS GM CALLS FOR NEW STADIUM IN CINCINNATI
Published October 19, 1994
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).
