MEMPHIS: Despite a report in USA TODAY which had the Hamilton Tiger-Cats possibly moving to Memphis, David Williams advises Memphis football fans not to get too excited. CFL Chair John Tory: "The [USA TODAY] article is stating conclusions that haven't been reached yet and reported on deals that haven't been done." Tory did not rule out a move, but said Hamilton will get a chance to keep its team. If the Tiger-Cats move to Memphis, they might not be able to play in the Liberty Bowl because the William Dunavant-led group that pursued an NFL franchise has the lease rights to the Liberty Bowl through 2000. Steve Ehrhart, a Dunavant associate: "We're still trying to make a determination of what is the best type of football for Memphis." The Dunavant group has not ruled out the CFL but a "higher priority" is a new pro football league to compete with the NFL (Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 10/20). EDMONTON: The Eskimos are asking the city of Edmonton for a $1M annual subsidy from the city -- "or muscle into control of profits from Commonwealth Stadium." Under the current arrangement with the city, the Eskimos get Commonwealth Stadium rent free, as well as a share of ad revenue and any stadium concessions profits generated by football operations (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 10/20).
