FRESH OFF MEMPHIS ENTREE, CFL LOOKS TO HARTFORD
Published November 21, 1994
CFL Commissioner Larry Smith said he has talked with prospective owners in Hartford, CT, and "hopes the city will be part of the league's expansion plans." Sources indicate that two CT groups are interested in competiting for a team, but "their bids might be contingent on the building of a stadium in Hartford." Smith said a team in Hartford could start up as early as '96-97 if plans to build a stadium were initiated within the next year" (Greg Garber, HARTFORD COURANT, 11/19). Last week, Baltimore's CFL owner Jim Speros met with CT entrepreneur Bill Berkley about a Hartford team. Speros envisions a U.S. divison: Baltimore, Memphis, Oakland, San Antonio, Orlando, Birmingham, Hartford, and Shreveport (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 11/20).
