ANIMOSITY RUNNING HIGH IN THE CFL - IS SHREVEPORT OUT?
Published November 8, 1994
Some CFL owners want the Shreveport Pirates to move out of LA and into a larger market in the U.S. One CFL owner said, "Let's get realistic about Shreveport. Shreveport is a bush- league city that no one has ever heard of or cares to visit, and we've discovered that in (the Pirates') first season of operation that they do nothing to enhance the CFL's image." There has been pressure on the Glieberman family to move their team into a larger market, but they "have no intention" of moving out of Shreveport. In Baltimore, the most successful CFL franchise, club officials are angered by the lack of help from the league office. Baltimore VP Tom Matte: "The league, and I've got to word this carefully, doesn't help. They don't do anything. ... If they want to make franchises a success, you have to have guidelines for game-day operations and everything. They do have some guidelines, but they're so general it's crap. Total crap" (Marty York, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 11/8).
