TOUGH TALK ALONG THE RIVERFRONT
Published December 2, 1994
Bengals Owner Mike Brown said his team "will not play in Riverfront Stadium after the 1999 season." Brown, who made his comments in an interview with Richard Green of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, said he wants Riverfront demolished and a $146M facility built on the same site. He said the team could play at a temporary site (Ohio State or UK) while a new stadium is built. Brown would not discuss the possibility of relocation: "Our objective through this entire affair is to keep the team in Cincinnati. I'm not going to be about threats." Brown, on discussions of a new stadium for the Reds and renovation of Riverfront for the Bengals: "I haven't seen a (remodeling) plan that does what we need and I am not convinced it is possible" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 12/1).
