TOUGH TALK ALONG THE RIVERFRONT

     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).
