The CFL Board of Governors were told by Hamilton Tiger-Cats Chair Roger Yachetti that he expects the team to meet league- imposed ticket and sponsorship goals. The team is 85% of the way toward reaching the 12,500 season ticket and C$1M corporate sponsorship goal (VANCOUVER SUN, 12/9).... CFL Commissioner Larry Smith said he wants to see the league realign into Canadian and U.S. divisions as early as '95, creating a Canada-U.S. title game (CP/Vancouver PROVINCE, 12/9)....An "angry" group of CFL governors are prepared to take the Ottawa Rough Riders away from owner Bruce Firestone if he "can't prove he has the money to finance the team." (Don Campbell, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 12/9)....The Las Vegas Posse is up for sale and rumors have the team going to Birmingham, Hartford, Orlando or Milwaukee, all cities named as potential expansion sites (Rick Matsumoto, TORONTO STAR, 12/9). The Posse could also move to L.A., or suspend operations for a year (Ken Murray, Baltimore SUN, 12/9)....
