One of the Ottawa Rough Riders' three largest sponsors, Corel Corp., has denied a request by the team to buy the team or increase its investment. The refusal comes five months after Corel agreed to advance the team $220,000 for the remaining two years on a $320,000 sponsorship deal. Riders President Phil Kershaw said that Corel President Michael Cowpland feels he has done his thing, that he stepped up to the plate when we needed him. I do not think that he is a candidate at this time to purchase the team" (Don Campbell, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 1/10).
