MONEY WOES FOR CFL'S ROUGH RIDERS CONTINUE

     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).
