CFL POSSE RIDING OFF FOR MILWAUKEE?

     The only stumbling block for a move to Milwaukee by  the CFL
Las Vegas Posse is a "suitable lease agreement" for use of
Milwaukee County Stadium.  Real estate developer Marvin Fishman
received word from Posse officials this week that "Milwaukee was
the market it would prefer moving to permanently."  Fishman has
been leading MIlwaukee's efforts to land a CFL team.  Posse Dir
of Player Personnel Steve Arnold:  "With an urban population of
1.4 million, enthusiastic football and corporate community, and a
beautiful stadium, Milwaukee represents the perfect venue for a
CFL team."  Arnold informed Fishman that the team must know by
Tuesday whether a deal can be worked out with the Brewers, who
control County Stadium.  Although the stadium's current layout is
unsuitable for a CFL field, it is the area's best alternative.
The team would have get the CFL or Brewers to agree to expand or
modify dimension requirements (Bob Wolfley, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL,
1/4).
