CFL POSSE RIDING OFF FOR MILWAUKEE?
Published January 6, 1995
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).
