  • BENGALS NOT SATISFIED WITH TREATMENT FROM CITY

         Bengals GM Mike Brown showed his frustration over stadium
    talks Tuesday saying that "negotiators had better start
    remembering they have two professional teams to satisfy."
    Brown's remarks stem from news that Reds CEO/ President Marge
    Schott "will not discuss her stadium needs" until after the
    baseball strike is over -- and that the Stadium Task Force is
    "willing to wait for her."  Brown:  "Our concern is that we don't
    get the help we need to make the Bengals viable in Cincinnati for
    the long range.  It's a concern we had a couple years ago when we
    started this process and I have to say we're more concerned now
    than we were then."  Task Force member Ralph Michael said that
    Schott "was too consumed" with the strike to "discuss her
    ballpark needs."  But Brown is "not convinced" that a stadium
    deal will happen.  Brown:  "We want to stay in Cincinnati and we
    want to get solutions to the problem, but I'm not going to kid
    myself that we will see any kind of solution" (Richard Green,
    CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/15).

  • NEW MARINERS STADIUM GETS ENDORSEMENT

         The Seattle Chamber of Commerce "endorsed the idea" of
    building a new stadium for the Mariners through a "combination of
    public and private funds."  The Chamber's board claims that this
    combination would be the "best, most realistic way to finance and
    develop a 45,000-seat stadium configured for baseball" (Seattle
    POST-INTELLIGENCER, 2/15).

  • UNCERTAINTY ABOUT CLEVELAND STADIUM CONTINUES

         The Cleveland City Council Monday "asserted its dominion"
    over three groups who are trying to determine how to pay for
    renovations for Cleveland Stadium.  The council warned the three
    groups -- the Browns, Mayor Michael White, and a "committee of
    corporate bigwigs" -- "that as long as the city owns the
    stadium," the council will be the only one who will decide "how
    and whether to renovate to keep the Browns."  While many council
    members support renovation, they said "they must view the project
    in a broader context" including the need to support schools,
    neighborhoods and other services (Stephen Koff, Cleveland PLAIN
    DEALER, 2/14).
