BENGALS NOT SATISFIED WITH TREATMENT FROM CITY
Published February 15, 1995
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).
