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).
