MIKE BROWN SAYS BENGALS ARE FREE AGENT -- FREE TO LEAVE?
Published March 13, 1995
Bengals President Mike Brown said yesterday the city has "breached its 1993 agreement" and given the club the right to terminate its stadium lease at the end of the year. Brown has said the city failed to complete a $1.2M payment by a February 28 deadline. Brown said the team had "carefully worded the agreement (with the city) that we needed the money for accounting and tax purposes. (The city) just said details, details. ... The stadium problems are very real and we're falling farther and farther behind." Hamilton County Commissioner Guy Guckenberger, Co-Chair of the Regional Stadium Task Force, said the Task Force "has to keep on moving and try to keep the Bengals and Reds happy" (Geoff Hobson, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 3/13). Brown was asked if he would consider moving the team to Baltimore: "We're aware there are alternatives. Whether Baltimore would be one I don't know. Maybe it would." Orioles Owner Peter Angelos, who failed in his quest for the Bucs, said he would "be interested in talking to him (Brown) whenever he is prepared to do so" (Vito Stellino, Baltimore SUN, 3/13).
