CFL ISSUES "FINAL" DEADLINE FOR RIDERS/POSSE
Published March 2, 1995
The CFL extended their Tuesday deadline yesterday issuing another "final" deadline "in an attempt to sell the floundering" Rough Riders and Posse. However, despite "the ultimatum," the franchises "are still alive" (CP/Vancouver PROVINCE, 3/2). The Rough Riders are now being sought by Shreveport Pirates' GM Dean Albrecht after Elliot Maisel of Mobile, AL, withdrew his bid. Albrecht reportedly met with CFL Commissioner Larry Smith last week in what was described as an "excellent conversation." Negotiations on the Posse moving to Jackson, MS, have broken off and "as stipulated by the league, a proposal must be submitted by the end of the week" (Marty York, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 3/2).
