CFL NOW FACES ROUGH-RIDING ON ITS SOUTHERN STRATEGY
Published March 28, 1995
CFL Commissioner Larry Smith was working last night to "save" the Jackson, MS franchise-bid, and "with it, the league's plan for a north-south realignment." Reportedly, the Jackson group's bid to get the Las Vegas Posse "was in serious trouble" due to internal disagreements among the investors (Kent Gilchrist, Vancouver PROVINCE, 3/28). The three businessman apparently "cannot agree on how the percentages of the franchise should be divided" (Marty York, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 3/28). The CFL recently concluded a deal saving the Ottawa Rough Riders from extinction.
