CHEN TABBED AS POTENTIAL INVESTOR FOR ROUGH RIDERS
Published March 3, 1995
Chicago Restauranteur Horn Chen is expected to make an offer for the Ottawa Rough Riders, just days after AL-based businessman Elliot Maisel declined to buy the team because of its large debts, according to this morning's OTTAWA CITIZEN. The CFL is expected to drop a stipulation that was a part of the deal with Maisel that would keep the Riders in Ottawa for the next two years, but Chen is not expected to move the team right away. Meanwhile, Bruce Firestone, the team's current owner, said yesterday he faxed CFL Commissioner Larry Smith "details of a $2- million U.S. offer which involves moving the team to an undisclosed American city" (Don Campbell, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/3).
