CHEN TABBED AS POTENTIAL INVESTOR FOR ROUGH RIDERS

     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).
