CFL NOTES: POSSE HITCHED UP AND HEADED TO SOUTH FLORIDA?
Published March 6, 1995
Bruce Frey, a Chicago real estate investor, is competing with Jackson, MS, to make Miami the new home of the Las Vegas Posse, according to the MIAMI HERALD. Frey, who has twice tried to buy the Dolphins, has met with officials from the city about playing in the Orange Bowl. Reports out of Las Vegas say current Posse owners are asking $2.5M for controlling interest (MIAMI HERALD, 3/4). According to AP, CFL sources say the team would be called the Manatees and a portion of profits would go toward protecting the endangered sea mammal (Baltimore SUN, 3/4). ....Lawyers representing Chicago restauranteur Horn Chen met with Rough Riders President Phil Kershaw this weekend to go over the financial state of the team. Chen would keep the team in Ottawa (Don Campbell, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/6)....CFL Commissioner Larry Smith blamed the NHL lockout on the disastrous finances of the Riders and their owner -- former Senators Owner Bruce Firestone (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/4).... Former CFL-player Mike Wadsworth, who takes over as Notre Dame A.D. on April 1, "feels the CFL is in its death throes." Wadsworth thinks it "would be better for three or four Canadian cities to join the NFL and let the rest of the league fold" (Rick Matsumoto, TORONTO STAR, 3/3).
