CFL COMMISH CONFIRMS NEGOTIATIONS TO KEEP POSSE RIDING
Published April 12, 1995
CFL Commissioner Larry Smith told the CANADIAN PRESS yesterday that the owners of the suspended Las Vegas Posse and Orlando developer Norton Herrick were close to a deal, and that the team may yet play in Jackson, MS, in '95. Smith: "We're talking final documents: a matter of hours instead of days." Toronto Argonauts President Bob Nicholson says while the resurrection of the Posse will be good for the league's scheduling and marketing opportunities, there are problems. Nicholson: "How does the public and the media perceive us for suspending operations one week and then turning around and reopening them in the next. That aspect deeply concerns me" (Mike Ganter, TORONTO SUN, 4/12).
