BENGALS PRESIDENT MIKE BROWN ENCOURAGED BY LATEST TALKS
Published June 15, 1995
Bengals President Mike Brown was reportedly "encouraged" after Cincinnati-area business leaders and politicians met with OH Gov. George Voinovich on Tuesday. The state of OH reportedly has pledged a "significant influx of money" to build separate football and baseball stadiums in Cincinnati. Brown: "It's been a long, long time getting to this point. I feel tremendous progress has been made" (Gordon Forbes, USA TODAY, 6/15). In Baltimore, however, Jon Morgan writes that a Cincinnati city councilman declared the Bengals situation "critical" and predicted that the team could become the Baltimore Bengals "within days." Brown visited Baltimore last week and is reportedly "serious about moving [the team] to Baltimore, and wouldn't have come if he weren't" (Baltimore SUN, 6/15).
