Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson is ready to "go on the offensive" to keep the Lions in Pontiac and out of downtown Detroit, according to CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS. Patterson wants immediate action, as he notes Wayne County has "joined" Detroit's bid. He thinks the team will move unless Oakland County can come up with a package to help "cash-strapped" Pontiac renegotiate the team's lease (David Barkholz, CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 9/4-19 issue). CFL IN DETROIT? Entrepreneur Bernie Glieberman is paying close attention to the Tigers' efforts to get a new stadium, as he holds the CFL rights to Detroit and should the Tigers move, he would like to put a CFL franchise in Tiger Stadium (Jon Pepper, DETROIT NEWS, 9/10).
