In Denver, a Metro Chamber poll says 73% of those surveyed endorse a new domed stadium for the Broncos, but the six-county metro football board, which will make the final decision, calls that option "not economically acceptable" (DENVER POST, 1/16)....In Cincinnati, the cost of the Bengals' stadium project dropped by nearly $10M when Hamilton County sold more than $71M in bonds at an interest rate lower than those that financed Riverfront Stadium in the '60s. Leaders had expected the bonds' interest rate to be about 5.5%, but the rate came in at 4.92% (POST, 1/14).
