BENGALS STADIUM STILL IN JEOPARDY AFTER NO LAND DEAL
Published January 23, 1998
Talks between Cincinnati and Hamilton County over its riverfront development "went into a tailspin" Thursday, "calling into question again whether the Bengals' $400.3 million stadium complex will be built," according to May & Wilkinson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. Cincinnati City Manager John Shirey "gave city council members what appeared to be a city-county deal Thursday morning." But county leaders then said they "never agreed to the document." Bengals President Mike Brown has said if the city and county don't reach a deal by Saturday, January 31, he will walk away from the stadium deal (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/23).
