CINCINNATI OFFICIALS OPTIMISTIC ABOUT BENGALS DEAL
Published January 30, 1998
Cincinnati and Hamilton County leaders "are poised to vote today on a deal to clear the way for construction" of the Bengals' $400.3M stadium complex, according to May, Goldberg & Hobson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. Bengals' Dir of Stadium Development Troy Blackburn "stopped just short of saying a tentative deal had been struck" after yesterday's session among city, county and team negotiators. But Hamilton County Administrator David Krings said late last night that the staffs "were still working and will attempt to finalize a deal this morning" (ENQUIRER, 1/30). In Cincinnati, Paul Daugherty writes that Bengals Owner Mike Brown "is not Art Modell," but that his stadium stance "is still a shakedown. ... Just not at gunpoint." Daugherty: "It's the attitude. It's the arrogance of the NFL and other sports leagues. They are bullying, arm-twisting, hostage- taking, heartbreaking thugs" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/30).
