BENGALS' BROWN GIVES CINCY JANUARY 31 STADIUM DEADLINE
Published January 5, 1998
Bengals Owner Mike Brown "has given Cincinnati one month to resolve what he calls a 'crisis' over a new football stadium or the team could leave the city," according to Rick Van Sant of the CINCINNATI POST. Brown said the stadium "won't be built if city of Cincinnati land for the site isn't transferred" to Hamilton County by January 31. Brown: "We are in a crisis. We want to make sure people understand we are at a critical point and what will happen if we let it slide by" (CINCINNATI POST, 12/30). The ENQUIRER's Geoff Hobson reported that with Cincinnati city officials "wondering where the Bengals can get a better stadium deal, the team has one answer: Cleveland." Bengals Dir of Stadium Development Troy Blackburn, on Cleveland: "It's a stronger market. But notwithstanding, we're trying to get the deal in our hometown" (ENQUIRER, 12/31).
