BENGALS' BROWN GIVES CINCY JANUARY 31 STADIUM DEADLINE

          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).
