BENGALS WANT NEW SCOREBOARD: In Cincinnati, Sharon Coolidge notes the Bengals have "asked Hamilton County taxpayers to buy a new high-definition scoreboard for Paul Brown Stadium" at an estimated cost of $10M. The team's lease specifically says that if new technology -- including a scoreboard -- is "installed in 14 other NFL stadiums, Hamilton County taxpayers must buy the same thing for Paul Brown Stadium if the Bengals request it." The Bengals under their lease could "buy a scoreboard and bill the county for it" if the county refuses. Bengals VP Troy Blackburn "made the request in a Sept. 20 letter to Hamilton County Administrator Christian Sigman, asking that the scoreboard be ready for use" by the '14 NFL season (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 10/3).
