BENGALS A "NICE FIT" FOR BALTIMORE?
Maryland Stadium Authority Chair John Moag says the Bengals
would be "a nice fit" for Baltimore, and that he hopes to speak
with Bengals President & GM Mike Brown soon. Brown, likewise,
said "he likes Baltimore." Brown: "(Baltimore) has a small
window of opportunity and I'm aware of it. This (stadium issue)
is coming into focus quickly. There are going to be
opportunities." Moag says he wants a commitment from a team by
this fall, before legislation for stadium funding can be "shut
off" in next year's legislative session (Geoff Hobson, CINCINNATI
ENQUIRER, 4/14). Meanwhile, in Cincinnati, columnist Paul
Daugherty writes, "Does the business community care enough to
save the Bengals? Does anyone? You wonder." Daugherty notes,
"When Mike Brown stops seeking local solutions to his stadium
problem, everyone will know. There will be no changing his mind"
(CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 4/14).
