TAX PROPOSAL DIMS HOPES OF BALTIMORE ATTRACTING THE BENGALS

     Baltimore's hopes of luring the Bengals suffered a "stinging
and probably fatal" blow yesterday when Hamilton County officials
proposed a $100M tax increase to build a pair of new stadiums in
Cincinnati, according to the Baltimore SUN.  A Bengals attorney
yesterday notified Maryland Stadium Authority Chair John Moag
that the team thought it had a deal.  Moag: "We are actively
engaged in discussions with other NFL owners and are also
pursuing the potential for non-football related uses for the
Camden Yards property" (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 6/23).
