BENGALS STADIUM STILL IN JEOPARDY AFTER NO LAND DEAL
Talks between Cincinnati and Hamilton County over its
riverfront development "went into a tailspin" Thursday,
"calling into question again whether the Bengals' $400.3
million stadium complex will be built," according to May &
Wilkinson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. Cincinnati City
Manager John Shirey "gave city council members what appeared
to be a city-county deal Thursday morning." But county
leaders then said they "never agreed to the document."
Bengals President Mike Brown has said if the city and county
don't reach a deal by Saturday, January 31, he will walk
away from the stadium deal (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/23).
