Councilman: Give Bengals tickets to poor children

December 18, 2002

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A city lawmaker has a suggestion for grumpy Bengals fans: Give your tickets to poor children.

City Councilman Chris Monzel wants ticket-holders planning to skip Sunday's game against New Orleans to donate their tickets to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission.
If Cincinnati (1-13) loses, it will be the first time any Bengals team has lost all its home games in one season. It also would be the most losses by any Bengals team in a season.

``This Sunday's game may be a poor excuse for professional football, but for many of those kids it will be a Super Bowl,'' Monzel said.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said Wednesday the team prefers that ``tickets be used by someone who would enjoy the game, regardless of how that might come about.''

The team, founded in 1968, hasn't been to the playoffs since 1990. The Bengals close the season Dec. 29 at Buffalo.

Earlier this season, government officials wanted to know if the Bengals' failure to field a competitive team violates the lease at Paul Brown Stadium.

The taxpayer-financed, county-owned facility opened in September 2000
