Baltimore Stallions owner Jim Speros and limited partner Dr. Michael Gelfand met yesterday in Montreal with potential investors and a group of CFL officials including commissioner Larry Smith in an attempt to negotiate a deal to move the Grey Cup champions there in 1996, sources said.The Stallions either would play in Montreal in 1996 or they would disband, a source said. Speros and Gelfand are expected to return to Baltimore tomorrow.Montreal last had a CFL team in 1986.The Stallions' possible move to Montreal comes on the heels of reports in the Toronto Globe and Mail and the Saskatoon StarPhoenix that the idea of shutting down operations of the American CFL franchises for at least one year was discussed during a conference call of the league's board of governors Monday.

SHREVEPORT, La. -- The Baltimore Stallions pride themselves on strong special teams, and in Friday's 24-17 victory over the Shreveport Pirates, they were at their finest in that phase of the game.Start with the team's most valuable legs. Kicker Carlos Huerta, the Canadian Football League's leading scorer, made three of four field-goal attempts to help the Stallions take a 24-3 lead after three quarters.Punter Josh Miller, also the league's best, made his biggest impact in the first half. Miller, who averaged 57 yards on five punts in the half, ruined the Pirates' field position repeatedly.

SHREVEPORT, La. -- After three quarters at Independence Stadium last night, the Baltimore Stallions seemed to be in cruise control. They held a three-touchdown lead over the Shreveport Pirates, the home fans were silent, quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver was struggling to play with a finger injury on his throwing hand, and victory looked like a foregone conclusion.But the Pirates refused to concede. Sparked by Chris Wright's lost fumble on a punt return early in the fourth quarter, Shreveport scored touchdowns on its first two possessions of the fourth quarter, leaving the Stallions scrambling to escape with a 24-17 victory before 12,455.

SHREVEPORT, La. -- The Baltimore Stallions might have visited Independence Stadium for the final time last night.That's because the Shreveport Pirates, stung by a major drop in attendance and ticket revenue, are thinking about moving.Club president Lonie Glieberman, the son of owner Bernie Glieberman, told the Shreveport Times yesterday that the Pirates expect to lose $2.5 million this season, a year after the team suffered a $3.5 million loss in its first season. Before that, Glieberman lost $8 million over two seasons before selling the Ottawa Rough Riders.

Despite their wretched record, there is a limit to the indignities the Shreveport Pirates will abide this season.When Edmonton cornerback Charles Wright balked at a trade that would have sent him to Louisiana, Shreveport coach Forrest Gregg canceled the deal.This is noteworthy because Wright was the cornerback who played like toast in Matt Dunigan's record 713-yard passing epic earlier this season for Winnipeg. Wright allegedly was covering Alfred Jackson when the Winnipeg receiver rolled up 308 yards on seven catches.
