Brown ignores Griffey's slam




By Mark Curnutte
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        GEORGETOWN, Ky. — The Bengals and president Mike Brown had no comment Saturday about remarks made in the Enquirer by Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., who took a swipe at the football team.

        Frustrated by trades and rumors of more Reds teammates being dealt, Griffey said: “I don't want to be in a situation where it looks like we're the Bengals. I want to win.”

        After the team's annual intrasquad scrimmage, Bengals coach Dick LeBeau was asked about Griffey's remarks.

        “I really don't have a comment, but until we produce more wins, we're vulnerable to that kind of thing,” he said. “But hopefully we're in the process of turning this around.”
