BEARS LOOKING TO HIBERNATE IN THE SUBURBS
Published April 11, 1995
Sources familiar with plans to move the Bears to a new stadium say that team President Michael McCaskey is looking at three suburban sites -- two in DuPage County and one in Cook County. Although specific plans "remain a secret," McCaskey believes time and politics "virtually exclude Chicago as an alternative" when his lease in Soldier Field expires after the '99 season. McCaskey reportedly hopes to build a new stadium through the use of permanent seat licenses (PSLs), but "consistently maintains" that he needs public assistance with land and infrastructure (Don Pierson, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/11).
