CHICAGO MAYOR SUGGESTS BEARS SHARE COMISKEY
Published September 25, 1995
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley added a new twist to the Bears stadium negotiations Friday when he suggested that the Bears relocate to Comiskey Park. Daley claims it would be "cheaper" to add temporary football stands at Comiskey than spend "hundreds of millions of dollars" for a new football-only stadium. Bears VP of Ops Ted Phillips "rejected" the idea and said the team "has had no contact" with the mayor or City Hall on the Soldier Field renovation. Daley also suggested, however, that the Soldier Field renovation plan could include a "favorable" new lease for the team (John Kass, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/23).
