SBD/25/Facilities Venues


     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).
