BEARS MANEUVER FOR BETTER NEGOTIATING STANCE
Published October 16, 1995
Bears officials said yesterday that the City of Chicago and Mayor Richard Daley "would have to help resolve" where the team would play for two seasons if the city agreed that Soldier Field should be demolished and rebuilt on the same site, according to today's CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Mike Kiley reports Bears officials "remain skeptical" that the proposal, expected from Daley within the next two weeks, "will be as extensive as they want." And so they will continue to "maneuver in public for a better negotiating stance" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/16). The TRIBUNE also reports Daley is expected to give the Bears a cut of parking and concessions revenues (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/15). In the latest issue of CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS, Borden & Strahler write, "There's little rapport and even less understanding between Mayor Daley and Bears President Michael McCaskey -- a fact fueling suspicions that the two can't cut a deal on a new football stadium because they can't stand each other" (CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS, 10/16 issue).
