BEARS SAY THEY ARE "VERY SERIOUS" ABOUT INDIANA
Published October 26, 1995
Bears President Michael McCaskey said yesterday he is "very serious" about moving the team to Northwest IN, according to today's CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. In a speech to the Economic Development Council, McCaskey "laid out an economic argument for moving the Bears ... claiming stadium deals are more important than market size in the modern-day NFL." McCaskey did make it clear that he is a "long way from a final decision" (Fran Spielman, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/26). Aides to Mayor Richard Daley "privately characterized" the speech as a "negotiating ploy," but McCaskey said in his remarks that his concerns were "strictly business ones" (John Kass, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/26).
