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).
