BEARS SAY THEY ARE "VERY SERIOUS" ABOUT INDIANA

     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).
