Marc Ganis, president of the Chicago-based SportsCorp Ltd., said he wants help mediate stadium negotiations between the Bears and the city of Chicago, according to the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Ganis' firm specializes in large-scale sports negotiations and Fred Mitchell writes he has assumed a national identity as an "agent for teams," though Ganis says his firm also represents municipalities. SportsCorp oversaw the Rams' move to St. Louis and most recently worked with the Raiders. Ganis: "People think negotiating with Michael McCaskey is difficult. But they have never negotiated with Al Davis" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 1/19).
