|Tribune Co. Could Delay Sale Of
Cubs Because Of Wrigley Field Talks
STILL NEGOTIATING: ISFA Chair James Thompson yesterday confirmed that he is "still negotiating with the Cubs and still hopeful the state can find a way to buy and renovate Wrigley Field with 'no taxes of any kind' that is acceptable" to Tribune Co. Chair Sam Zell (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 5/14). Chicago Tribune reporter Fred Mitchell said of ISFA-Tribune Co. talks, "It sounds to me it needs to be tweaked a great deal to satisfy Sam Zell.” Chicago Tribune reporter David Haugh: “It would seem to be cleaner to sell the Cubs and Wrigley Field as one. ... The bigger issue that people are wondering about is the naming rights and then renovation” (“Chicago Tribune Live,” CSN, 5/13).
