CHICAGO CONSULTANT WANTS TO FACILITATE BEARS PROBLEMS
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).
