    As we all expected, Sox fans will just have to wait until Arthur and William Reinsdorf dies and a Rocky Reinsdorf takes over and gives the fans a fair effort ....loved the line about "no incentives to pack the park". There's a business I want - maximize profits by doing LESS...gotta love the capitalistic bastard

    I remember reading where Jerry told his son to sell after his death. 


    And how long have we been saying that there are no incentives to pack the park?

    Rauner wouldn't overturn something created by Big Jim Thompson! It doesn't matter what political party you are from (or not from). Everyone politician in Illinois has his hand out.

    You're very optimistic and see things thru rose colored sunglasses. Some Sox owner, JR or the next one, will most definitely be asking for a new park or they are leaving, WAYYYYYY before 2030.  That's almost a sure thing.

    Only a damned fool would leave this TV Market.
    Team is run as Reinsdorf's red headed step child.


    I got a great pissed off reaction from TEAM HISTORIAN Lindberg on FB.


    He told me the Stadium was built in the 1980s and opened in 1991 and it is OVER.  Told people to be SOX FANS!!!


    I am not 12 years old anymore.


    Lindberg kind of reminds me of Bush after 9/11.....GO SHOPPING!!


    Fact remains the Sox are still on the TAXPAYER DIME.  CORPORATE WELFARE FOE BILLIONAIRES.  A LEASE DEAL THAT IS AN INCENTIVE NOT TO COMPETE.


    One Fanboy pointed out how much tax $$$$ the Bears got too.  His point was that the Sox are somehow being singled out.  TOTAL FANBOYISH.


    Billionaire sports owners are in the pockets of taxpayers in a BROKE City and State.


    RIDICULOUS.

    THEY WON'T BE LEAVING FOR ANYWHERE UNLESS THEY HAVE ANOTHER SUCKER LINED UP.

    I WOULD LIKE TO THINK ONE WOULD BE HARD TO FIND.

    BOY, I'D REALLY LIKE TO THINK THAT
