Don't sign a New contract with rooftops if you planned on a money grab. Ricketts wants his thumb print so bad on Wrigley. Just a terrible owner.
Based on what?
And ricketts didn't sign the contract (if it really is one, which is a topic of debate) the tribune company did.
Also they're planning on pushing the wall out and making sheffield a 1 way street so it won't be blocking the rooftops view and if it does you're talking about one roof top and minimal obstruction...the other sign will be see through like the toyota sign that currenlty occupies the spot for the new video board.
Cubs need this badly. And i'd love to know why ricketts is a bad owner?
As for the 'threat to move' he didn't use it at all publically when he was negotiating with emanuel and tunney, even when rosemont (i think it was rosemont) offered to build them a stadium. I don't see a problem with saying the cubs need to consider it. Wrigleyville owners want the increased property values and traffic that come with teh cubs but they want it on their terms. I'm fine with a hollow threat to push things along.
