    Cubs: rosemont to offer 25 acres

    Cub fan, not Wrigley fan. What are your thoughts on the rosemont proposal?
    294 and Balmoral, rosemont IL - Google Maps


    Personally I think they should do it. The city will never let them do what they want. Attendance might suffer, but once they get their network they won't need 422k people in the stands. I am sure Rickets won't do it, but they should at least explore it.

    Sorry wrote this on the iPad and for some reason it doesn't get along with CF.

    The Cards will win, regardless of whether it's in Chicago or Rosemont.

    That was supposed to be 42k. Stupid iPad won't let me correct it.

    If they move out of Wrigley they'd actually have to have a quality product to attract the fans attendance (actually probably not we're talking about Cubs fans here..they are used to losing)

    I agree with the idea though, Turn Wrigley into a baseball monument, mecca of sorts?

    Well, they can lose there as good as anywhere, why not?

    Right next to O'Hare doesn't seem like a good place

    This. I don't think adding traffic near O'Hare because of a new stadium would go well.

    Just build the new Cubs stadium in beautiful downtown Shermer, Illinois and make everyone happy.

    Re: Cubs: rosemont to offer 25 acres

    I like the idea of a mega 422,000 seat stadium for the Cubs! That way, as a Cardinal fan, I might be able to get a seat to see a Cubs-Cards game!

    Re: Cubs: rosemont to offer 25 acres

    If I were the Cubs, I'd at least try to leverage this. No way they'll move, but maybe they can fake it for a little bit.

    Baseball stadium next to one of the busiest airports in the world? Genius!

    As a fan of baseball history, it makes me sad to think that the end might be in sight for Wrigley. All of the great, old ballparks are a distant memory, except Wrigley and Fenway. I know that everyone has to have the latest and greatest when it comes to stadiums these days, but there's just something about sitting in the stands of the same ballpark that some of the game's greats have played in.

    If the Cubs do move to a new park somewhere else, I hope the city does something to keep alive the memory of Wrigley. It's a shame what happened to Tiger Stadium in Detroit - not so much as a plaque to commemorate its existence or place in baseball history. Sad.

    Re: Cubs: rosemont to offer 25 acres

    As a Cubs fan:

    Completely bulldoze Wrigley.
    Sell old bricks, chairs, sod, etc to help raise money.
    Save the center field scoreboard and some IVY to replant.
    Build a new Wrigley in same spot but have it like Yankee Stadium. New amenities, old time feel.
    Play 2 years split between US Cell, Milwaukee, etc.
