    Re: 10 suggestions for new cubs owner

    Does it start off with "Move to Mexico City, and let an expansion franchise have the name"?

    Re: 10 suggestions for new cubs owner

    Actually the Cubs just were sold for nearly a billion dollars, they sell out most every game and they have one of the largest fan bases in the country despite the fact they haven't won a World Series in a long time. I don't think I'd get in a rush to change too many things. Something is obviously working...

    Decent list. I totally agree with the jumbotron idea.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    For some reason, this was funny?


    As for the list, I'd sit down with Lou. That's about the only one on there that I'd look at doing.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I thought so. It's called being facetious, as if any Cubs owner would give up that immensely lucrative market that is the Windy City. Or Cubs fans their team. You guys didn't really think I was serious, did you?

    Besides, for some reason, Browns fans thought such an idea would work. The L.A. Rams were the other end of the spectrum. And such a move would probably serve to dispel any lingering "curse" that some poor Cubs fans torture themselves with. A fresh, brand spanking new team. So I thought it might be funny to toss out there.


    Didn't expect to be called a ******* for it.

    Edit: And that includes an "I'm sorry", because evidently I've been a little off stride in my communication lately.

    Re: 10 suggestions for new cubs owner

    Paul Sullivan is a complete do#$che8ag that has no business writing for a major paper. He lets his personal feelings overtake his common sense.He is a short ugly troll that has no business trying to persuade common fans what to think. He has ZERO credibilty to fans that have a clue. He doesnt deserve the good job that he has.

    I hate him.

    I haven't followed in the last couple weeks, but Bradley has actually been playing pretty good since the All Star Break. Horrible first half, but during the second half he played well.

    Soriano has had a bad year. Not sure what's up with him(I always think their some back ground things like women or kid that are getting into a guys head when you see long slumps like this.)

    I think the whole team just needs to get a Mark Grace slump buster. True Cubs fans know what I am talking about...


    Go Cubs Go!
