Opening day and still no Wrigley renovation agreement

On the Chicago Cubs’ opening day, the ball club’s owners hope to reach an agreement to renovate Wrigley Field. Wrigley renovations may include ballpark-sized parking garage

Mayor Rahm Emanuel personally joined weekend negotiations between the city and the Ricketts family; but absent from the talks was anyone representing the Wrigley rooftop club owners; they’re getting their updates from Alderman Tom Tunney.

An agreement is likely to include additional compensation for the rooftops if new screens and signs in the outfield obstruct their view.

    I am sorry to say that after 47 years I am officially done with the Cubs. They will never see another dime of my money. Not only do they suck with no end in site, but I cannot stand the idea of traveling into that unsafe sh*thole of a city, paying ridiculous prices for parking, food and tickets, and hope that I don't have to use the restroom because of the overflowing urine on the floors. Wrigley is a dump whose time is past. Out with the old and in with the new. And screw the rooftop owners too. They got a free ride long enough. Move to Rosement, build a new facility, and give the Cubs a chance to win. Chicago is run by idiots and is infested with crime. Why would anyone want to go there anymore?
