Aldermen OK more night games at Wrigley Field

A panel of Chicago aldermen at City Hall voted in favor of allowing the Chicago Cubs to hold up to 46 night games each season.

The full city council could vote on the proposal Wednesday; but, the Cubs aren’t entirely pleased about the plan.

For example, if the team schedules more than four non-baseball events like concerts or college football games in a year, then they would count against the total number of night games in the following season.

Night games are a key part in the discussions between the Cubs and city leaders to renovate Wrigley Field.

    The Cubs have built tremendous mistrust within the community based on their previous statements. CubbieFlipFlip.Blogspot.com have a pretty good rundown of the basics, although I am sure they could add much more. It's would be comical to read their previous comments if the consequences of their ever changing opinions were not so important.
