State to own Wrigley?

Well..it's always been hinted at since the Cubs were put up for sale that Wrigley Field might be sold seperatly from the team.  THe Trib is reporting this morning that the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority is looking at buying the park.  I am not sure how I feel about this.  THis might make improvements to the park easier to get approval of, but with the team not being in control of their stadium anymore, how many more concerts, conventions, tractor pulls, etc will we see there.  

Besides, this probably will lead to a)selling of naming rights and b)much more advertising inside the park....all of which money would NOT go to the Cubs, but to the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority. Welcome to the future of Wrigley. Here is the link to the story.
