Another side of the Cubs revenue stream opportunities

6

Normally I don't put a whole lot of faith in anything David Haugh writes outside the world of pigskin (especially when it involves the 6 ounce bisquit) but in this case he cites a few interesting tidbits of how things can shake out for the Cubs finance arm going forward. The oft-dirty phrase "public financing" is reframed based upon two other sports stadiums in the city & elsewhere. There are some very interesting numbers in comparison to other teams both here and the big apple. No matter how its spun, there's someway each team gets its hands on money footed by taxpayers. My personal interest is the number cited in the 4th to last paragraph. If that number is accurate and the Cubs could approach that without some restrictions one must wonder if they are really screwed on that front staying in the friendly confines. It will be very interesting to see how the next mayor influences decisions made on behalf of the Cubs. As the picture clearly illustrates there appears to be a need for a close connection between the city's top [political] dog and the face of the franchise, IMO. This is something that is in stark contrast to the present top dog who made it crystal clear the past generation or so he clearly favours the team 9 miles south.
