Illinois to Get 2nd NFL Team? The Chicago Jaguars???
With all the talk about the Chicago Bears moving to Arlington Heights, Illinois with a brand new "state of the art" stadium...now comes this DieHard
The Chicago Sun Times and other media outlets in Chicago, are pointing at a 2nd franchise coming to Chicago.
Mayor Lightfoot is trying to sell the Chicago Bears on NOT moving to Arlington Heights, by stating that a dome would be put over Soldier Field...Yikes. The originality and historic value already took a solid hit with the Soldier Field "expansion." So with the space ship landing on the Chicago Bears home stadium, now you want to put a roof on it? This reminds me a great painting, that a four year old stares are for a while and then grabs his/her crayons to add to it. Mom and dad will love what I did to there painting on the wall! Yuck.
So now there is this...a second team in Chicago. The rumor is, the Jacksonville Jags would move their team to Chicago. There is an ownership tie to the city of Chicago for one. Also, have you ever watched a Jacksonville Jaguar home game on tv? There's like 120 people in the stands! Imagine your home team playing in a "not so nice" area of town, AND it's 99 degrees and sunny for every home game...Yep, I'd watch it from my couch too.
