10 Questions with Jay Mariotti
4. Two Chicago NFL Teams
Posted On 05.17, 2013
RCS: Moving to a more local nexus of sports and politics, Mayor Richard Daley said that Chicago should have two football teams. Do you agree?
Mariotti: That's absurd. Very few markets are obsessed with a sports team the way Chicago is obsessed with the Bears. A second team would be viewed as an interloper. Just when I think the mayor understands sports, he comes up with something wacky like that. Must be something political involved. And where would they play? Please don't say Wrigley Field, which is intended for baseball. One hockey game is plenty.
