    Man the state is playing hardball. This deserves it's own thread.

    Politics as usual in Illinois. How about, any team that breaks a lease has to pay the buyout. That's why buyouts exist! I swear, they never fail to give you a reason to hate the city and state government.

    I can't possibly see how this legislation is enforceable. The contract has a buyout for a reason.

    It surely couldn't apply to an existing contract.

    I don't see how that's even remotely lawful, even in a corrupt state like Illinois.

    This state lol. This is bat **** crazy. I thought i was on the bears side to begin with. The city is doing itself no favors. And especially so in trying to keep the bears in the city either.
