Some think the Bears are purchasing land on which a new stadium could be built in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights for leverage purposes. Other think the Bears are serious about moving.

A new survey suggests that someone is serious about the Bears moving.

Via the Arlington Heights Daily Herald, an unknown party is conducting a telephone survey gauging interest in the potential relocation. A Daily Herald received the call on Friday; it consisted of four questions. The questions seek information about age range, gender, favorite NFL team, and whether the recipient of the call would support the Bears moving to Arlington Park in Arlington Heights.

Per the report, the call starts with an explanation that the Bears have made a bid to buy Arlington Park. The call ends with, “Go Bears!”

Churchill Downs in Kentucky owns Arlington Park. Per the report, Churchill Downs claims that it has received “strong proposals from numerous parties” in advance of Tuesday’s deadline for submitting them.

With the economics of NFL stadium operation changing dramatically — especially with the proliferation of legalized gambling — it makes more sense than ever to have a stadium built and configured to maximize attendance and the ability of attendees to place a broad selection of in-game wagers, all game long.

  1. Since it is very doubtful the Bears would let their current PSL holders transfer their PSLs to the new stadium for free, Bears season ticket holders would be crazy to support moving from Soldier Field. Their PSLs would become instantly worthless. I’m sure most Bears season ticket holders would support fixing up and improving Soldier Field and adding some seats and keeping the Bears right where they are.

  2. If the Mckaskey’s would buy this property, the whole idea of moving into the new era would make sense. They could have concerts and With 326 acres you could do what ever you wanted. Plus, what would it do for the total value of the franchise just by owning the posible stadium site. Billions and Billions………I say buy it. The value will never go down.

  3. Doesn’t matter where the da bears play because the bears still suck the bears still suck!

  4. The Packers are a bunch of whining creeps. Packers and Rodgers suck. Cheese headed jerks
