Lori Lightfoot Absolutely Rips Bears After Arlington Announcement.

"The Chicago Bears made some huge headlines yesterday when they made the announcement of their bid for the Arlington Racecourse site. Bears' ownership is looking to possibly start a build on a new stadium which would take them 28 miles out of the city. That does not make Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot happy at all. In a statement, Lightfoot ripped the Bears and said they should be more focused on winning. "The Bears are locked into a lease at Soldier Field until 2033. In addition, this announcement from the Bears comes in the midst of negotiations for improvements at Soldier Field," Lightfoot said in her statement.
"As a season-ticket holder and longtime Bears fan, I am committed to keeping the 'Chicago' name in our football team. And, like most Bears fans, we want the organization to focus on putting a winning team on the field, beating the Packers finally, and being relevant past October. Everything else is noise."Ouch!Check it out below:
