:o: One of the topics on radio this morning was the scrubbies wanting to put ads on the wall behind home plate and defacing beautiful wrigley field! I think the first sponsor should be tampax, for obvious reasons.

Are there any other companies that may want to associate themselves with the north side nancies?

Signs pointing to end of era
Ads may hit bricks behind home plate

September 3, 2004

Wrigley Field's pristine brick wall behind home plate is a throwback--a reminder that the Cubs' home park is the last holdout of professional stadiums awash in logos and billboards.

But that could change next year.

If they can get approval from the city's Landmarks Commission--and that might be a big "if" these days--Cubs executives will install a rotating 10-by-3-foot advertising sign just to the right of home plate.

The move is a giant step for the Cubs. It is likely to draw complaints from nostalgia buffs who worship Wrigley's sun-splashed, ivy-covered outfield walls, as well as the familiar bricks behind home plate.

The brick wall "is one of the great icons of Wrigley Field," said John McDonough, the Cubs' vice president of marketing and broadcasting. "But for us, it is important to create a new revenue stream."


As with every team, it's about the money. Always has been always will be.

Remember when Cubbie fans used to put-down the Sox and Comiskey Park because of all 'the untarnished beauty of Wrigley with it's day baseball (we play baseball the way it suppose to be played, under the sun) and a field without any advertisements?' Now of course the Cubbies play night games and they want to play more and more night games and The Shrine has advertisements and the Cubune wants more.

Would Mayor Daley,A Sox fan,want to let the lovable losers do this without
slapping a "historic landmark" title on the Urinal Shrine????

Ddin't think so.Instead of telling the "Looooosahhhhhs" to "get a team",he (the mayor) should have said "get a life" or "get a clue" to their drunken fanbase.:angry: :angry: :angry:

Don't forget about the fact that Wrigley just installed some new scoreboards on the Upper deck SPONSORED by McDonald's.

A snippet of Rick Morrisey's column (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/columnists/cs-040904morrissey,1,4305051.column?coll=cs-home-utility) where he made what I thought were some very good points.

It's true other teams have had similar advertising at their parks for years. But it's also true the Cubs hold themselves up as better than other teams. Classier. More beholden to the past. They have marketed Wrigley as the place that time forgot. (Unfortunately, it also appears to be the place that structural engineers forgot.)

Let's see. The place is packed for 81 home games. The Cubs' average ticket price ($28.45) is the second highest in Major League Baseball, according to Team Marketing Report. They do quite well on revenue from TV and radio. Whose salary are they paying? Mick Jagger's?$ 28.45 is that all?
