Horrible news for the State of Illinois and for any fan of the Chicago Bears
A measure that is kicking around in the Illinois senate right now is not a good one for the Chicago Bears. The bill would make it so in professional sports in Illinois over 35 yrs old ineligible for workmans comp. Also what really is an awful thing is that the McCaskeys are the ones really pushing this bill as well as other Bears management. Well Demaurice Smith took notice of this and here is his quote
“I will tell you from the bottom of my heart that this union will tell every potential free agent player, if this bill passes, to not come to the Bears. Because, think about it, if you’re a free agent player and you have an opportunity to go play somewhere else where you can get lifetime medical for the injury you’re going to have, isn’t a smarter financial decision to go to a team where a bill like this hasn’t passed?”
Like the Bears need another reason for a free agent to not come to Chicago.
