Thanks, hadn't heard that. Before the Sheffield site, I remember reading rumors about the old Finkl steel plant (have they moved yet?), but I also remember reading that there were some serious environmental issues with that property, unsurprisingly.

Having an arena near McCormick Place seems like a mess that would not be worth it. The UC at least seems like it would be a better option than Rosemont.
