The Bears' player rep, Robbie Gould, led the 7th Inning stretch at Wrigley Field for the White Sox-Cubs game. About a resolution, Gould said:
"We are going to play football; we really are...
"And if we miss a season, it's really unfortunate. I think at the end of the day, when you get a group of people in the room working like they are working to get a deal done, a settlement will be reached and we will be playing football.
"It's just as to what date we're going to be back and when."
Have no fear Bears fans. There will be football this season. There's too much at stake. Besides, the first Sunday of this season is Sept. 11.
