Cubs Reject Billboard Offer from Rooftop Clubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Owners of the rooftop clubs overlooking Chicago's Wrigley Field have a plan they say will help bankroll the renovation of the ballpark and allow continued views of Cubs games.

The owners say they want to put seven digital signs atop their buildings, generating $17.9 million annually, which they say they will share with the Cubs.

However, the spokesman for Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts says their numbers are unreal, noting the signs won't be visible during most television shots.

Ricketts wants to renovate Wrigley Field with private funds in a plan that includes building a hotel and a lifting of restrictions on outfield signs and night games.

The rooftop owners argue any attempt by the Cubs to block their views would violate the 2004 ordinance that landmark parts of Wrigley Field.
