Cuban was reported to have bid 1.3 billion. We have been told Cuban’s actual bid was 1 bil. There was an offer to include 300 million in advertising to WGN, owned by the Tribune. That is how the 1.3 figure came about.
Tom Ricketts is now far and away the "leader in the clubhouse". His bid is not only sufficient, but sources believe he is much more likely to be approved than a Cuban bid...
"Cuban is not only out of it, he was never in it."
