NFL

Bears ownership may change

With the NFL’s league meetings underway at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, teams will take a vote in the coming days to approve a slight alteration of ownership within the Bears.

According to a team spokesman, one of Mugs Halas’s two children has opted to sell a stake in the team – a small percentage of the franchise’s total ownership. That portion of the team – less than 10 percent – will be sold back to the Bears, whose majority ownership remains the Halas-McCaskey family.

Raiders appear headed to Vegas

NFL owners approved the Oakland Raiders’ move to Las Vegas at the league meetings on Monday.

The vote was a foregone conclusion after the league and Raiders were not satisfied with Oakland’s proposals for a new stadium, and Las Vegas stepped up with $750 million in public money. Bank of America also is giving Raiders owner Mark Davis a $650 million loan, further helping convince the owners to allow the third team relocation in just over a year.

Owners voted 31-1 to approve the move.

HOCKEY

U.S. women’s hockey in wage dispute

Fourteen U.S. senators wrote a letter to USA Hockey’s executive director Monday over their concerns about the treatment of the women’s national team.

Players have threatened to boycott the upcoming world championships over a wage dispute. The senators, all Democrats, urged David Ogrean to resolve the matter and ensure the team receives “equitable resources.”

The senators, all Democrats, joined a chorus of support that includes unions representing players from the NHL, NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball.

Those organizations said over the weekend they stood with the women’s team and criticized USA Hockey for attempting to find replacement players.
