The Toyota Sign will be up soon. I guarantee you that.
In the meantime, I have compiled my least favorite quotes said by Tom Ricketts and his lackeys in defense of the advertisement.
"Revenue generated by the sign will help us maintain Wrigley Field for the next generation, This does not in any way destroy the character or the charm of Wrigley Field... This is a national treasure. We’re not doing anything at all to hurt that.” - Tom Ricketts, Cubs Chairman
“This is more than just a sign to us, it’s a multimillion dollar revenue opportunity, It also helps us generate the revenue that we need to maintain and improve Wrigley Field as a whole. These revenues are absolutely critical to us.” - Tom Ricketts
"Future investment in projects in the Wrigleyville community hinges on the approval of the sign. I have a lot of other dollars that can be invested in Wrigleyville, or not." - Tom Ricketts
“We are at a big competitive disadvantage if we cannot generate incremental sponsorship revenue in a tasteful manner that helps preserve Wrigley Field.” Wally Hayward, Cubs Executive Vice-President for Sales and Marketing
“We worked to create a sign and logo that would fit into the fabric of Wrigley Field,” - Wally Hayward
"The delay with the sign is disappointing because it reduces the resources needed by us to invest in the things that make Wrigley Field special," Mike Lufrano, Senior Vice President for Community Affairs
