The Chicago Cubs are not happy about a rooftop ad for a local casino that can be seen from inside Wrigley Field.Horseshoe Casino placed its ad on the roof of a nearby house last April. The sign can be seen behind the left-field bleachers during Cubs games- even on TV.

To block the view of the casino ad, the Cubs have put up two sign boards in the back of the bleachers. The ball club intends to sell advertising space on those in-park billboards.

For many years, a Budweiser sign was on the rooftop now involved in the dispute.
