I think the buzz during the Arlington stadium soap opera was that Duchissoiss (sp?) needed Daley's support to get some things relating to Arlington Park racetrack through the legislature. So he was easily influenced or intimidated by Daley. However, it's not clear that Daley would be able to strong arm other suburban politicians especially in Dupage county. They would have the Republican connection counterweight to offset any shenanigans Daley might try to pull. Daley needs Republican support to get many things he needs and desires for Chicago. There would be a cost for any vindictiveness toward on a suburb luring the Fire away from Chicago. So if Chicago is not an alternative for the Firehouse, then maybe a suburban location is. In terms of central location, somewhere near the convergence of the Eisenhower/I-88, I-290 and Tri-State would be the best in terms of access. If a spot could be located that also could have Metra access via the Burlington Northern, it would be about as good as you can do. Travel from all the burbs would be as reasonable as could be expected given the shift West. Naperville hasn't been perfect, but has generally been a pleasant place to go to. I think it shows that a right sized stadium for the Fire could be great.
