From the Hamilton Spectator:
There are rumours that the city and the Ticats are in talks about a new stadium - this time near Chedoke Golf Course.
A councillor has told the Mountain News that a site near Longwood and Aberdeen is in the mix for a Pan Am stadium as the clock ticks down. The councillor said the city and senior Ticats executives are discussing the site.
This is not the first time this location has been floated, and it's one that satisfies several requirements of the Tiger-Cats as well as some of the city-building objectives of the city. That said, it's very late in the day to be choosing new locations, especially given that timing is one of the key requirements of HostCo.
All that aside, we've learned to take anything coming out of the Mountain News with a grain of salt. Our take on this right now: it's an unsubstantiated rumour with a strong likelihood of being false.
But it's certainly interesting nonetheless.
Update: So this rumour turned out to be true. Kudos to the Mountain News, and sorry for ever doubting you.
