More Spec Spinning:

"While the stadium debate has ramped up with Ticat owner Bob Young throwing the Aldershot location in Burlington into the mix, the main velodrome proponent says the west harbour site needs to be examined to see if it works for the long-term feasibility of the indoor cycling track.

Andrew Iler, of the Canadian Cycling Centre Hamilton, said the wrong site could doom the $11.4-million facility to failure."

I find it hard to believe that Mr. Iler would 'suggest' that the West Harbour site spell doom for the Velodrome. Also, Bob Young outed The Spec on CHML for spinning his interview their way.

I bet the full quote was in regards to the Airport being the 'Wrong Doomed Site', but of course the Spec spins it in their favour.

After a lengthy, healthy ticats.ca debate, I think that forum firmly supports West Harbour now, as well.

Anyone know why The Spec is so against the West Harbour?
