Sounds a lot like leaving a Raptors or Leafs game doesn't it.

yea, except when I'm at a Raptors or Leafs game I purposefully go out for a bite and enjoy a bit of downtown TO instead of just sitting on the Gardiner for 20 minutes. I usually go to 2-4 Cats games per year, and that will go down to somewhere between zero and zero games if they locate the stadium way out there. I have better things to do with my Friday evenings than sit in a car in traffic with nothing but Horton's drive-thru's around and sit in my car after the game when I could be enjoying a night out downtown or in TO.

With a west harbour stadium I was worried that I'd be spending too much money on Cats games due to the surrounding entertainment options in Hess, James North, Bayfront/Pier 8 districts etc..... and the ease of getting to/from the stadium.

Hopefully the Cats' out-of-touch consultant is right and this location draws in gobs of people from Brantford or Burlington because they're losing this fan who lives in the heart of the Hammer.
