Bob Young is caretaker, of the Hamilton TigerCats. He has never referred to himself as caretaker of the city of Hamilton.

I think that council will vote for the WH after today's fairly high profile proceedings for the FF BoG group. People don't have to worry about hurting Bob's feelings, he's a very wealthy man, close to a billionaire. He will be the fall guy if he thinks that the WH site is not only a bad deal for the TigerCats but more importantly a bad deal for Hamilton taxpayers and not put a penny towards a WH stadium site. Then should HOSTCO say no stadium for Hamilton, he can rest peacefully knowing he's done what's right for the team he owns and for the taxpayers of the city saving them the FF money to be spent on projects that are more worthwhile than a stadium in a wrong location.

And I agree with him, a stadium at the WH will be a failure in terms of a money generating facility for the city of Hamilton. But yes, it could do what I think the mayor intended from the stadium, and not much more, get the site cleaned up. Although why would you build a stadium with no legacy partner and use the FF for this purpose when you could use that money and not have to spend it on a stadium that will not have a legacy partner? That would make no sense to me at all.
