All I can say is that we (the city) have just got a current up to date lesson in how sports owners really operate within their respective cities when they don't get what they want. This is sports buisness 101. The book must be called 'Sports Owners vs City Councils'. I believe the Mayor has read the book and that is why he is sticking to his guns. Not to be pushed around. Most fans won't understand this because we are emotional towards sports teams but it is what it is. Hamilton prioities are not to the Tigercats but to the city books. I have already moved on from this stadium issue myself. Meaning it is in HostCo's hands now. I live in Hamilton and it's not going anywhere but the Ticats are a business they have every right to go. If they want to leave..leave!

Hamilton needs to focus on things that aren't sexy like sports teams right now. Multi sport PanAm games don't come around very often so it IS a great opportunity to get things done at a set date but we need real jobs in this city and infrastucture so the sports teams will come knocking down our doors to spend. It's like what my cousin says 'You become successful and you don't need to find a cute successful women..they will find you!' Hopefull they're successful enough to pay for half the dinner.
