Right on. Council needs to be willing to walk away.

Bob Young is negotiating like he has a much stronger hand than he does... Really, how does he move his team to a new city willing to finance a new 25,000 seat stadium?

Maybe we need a compromise site to bring Bob Young back to the table, but let's be clear about what we're giving up. Granted, the Longwood site is an actual compromise site (as opposed to the EM site, which was not) but the city would be giving up, A) important employment lands, and B) failing to remediate a brownfield.

Recognizing what we'd be giving up, we should demand real compromise from the Ti Cats or simply walk away and let the Ti-Cats walk away too.
