The business is broken and just might be terminal. When you can't fill the current stadium when you offer cheap seats and many giveaway seats, exactly why do you believe you can make it profitable? Higher ticket prices in a utilitarium stadium? Nobody has even talked about whether or not there will be boxes at the stadium. If there will be, who is going to pay for them? Given Chris Murray's warning about it "not being the Taj Mahal", will they feature lawn chairs and TV tray tables?

What's even more confounding is why are we still bending over backwards to accommodate a losing business? It simply isn't worth the investment we're being asked to make. CFL teams can make money. Some do. But the Hamilton franchise has been subsidized for too long by the owner and by the taxpayer. Time to either rethink the business model entirely, or pull the plug, just like in any other business.

Tough decision, I know, but somebody's got to make it.
