according to most recent published reports out of winnipeg, Asper is now out, but the team is still agreeing to contribute $85 million to the stadium. The Ticats are offering a spectacular deal of $0 dollars. And to be honest, even if the Bombers came out tomorrow and said "we aren't paying a dime", that still wouldn't change my position that this Ivor Wynne deal stinks. No sports team, anywhere, in any city should get a 100% free tax-funded handout like this.

Many of you supporting the Cats and their corporate welfare would flip a lid if you found out that the city of Hamilton was going to pay 100% of the cost for a new multi-million dollar plant for Fox 40 or US Steel or Walmart etc......
