Regarding Jason's article - This is all city council needs to take from the Mitchell article:

“My job is to protect Bob Young, to protect the team and to protect the league. Sometimes that’s going to conflict with city-building.”

Council needs to make damn sure that if they are spending the majority of the costs for a stadium that they protect the city's investment from the Future Fund - this is not a donation to the tiger-cats, this is a big one-time investment in the city and we need the best return on that investment. In reality, the football team is a minor factor and as Mitchell admitted, they aren't necessarily good for city-building. It's WH versus IW plain and simple - may the best overall investment win.
