I am completely underwhelmed by the "if they build it, they will come" argument. Are there any studies/business cases to prove that Hamiltonians that are not currently buying Ti-Cat tickets will suddenly do so if there is a new stadium at the same site as the current IWS?

Most people agree that the sitelines/promimity to the field at the current IWS make for some of the best views/game day experiences in the CFL.

Hamiltonians are not turning out in droves because the Ti-Cats are rarely more than a mediocre team. And this latest travesty of a stadium hostage-taking exercise by the Ti-Cat management has shown the Ti-Cats to be completely out-of-touch with the type of progressive, energetic city many Hamiltonians are looking to build.

I personally used to be a Ti-Cat fan. Now all I do is read the results of games in the Spec. Last game I actually laughed when reading about the last-minute loss the Ti-Cats experienced. Yes, I am bitter.
