The problem is that fundamentally there isn't a business model there that makes any sense. CFL just has too low revenues, so while a huge stadium makes sense in that it allows more fans to attend the games, it fails for business reasons because it's basically going to be charity from the city:

"Yes, you can get a few extra ticket sales during a banner year, but at the cost of piles more taxpayer money".

Ultimately, for the city it might be a better investment to have a stadium that sells out a little more often than one that allows larger sales for larger games... since either way, we're going to take a bath on this, financially.
