@CaptainKirk - if the draw of a sporting event was comfy chairs and good concessions - then wouldn't people just stay home? Ain't noone gonna replicate my super-comfy couch and my husband's amazing tacos.

As for ancillary entertainment - IWS can host the same marching bands, etc. that the new stadium will.

I used to go to Ti-Cat games for something much more intangible. Corny as it sounds, I think it was for civic pride. The chance to be part of a cheering mass of proud Hamiltonians, to feel part of the spirit of this city.

Unfortunately now I see the Ti-Cats as part of the whole tainted, back-room-dealing old boys' club that has governed this city (and held it back) for far too long. They are an anachronism, a throwback.

I am far from cool, yet far too cool to be a Ti-Cat fan.
