All those points would be valid IF Copps wasn't located downtown Hamilton.

I understand Hamilton has Power Centres and parking lots galore.

But Copps Coliseum is downtown inside a dense urban area. Copps is not near the Centre Maul, or in the Meadowlands or on Centennial Parkway. It's downtown.

Copps is within walking distance of other amenities that a big city can offer. Copps is on major public transit routes, including a LRT soon. Copps is within walking distance of many unique restaurants. GO Train station is walkable, hotels are within walkable distances.

Any great stadium is built downtown. There would be major differences from experiencing a game in Aldershot or Copps Coliseum.

This was a satire piece about Burlington's suburban fabric. That's the reason why I didn't say the Great things if a NHL team was put into Copps.
