I was watching CHCH news last evening, paying particular attention to Scott Urquart interviewing Ticat fans outside of Ivor Wynne. In answering the question of which site they preferred, two out of the three shown indicated the East Mountain site. The first man, from Brantford, said it would be more convenient for him, and the second one, while admitting to knowing little about the issue, thought the parking would be better.

What struck me, however, was that despite those preferences, they were still attending the game, which, I believe, had an attendance of 25,000, making it obvious that people attend, not because of location, but because they are fans of the game. So the need for a "driveway to driveway" experience the Tiger-Cat organization is always on about does ring a bit hollow, just another reason City Council should stand firm against Bob Young's extortionate tactics.
