"Stadiums should go on more derelict type land that will most likely never be used for residential, like the Lafarge site in Hamilton or just across the street there where the TigerCats mentioned."

I've dealt with this on my blog, in addition to commenting elsewhere: for me, the process of where a stadium should go is the first question that needs to be answered, even before the specifics of the facility are ironed out. So the question the resultant flow-chart stems from is:

Urban or sub-urban?

It can't be both.

The former is aligned with a public transit approach to quality of Life and everything it connotes, the latter with a car-centric world and all its attachments. So on the one side, you have Editor Ryan and those aligned with the 'My City, My Future' effort, and on the other, Bob Young and commenters such as HamiltonFan.

To me, much of the discussion here, and elsewhere, comes down to these opposing approaches...and they define the brouhaha and can -to a large extent- explain why things have gotten so messy.

Am I simplifying things a tad too much here...?
