The Ticats are a CFL team. They are never going to make money. It has nothing to do with the stadium or the location of the stadium. The problem is the lack of TV revenue. The only team that made money last year as far as I know was Saskatchewan and thats only because they are community owned and supported by fundraising events aside from the games.

Mark Cohon knows that and yet he is trying to portray the league as wildly successful. If he thinks that having 7 of 8 franchises losing money is successful then I wouldn't want him running my business.

Building this stadium at the West Harbour is about building this city and adding one more piece to what is needed to get downtown Hamilton out of the funk that it is in. The stadium isn't going to instantly revive the downtown, but it will help fill in the puzzle that when completed will see the revitalization of what is now an embarassment to the citizens of this city.

There is absolutely no arguement that could justify putting the stadium on the East Mountain other than Bob Young financing and building it himself.
