Milton?

Seriously, Milton? That's the best counteroffer he can get?

I mean, he could build a stadium cheaply there and would get all the spin-off development he'd want... but would he have any fans there? I mean, Milton's a lovely little town wrapped in a big suburb, and the 905-sprawl north of Hamilton is a big enough market, but only if you can get the whole mass of Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington to identify with the Milton Tiger Cats as "their" team. Otherwise it's going to be seen as nothing but The Other Toronto CFL Team. The CFL's answer to the Mets, as if the CFL could afford to have that kind of business.

Maybe it'll be branded as the Mississauga team, just located in Milton? Or will it just be the Ontario Tiger-Cats (not unheard-of, look at the Sask. and B.C. teams)?

I honestly don't know how this is going to work.
