He simply couldnt make money by putting events in a stadium in hamilton anywhere period . Very few cfl teams in the last 20 years have made a profit and that includes the ones operating the stadium and getting concert and event revenue..end of story. You would be taking some concerts and events from copps to there and you wouldnt be adding too many more events outside of the proposed soccer team in a league that averages 4,000 per game. There is a limit to how many concert and events you can hold in hamilton in a year, it's just the way it is. If that were true the CFL teams (bigger cities) with better attendance would be profitable..they aren't.The only way he could possible make money or break even is a sold out stadium. Atleast she asked the question and we got a answer about the break even point...well come labor day..for one game anyway he will be breaking even.
