Chris Angel,

I had season tickets for 20 years and still attend many games per year.

As for Copps and Hamilton Place every cent the city has spent on them has been worth it. Just think what it would be like in this city if we didn't have them. No concerts, no sporting events other than the Ticats, no ice shows etc etc. We have had some of the best entertainment on the planet play here because of those venues. One of the greatest hockey games ever played, Canada against the Soviet Union, was played at Copps in the 1987 Canada Cup.

As for people here being anti sport your assumption is totally wrong. Most of us are Ticat fans and have stated that repeatedly. But we are Hamiltonians first and foremost and we support what we believe to be in the best interests of this city. We don't want the Ticats to leave town but we also don't want to compromise the goals of this city to revitalize the core of this city.

It may be true that having the stadium at the West Harbour will not in itself revitalize the core. However it will be another piece of the puzzle put in place to expedite the process.
