Hey Quinn nice to hear from someone from Edmonton. I know Bob Young has these "experts" but i wonder if he has gone to other CFL stadiums to make comparisons etc..or if any of his experts have made comparisons..parking etc. Has he checked into see how many events other CFL stadiums are getting...and actually if it is very profitable doing so. I don't think he has, i think he is going on this "expert' approach and not a common sense approach. Outdoor football stadiums in Canada basically make no money..this isnt rocket's not a secret. You can only hold so many events in a outdoor stadium that is open at best 6 months of the year. There is also the fact the CFL cities have arenas open all year round. You could draw concerts (from copps and make it lose even more money) but there is only so many people that can draw 20,000 plus. I stated in another comment that when Toronto has a concert on...they sign a deal that states that artist can't play within a certain mile distance of Toronto (a certain time frame)..and that includes Hamilton. That has been going on for years and why alot of concerts tours bypass Hamilton or luckily end up on another leg of a north american tour. Having a 2nd tier soccer league that averages 4,000 per game isnt going to be a money maker either.
