Turbo,

The $60M Future Fund wasn't earmarked specifically towards a stadium. This is money for downtown.

This is the cash that BY is hijacking.

No one is suggesting that the CFL is a path to riches. In fact, we're trying to oppose paving that path for BY with our money! I have no problem with BY trying to earn money or even succeeding at earning money, but I fail to see any reason why tax dollars should not primarily benefit the city instead of BY.

You will also note that BY is perfectly willing to invest significant funds in land BESIDE the stadium. This, in my view, proves the main reason that WH wasn't acceptable to him. There's no way there for him to control all the revenue streams.
