I believe Bob Youngs argument is 20,000 is about as much as the team can hope to draw from the immediate Hamilton area. What he is hoping to get by locating closer to a highway is a higher draw from fans further away.

I.W. is not a terrible location to get to if you are already in Hamilton. It takes me about 30 minutes from Barton/James. But if you think about the commuter from further away, for example Guelph/Kitcher/Waterloo that 30 minutes brings the total commute to well over the "magical hour" I think most people have in their mind as an acceptable commute time.

It is those further away people he is hoping to bring in, by turning the TiCats into a more regional draw (which honestly is a GOOD thing for Hamilton).


Of course, that does not excuse the financial mess this thing is in, but I think the above is the general idea, and its hard to argue against that.
