Yes, just a sh...t disturber, in a good and fun way, who likes to rackle the chains of people here. And I'll admit, he does an excellent job of this quite often. Sorta like Feschuk at The Star: :wink:

World Cup soccer in Canada might be just the start: Feschuk

North American joint bid for 2026 men’s World Cup could spark interest in building mega-stadium in Toronto, the kind you host an Olympics around....

It certainly has exponentially more cache than, say, the 2015 Pan Am Games. And think about it: The Hamilton Tiger-Cats managed to wrangle themselves a new stadium worth about $140-some million by tying construction to a modest schedule of Pan Am soccer matches. The FIFA World Cup is the world’s biggest sporting event. So scale your ambitions accordingly. Certainly the folks who’ve long pined for Toronto to become home to an NFL team could dream about the synergies.

I saw that, too. Feschuk doesn't even believe his own argument.

I noticed that too Kevin that he basically made fun of his own argument, as you say. :)

It was a half-@ssed attempt. Perhaps his editor told him to write the article.

Again, I wrote the PM and Primier and said, `NO money for NEW stadiums` - leaving out the part about `unless it is for the Stamps or Als`.

I told you the World Cup bid would resurrect NFL stadium talk in TO. That is all I predicted. I didn't ever say anything about the likelihood of that talk turning into anything real. :P

Why does making trouble give you pleasure, Patrick? :(

Predicting something that came true is 'causing trouble? Interesting concept.

Patrick loves being the devil advocate on issues, like NFL talk in Toronto on a CFL forum. It's makes his innards come alive. :D

Canada gets 10 games and we will spend billions on stadiums for this?

Also Toronto cannot have any games featuring Canada as no one will go to those games in that city
