The problem with CFL teams can be stadium, as well as ownership.
One of the biggest problems with Toronto is their stadium. For one it's not built for football, it's a baseball stadium and it's way to big for the market. It's the same issue that Montreal had back in the 80's playing in the big O. TO has a great owner right now.
It's really too bad that Hamilton did end up going with a stadium in Hamilton, the possibility of a stadium being build half way between TO and Hamilton and used by both teams could have saved both teams, they would be able to split the costs for the stadium(or else Hamilton could lease it to TO for a better deal then TO in Rogers, essentially the same in the end) and both had a brand new CFL style stadium.
Look at the Bombers,(my team) they are looking to make an extra 4-5M annually at the new digs vs. Canad Inns stadium and this is a team that MADE over $2M last year, to Bombers are now going to be able to consistently generate a profit, although there is stadium repayments that will need to be made because of how much the Bombers are on the hook for.
If the Argos could do something similar, except with a 27-28K seat stadium and 50-100 suites, built to allow future expansion in two phases of 34K and 40K, they would have the facility problem solved. For some reason(not sure why) I have a feeling the Argos would do better if they were more North and/or East of Toronto(York University might work nicely)
In addition to the issues for the Argos is that playing at Rogers schedule gives then a HORRID schedule. They have a mid July Wednesday game, a Monday game the week before labour day weekend. Their schedule is messed up.(although the weekday afternoon pre-season game could be genius if their deal with locals schools gets the stadium packed with over 40K, even if those students are only paying $10-15 for cheap seats.
It's a similar problem with Ottawa in that Frank Claire as it was in 2005 was not the best facility for football, it needed work. And as you mention Hamilton has issues with Ivor Wynn. They just weren't built to be modern pro-facilities.
Ownership is definitely the problem out east(Quebec or Maritimes), the exception may prove to Moncton(and hopefully will be) as there seems to be a will there to hold touchdown Atlantic annually and in 2013 Moncton might hold a whole bunch of Hamiltons home games, if they are able to show consistent support in 2013 that could push them towards a team relatively quickly(like 2017-2020)
Hopefully Hamilton increases the seating capacity for their new digs then for some reason the new stadium might only be 22K seats, which seems a little crazy to have under 25K seats but if they can get fans paying $52-53 on average that will work.
Most owners don't tend to buy a team to make money, they tend to own teams more to say they own a team, but they for sure don't ever buy a team to lose money... well unless it's the Pheonix Coyotes
