That would be walking a fine line. Perhaps coming to a compromise. As they are still Hamilton's team removing the name Hamilton all together from merchandise may not work but adding the name of where they are playing could be a great Merchandise Idea.
HAMILTON TIGER CATS IN GUELPH
HAMILTON TIEGER CATS IN MONCTON
Right now the odds are that out of the 1 pre season game and 9 regular season games 7 will be in Guelph, one at Rogers Centre on Labor Day, and one in Moncton for the TD Atlantic. That is 9 games with just one, TD Atlantic so far out of the Hamilton region. One Away game at Rogers gives people from Hamilton another game in which they could attend that would be as close as possible. so that is back up to 9 of the Tiger cat games as close to Hamilton as possible.
I think that Hamilton and Toronto will play each other three times in the schedule rotation if two of the three are schduled to be in Toronto that will give the People of Hamilton 10 games in which they could attend being as close as possible to Hamilton, even if two are away games.
This would leave the Ti Cats one last game to be creative with scheduling. To me Quebec City at Laval vs Montreal would be a possibility. One game at TD Waterhouse in London may be a better location for that 10th game. TD Waterhouse already have the seating necessary to expand TD Waterhouse to 16,000 as part of there set up much like Moncton already has 10,000 tempoary seats so in both places their would not be any cost to purchase extra seating like at Guelph but simply pay for the the removing the temp seats from storage and put them up. London's 8,000 temp seats are put in pace leaving the end zone area to the right of the home side still open to put up the VIP tents much like Winnipeg did for those who where expecting the new stadium would be up for the suites.
The final sight could be a long shot for a summer game at UB Stadium in Buffalo. Already a capacity of 30,000 so no temp seats needed as well as a 400 meter track enabling the CFL field dimensions to fit in the stadium laysing more turf extendint the endzone much like in Moncton.
The Griffiths Stadium Idea with the riders as their opponent is out of the Mix as the TS Atlantic Game the CFL wants to feature the Riders as Hamilton's Opponent. Plus The extra seats needing to be brought in would cost as they are not already part of the regular expansion of seats like in Moncton and London.
