oh i agree HF .. they came out pretty good in the deal
mitchell too nice? hahaha good one Earl ..
Actually i don't want to go back to the whole thing because you have blinders on so do some other people that come on here and it's like talking to my wifes cat .. but
If the cats were upfront and said WE DON'T LIKE THAT LOCATION from the get go then an alternative to the harbor could have been found and secure ..and when i say UP FRONT i mean before toronto was awarded the games way back in the planning stages when they and EVERYONE ELSE was told that the west harbor was being chosen for a stadium location .. then the location was drawn up with renderings to present to the pan am committee ( THE CATS KNEW THEN AND SAID ... NOTHING ) then while the wait was on the cats owner BOB YOUNG said " WE WILL WORK WITH THE CITY NO MATTER WHAT LOCATION " they had nothing bad to say .. then Toronto was awarded the games and Hamilton was a go .. THE CATS SAID NOTHING.. so the planning started ..THE CATS SAID NOTHING ... there was rumbling on here .. BUT THE CATS SAID NOTHING..
Then the business plan came out ..and the cats looked at it and realized their welfare days were doomed THEN THE CATS SAID SOMETHING AND THEN SAID THEY WERE AGAINST IT THE WHOLE TIME .. in the midst of all that the cats trashed the IWS location ..
Look what you have today ..ok you get a new built stadium with all the same ol downfalls
so you can say NICE GUY all you want they acted like snotty little spoiled kids ... you can blame mayor fred but up until the business plan came out he had no reason to look for option B because THE CATS SAID NOTHING ..
If the cats said from the get go that they did not like the WH location then i bet things would have been different but they didn't they waited to see what deal they were going to get ...
Ya nice guy alright ...
*i wonder if Hamilton recovered well from that knife in the back .... slung in by the cats cause that was a good backstabbing move that backfired
