Why Hamilton? Other cities put up money with the team to bring Grey Cups to their city? Why shouldn't Hamilton do the same? And Vancouver did well with the past Grey Cup as the link below indicates, money well spent to bring the GC there, albeit Hamilton is no Vancouver as we know. If I'm the CFL, I don't think I'd put a Grey Cup in Hamilton regardless who pays for it, the city is just too small time and rinky dink, albeit I do love living here and going to Cat games as a season ticket holder.

The benchmark is the Riders, if they can make some millions in a year, over 6 mill last year, why can't all the cities? But RiderPride is hard to match I'll agree, something we won't ever see in Hamilton I'm sure.

Also remember the NFL isn't coming to Hamilton or other cities in Canada anytime soon. If people want pro football in their city in Canada, support your local CFL team.
