This is the best tossed out there thought/idea I have ever read on this forum. Such common sense and forward thinking. I just did a drive by of IWS with this idea in mind, and theres no question leaving the north stands and going north south with the new stands could work very well.
I would enjoy hearing Caretakers thoughts on this, and would like to see the City examine the idea fully. 40000 ish may be to many at times but over the years renos to the north side (new end zone) could include additional corporate entertainment areas and possibly a game day resturant with a nice view of the field.
Not all the seats have to be sold as cheap seats, some window dressing to hide part of the stands and to top it all off, why not incorporate a new home for the HOF say to the east or west end of the north stand.
All things that can be done but dont have to be done by 2014, plus 10000 temp sits for Grey Cup will make for 50000 total.
