Cats part company over vague language to deal
February 05, 2008
Steve Milton The Hamilton Spectator
A highly-placed CFL source suggested to The Spec
on the weekend that the Tannenbaum-Rogers bunch
-- representing only about 95 per cent
of the sports money in this shire --
wanted a general letter of support
from the Tiger-Cats on their NFL concept.
Ticat president Scott Mitchell adamantly
refused to comment on that, but
it wouldn't be a shocker if it were true.
With suggestions already surfacing that
the federal government should look at
protecting the Canadian cultural institution
-- the CFL can't truly be just a business
when everyone expects to lose money every year
-- it sure wouldn't hurt the Rogers
Stadium Limited Partnership bunch
to have a letter in hand that shows
the condemned man agreed to the
general concept of his own execution.
Kudos to bob and Scott
for not playing into the hand
of the Roger's wanna-be NFL owners.
