A letter writer decries the bad behaviour of some Ticat fans after the Labour Day Classic.

Reading about the recent issues with the renovation of Ivor Wynne Stadium or the new construction of another stadium, and where to put that field and who exactly is pulling the strings in the whole disastrous puzzle has been, well, entertaining and frustrating.
I was firmly situated with Camp Harbourfront. With or without the TiCats, the Harbourfront seemed to me to make the most sense. My certainty is wavering on any location, however.
A few excerpts regarding the Labour Day Classic football game from the Opinion page of The Spectator, Sept. 10: "Not only were they drinking to excess, they were smoking what appeared to me to be crack cocaine...", the writer refers to the people in front of her near the sidelines, the expensive seats, no question.
Add this in another letter: "... no less than 20 males, adults and children, using the Prince of Wales school - that my children would return to the next day - as a giant public urinal".
Finally, going back to the original author, now referring to people other than the apparent crack smokers: "The final straw came when a drunken Ticat fan deliberately peed on me...".
One expects a raucous, fun, rowdy crowd for professional sports games, but you can have fun without being disrespectful, rude and obnoxious.
Peeing on people and property? This is why we can't have nice things, Hamilton.
