According to the Spectator today, they polled 50 people at a Ticats game and it was even-steven for the West Harbour location versus some other location near the QEW (21 vs 21).
"I've been coming to games for over 25 years, and we sit right here in Box J," said Chris Nunn, who now lives in Burlington. "This is easily the best place in all of North America to watch a football game."
However, Nunn said that if the west harbour site is chosen, he'd be happy to take the bus in from Burlington to watch his Tiger-Cats.
Other fans, such as Philip Thompson, are decidedly more passionate about the west harbour location.
"I think they've done a great job fixing up the bay area, and I think it would be a really positive thing for Hamilton," said Thompson, who lives in the city. "If we do want a hockey team one day, that's a good start. We have to put ourselves on the map."
So I'm not so sure the often-touted "overwhelming" vote for a highway-accessible location is really so overwhelming. Of course, this is not a statistical survey, but interesting that it was conducted at a Ticats game, eliminating anyone who doesn't go to Ticats games.
