Ron Foxcroft created a bit of a stir with his interview on The Fan 590 on August 10. It's a real gem. Here's one part:
There is a side of city council that us lifer Hamiltonians call "the dark side", and the dark side, there's a few of them, maybe half a dozen of them, they have a collective IQ of about minus seventeen.
They don't get it. They don't see it. They get re-elected in their little wards, and in their little wards the way they get re-elected is they don't spend money, they don't have vision, they put a stop to everything progressive, they get cats out of trees and they put stop signs up.
This group then votes in blocs to stop many things that are progressive.
Foxcroft is supportive of Confederation Park as a stadium site. When asked why he thought Confederation Park was removed from consideration, he said council was "fixated" on the West Harbour, saying that at the West Harbour "there is one lane in, one lane out, and there's parking for about 600 people".
Host Bob McCown asked Foxcroft, "When confronted with this evidence...how do [West Harbour supporters] respond to what is clearly an unworkable site?"
They ridicule Bob Young, they vilify Bob Young, they beat him up. They basically show an unfriendly attitude to someone like Bob Young who saved the team, put $32 million into the team.
Basically, anybody in business is screwing somebody, so there must be something wrong with Bob Young. This hurts me so badly.
