Ryan, You probably don't appreciate and can't appreciate the iconic grounds of the IWS site but I do and many others do and regard these grounds as hallowed here in Hamilton with the the long historic history of our Tiger-Cats on these grounds. Yes, you and Fred and others didn't get the West Harbour as your stadium site (thank goodness, went down there today for a walk at the harbourfront and so glad this area is infested with a sports stadium with screeming football and soccer fans, I can imagine my sister with a visit from Toronto to the harbourfront for a first visit there and hearing screaming sports fans, she is not a sports fan, and would have said what a sad situation. The harbourfront was saved by Bob Young, thankfully, for a music ampitheatre and quite residential and light retail. Thank goodness!). I have full respect for Fred Eisenberger and he should receive another chance as Mayor, but he was totally wrong on a huge sports stadium at our waterfront. And that is my evidence-based take, of course everyone loves to use the term evidence-based how they see fit.
