I challenge Bob Young to purchase millions of dollars worth of stock in the Pontiac Silverdome if he thinks it's such a great business model.

And please invite the owners of teams who have spent millions on downtown stadiums to visit Hamilton and learn how wrong they were to tear down their highway side boxes in favour of urban locations.

The Houston Astros owner on their new stadium location debate:

Astros owner Drayton McLane Jr. said a downtown stadium would be best for baseball because it would generate excitement and put the team closer to the center of the region's population.

What a moron this guy is. Doesn't he know that stadiums in the middle of nowhere surrounded by parking lots and highways are far more exciting and engaging places??

Oh, and did I mention that the Houston Astros are located in Houston, Texas? Yes, sprawl loving, oil loving, car loving Texas.
