@ Iron Balls:

You may be surprised to find that many West Harbour supporters are also Ticat fans. These two passions are not mutually exclusive. :-)

@ everyone:

For most of my lifetime we have lived with the constant threat that the Ticats will be leaving town or going bankrupt. In a city of 500,000 people, surely, the Cats can have a sustainable business by putting a winning team on the field and having 25,000+ in the seats on a consistent basis.

We certanly csnnot let our emotions rule this matter. It gets very frustrating when listening to the pro-Ticats/Bob Young/EM folks constantly harp about how long they have had seasons tickets or how much the team means to the community. Everyone knows the Cats are beloved. We are not debating the cultural significcance of the team, however, this alone is not a business case. Put some imperical data on the table and work WITH the city council to move forward so that everyone gets some benefit from the Pan Am games.

One other issue that has been frustrating to me are all the harbour haters that haven't set foot down there in 20 years plus. I respect everyone's opinion, as long as it is informed.
