Many councilors actually believe its just negotiations when in fact its reality that the Tigercats won't willingly play at Rheem

That is negotiations. I want this, you want that, if we can agree on something we sign a contract, if we can't agree we walk away. Council finally grew a set and walked away. Now the ball's in the Ticats court. They can walk away too if they don't like the deal on offer. Or they can agree to it and sign the contract. Either way, it's negotiating.

What's not negotiating is holding a gun to the city's head and saying "Give us what we want or else." That's extortion.

nor will they or anyone else contribute financially to the stadium if its located there

No, except all the companies that do want to invest there because they see it's a place they can make money.
