The biggest problem for the location of the stadium will be overcoming the prejudice of our bedroom communities against the city.This is fact.I left Dundas to get away from this narrow mindedness.I love living downtown.Most of the people I grew up with neither come to the city core nor go to Toronto.They despise urban living.With Hamilton proper being a mid-size or small city,I can't fathom how anything will be built at all.Certainly nothing will satisfy these members of the community.They are not using the facilities we have now.Parking is all they care about.I must ask...what use is a light rail system up the mountain if most people in the community want to drive?They already do.They are taking shuttles directly from points outside downtown and 'avoiding' what they hate about urban living already.I have met many season ticket holders who have never been downtown and don't care to be there.

I personally want the stadium below the mountain.I do not want to go back to the burbs for anything.

Apparently,the Ti-cat owner is offering money to put it where he wants.That would be up the mountain.He is losing money and believes he can make this location work for him. He is also threatening to go elsewhere with the team.

Parish the thought my grandchildren watch our Hamilton team,in our downtown stadium,beat our former team with a new one.Leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
