Thanks for this, Ryan. I appreciate you expressing things as you have.

This is what a financial impact report looks like when it is not coloured by emotion. Contrast this cool analysis with the City of Hamilton's obvious desperation to find some deal - any deal - that accommodates the Ticats.

It should go without saying, but unfortunately doesn't, that the same framing can be applied to almost every element of how all 'this' has been handled by everyone. By City Council, by the Ti-Cats, by The Spec, by CHML...and yes, by RTH.

Often what irks us, what triggers us in others is simply a subconscious acknowledgement about this same attribute or quality in ourselves. When all is said and done, it would behoove RTH (and its faithful) to honestly review its behaviour, its tack throughout this quite-frustrating interlude. Because many of the criticisms of the aforementioned entities can be applied to the goings-on here.
