Not the case with me race. If BY doesn't get to deal directly with the city on a lease and development project for WH, I hope he never agrees to play at WH even if it means taking the team to another community or even folding the team. I'm not the only one that feels like this.

Bob deserves that right and if the city doesn't choose to give him that right, then Bob has done what he could in my books.

I am hoping IWS2 works out though, keeping my fingers crossed. This will beneficial for me as it means the Rheem site is saved from a stadium or arena type development which I don't want to see there. Would love to see an ampitheatre and more of an arts/music focus added to the area.

As well, for those that wish this, the area is "saved" for an arena and entertainment complex for those that want to see this in the future that would see more activity than a stadium ever would. At some point Copps might not be worth renovating for the NHL but Hamilton is on the radar with the likes of Balsillie and Katz types. So they can play out of Copps while the new arena/district is being developed at the Rheem site.
