The last third of the first (3pm) hour on Prime Time Sports has an interview with Ron Foxcroft and his insight into the stadium negotiations. The first third of the second (4pm) hour has Bob McCown and John Shannon discuss the situation. The PTS podcast (on iTunes) is worth subscribing to and skipping all but the CFL parts.

I also disagree with the suggestion Ottawa is a possible location for the Ti-Cats:

  • Ottawa stadium isn’t ready until 2013
  • The CFL wants to expand, not have their expansion team poached by the movement of another team, even if they retain local Ottawa owners. Any move would require board approval and I can’t see Ottawa passing.
  • My guess, if it comes to that, is somewhere local in southern Ontario with a temporary stadium or Quebec City or Moncton, again with a temporary stadium. However, I don’t see Bob Young interested in owning a team in the latter locations.

Let me emphatically state I support the Tiger-Cats remaining in Hamilton for generations and having much success on the field and on the balance sheet.
