With all the complaints about the lack of awarding a Grey Cup to Ottawa the past two years with the RedBlacks taking the field, the most important fact is now conceded in the story. Hopefully Hamilton reads this and comes to understand it as well.
The right to play host to the Grey Cup was never expressly guaranteed, but rather was conditional on a formal bid acceptable to the CFL and its board of governors.
In line with the timeframe for most awarding announcements, the “finally” is hardly deserved.
