Obligatory Stephen Brunt Ticat Article

And here it is. Not a bad article as it explains the city's motivation. I would disagree with him on how "tricky" getting to the stadium would be. Considering Bob Young has proposed an Aldershot site, the West Harbour doesn't seem too bad. Naylor also has an article in the Globe on the subject.

Also in the Globe, the Cats have released running back Kenton Keith, who was injured in training camp last year and didn't play a single down in 2009. Truly signing Keith at the end of 2008 was a bidding war the Cats would have been better off losing, especially the fact that Keith was probably paid over $100,000 per year.

Regarding the stadium, there obviously has to be compromise on both sides. Would the city charge for parking for the spots at Bayfront Park and give the proceeds to the Cats on game days? I'm OK with that, or perhaps trading that revenue for the Cats' upfront contribution for the stadium. Those are the things that are going to have to happen for a deal to be worked out and probably some people will have a problem with that. As a Ticat and Hamilton booster I don't, but we'll see what happens.
