^The design looks really great. Hopefully the real thing looks just as good.

Another black eye for the Canadian Football League as one of their prized new stadiums has multi-million dollar lawsuits flying through the uprights:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...lems-1.2981173

This coming on the heels of the expensively delayed full opening of Tim Horton's Field in Hamilton. Should happen soon. Should have happened last year.

The bad news hat trick comes from another new CFL park, in Ottawa, where season ticket sales are falling off after the first season of CFL football for the RedBlacks.

Who succeeded the bankrupt Renegades. Who succeeded the bankrupt Rough Riders.

Who'da thunk?

Interesting story on how much the BC Lions pay for renting BC Place. It seems to be a very good deal for the team. Wonder if the Whitecaps have a similar lease...

BC Lions' Rent Contract for Publicly Owned Stadium Finally Public

The BC Lions pay no rent on the first $9 million of net ticket sales to play at BC Place Stadium, according to their contract with BC Pavilion Corporation that was released under freedom of information on April 21.

The contract was inked in fall 2011, after the stadium reopened from a $514-million renovation that included a new retractable roof. In 2013-2014, the public-owned stadium reported its latest annual loss, $13.3 million.

The public release ends a nearly four-year quest for the document that went through two inquiries with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. An adjudicator dismissed both PavCo and the Lions' fears of financial harm, should the contract be released, as speculative.

Since 2013, the threshold of $9 million in net ticket sales has been tied to inflation and is the first of a six-step rent calculation for the 10 scheduled Canadian Football League home games. After the rent-free $9 million, the Lions are charged 10 per cent on the next million, 12.5 per cent on the next million, 15 per cent on the next million, 17.5 per cent on the next million and 20 per cent on all amounts over $13 million.
