say what said,

"Its not too hard to believe that even using IWS in its current condition would result in a much better Grey Cup than in 96 although the proof of that thinking will never be known."

Agreed. I think it would be better for two basic reasons

1) as already mentioned, the increased popularity of the CFL and it's improved business operations.

2) Bob Young's abilities as team owner to put on a terrific game day experience. While criticizing certain aspects of his ownerships is understandable, he gets full marks from me for providing a fun filled entertainment event that would no doubt translate well into hosting a Grey Cup. Heck, even the current Tigertowns at other grey Cup locales get excellent reviews and consistent kudos.

Now, having said all that, I have no doubt that it would be even that much better at a WH location given the picturesque setting and downtown location which is most amenable for a NATIONAL Grey Cup party/event. Nothing could better than to showcase our city on a national level than such exposure to our waterfront and downtown.
