I know nothing about construction, so I ask this: if Hamilton wants a 10K-seat stadium/arena, is it not possible to retro-fit Copps Coliseum to change it from 17,383( I googled it) to something more like 8K or so, with more space, then, for restaurants, suites, shops, etc? Is it really necessary to tear down Copps entirely? Copps/FOC( I’ll never get used to First Ontario Centre) is fairly centrally located in Hamilton.Considering Hamilton is already knee-deep in a fight about building an LRT system(which I think HAM would benefit much more from), I just don’t think an entirely new arena is a really unnecessary expense - much different than the 75-year old rink that the MC replaced
