From a Steve Milton story in Monday’s Hamilton Spec …
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, close to inking the final deal for games during the Canadian Football League regular season, are still trying to decide where they’ll go before that.
The deadline for signing the Memorandum of Understanding between the Cats and the University of Guelph for at least six of the Cats’ nine home games in Guelph was extended two weeks from its original Jan. 31 date. But team president Scott Mitchell is confident that, once the first version of the CFL schedule is released to teams within the next couple of weeks, signing the memorandum won’t be much more than a formality.
However, the club is still deciding where to hold training camp in the late spring and has not yet signed a contract for a home practice field while the Pan Am stadium is being built on the site of the dearly departed Ivor Wynne Stadium.
“We’re waiting for the first generation of schedule and then we’ll provide that to Guelph,” Mitchell told The Spectator. “We can’t announce the schedule until we’ve got everything confirmed with Guelph.
“There’s a 99.9 per cent chance those dates will work because those were the dates that Guelph provided to us and the CFL has been working with. We’ve agreed on almost everything else in there and there’s just basically agreeing on the schedule.”
