While Bettman continues to insist that American communities with no interest in hockey should be the one receiving the teams, Jim Balsillie and the City of Hamilton haven’t given up on their bid to bring another team to Southern Ontario. Friday June 19th a rally was held near Copps Coliseum to show support for bringing the team to Hamilton. A side benefit of the rally was a large donation of goods to the food bank. The one drawback to this is that Hamilton my lose the Bulldogs. Bulldog supporters were at the rally too to draw attention to this fact.
Unfortunately the pics below don’t show just how large the crowd was. One of the drawbacks of being short. 🙂
