If it's a good place to watch the game and entertain myself, I dont care who owns it. It's not like the maple leafs budget of infinity will change based on ottawa earned Real Sports dollars.
In what way are they seperate entities!?!?!?! Tax credits go to the parents, but they still benefit the family. Extra dollars going into MLSE might not make a huge difference to the Leafs - but it's completely valid to think that I would for the Senators group. This was a missed opportunity. In addition to the revenue, it would have been a natural connection to the city (for those of us that don't live all the way out in Kanata).

I'm sure that I'll go (and think that it's really cool). But, easy parking + supporting home grown businesses means that it's unlikely to become my go to spot.
