Starting new and expensive businesses in industries that are outside your area of expertise is not a good idea, by and large. Especially when those industries offer razor thin margins and extremely high rates of failure.

The question then becomes - is the marketing potential worth the likely net loss you would suffer by operating that type of business. I'm sure that their retail operations are partly justified in that sense.

Not the first sports bar in Ottawa.

I think it likely will succeed. But seriously, a lot of places fail in the market, and Ottawa doesn't have a great history of successful sports bars. Including in the market. It's not a slam dunk. McLarens, a couple of the Local Heroes (not all of them). Most other places either aren't strictly sports bars, or seem to have pretty short runs.
