Regardless, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth that MLSE will be profiting off the Byward Market, probably hurting some local Ottawa bar/restaurant owners, all the while giving Leafs fans in our region another reason to puff their chests out and be cocky.
Then somebody from Ottawa should have stepped up and done something to cater to the high end sports bar market. Nobody has.

Of course they are coming here for the money. Why else would a business open??

Most people going into Real Sports will not know its owned by MLSE as they probably wont care. I also assume the majority of people there will be Sens fans as well.

I dont get the big fuss about them coming here. If the smaller businesses suffer, ya it sucks but thats part of business.
