i agree. there are a large number of corporate and old-boys STH at ACC, many of whom schmooze well into the 2nd and 3rd periods before emerging from their sub-platinum suites to bother watching the game. they are spirit killers. filling the lower bowl red-line with $1500 suits just doesn't inspire the working folks above.

like winnipeg, markham would presumably start with an open lottery for all STH. beer drinkers will have just as much chance as those reliant on their favourite sommeliers. folks wouldn't have to wait for uncle harold to die and leave them a pair in his will. yes, you think winnipeg's first standing O was long, just wait for markham's. or better yet, get ready for the hammer's.
