Wow... I didn't know that. That is huge. I hate flying in to Toronto and getting the $50 cab ride to the hotel.
Don't worry, I'm sure they will find a way to make you spend that kind of money anyway

I've read the same thing in the past though, about why Toronto could never host it. It has to do with more than just hotels and things like that too -- currency is another issue, media, weather, etc. The ASG is one giant money-making extravaganza, bigger than anything Toronto has ever seen or hosted.

I'm not saying it can't be done; these are just a few of the many reasons why such undertaking was never attempted before. I'm trying to find Doug Smith's old blog post about this in 2010 but I can't seem to find it or it's not there anymore.
