I really think that Saint Mary's should be included in trying to gain support for this stadium since they could be an immediate beneficiary if one were to be built.

There are many colleges in North America where the football stadium is several blocks away from the actually school itself so I don't see that a problem if the forums land location was chosen.
You could probably put a 20,000 seat stadium at SMU. Rip out the existing grassy knoll and rebuild. Wrap around ends blocking out the low rise and part of the tower. At the Gorsebrook Lounge end build an executive seating area at the top level c/w media facilities. This would be connected to the Gorsebrook lounge with and elevator. Of course there would be a sky Gorsebrook lounge in the executive area. Everybody can take the bus or walk to the stadium.
