Where should they put the video scoreboard?

There's controversy here in Ottawa about where to place the videoboard for the Ottawa Renegades. From CBC News:
Some residents of the Glebe are hoping to sack the Ottawa Renegades' attempt to adapt a large video billboard at Frank Clair Stadium so it can be used advertise on Bank Street when not in use for a game. The club says it needs to move the 46-foot billboard from the east end zone to the west, because during the many games played as the sun sets, it's difficult for most fans to see. However, it also wants permission from the city to rotate the billboard on non-game days so advertising messages could be seen on Bank Street.
