Pretty good read on the situation, Coach.
From the sentiment i was hearing, i thought it might pass by a slim margin. But i'm not surprised it didn't. Seems to me that Saskatoon made a pretty rational choice: choosing less cost and time commitments in a system that isn't broken (i.e., a competitive league that produces elite players) instead of pursuing the Holy Grail of getting stomped on by BC and Alberta at Westerns.

As for the disdain towards Stoon for not joining the league i don't quite understand it. The only reason to join would be so they can participate in provincials but under the current format it is unlikely that any Stoon team will win. On the flip side there are multiple reasons for them not to join the league. Travel, cost, development, time commitment, etc.
