You can bet your last dollar had Branch taken away the 2010 banner that this wouldn't have ended as nice and clean as it did. The league didn't want to go through the appeal process for a reason. Even had the board up held the decision in the proceedings to do so the biggest can a worms the world has ever seen would have been opened.

The buying of championship argument is bs any way. Shawinigan payed off a group of the CHL fat heads that paved the way for a Memorial Cup title just as another team will do this year and the years after that.
