Exactly CG. I'm not saying Windsor won't ice a competative team..or wouldn't be a great host..I'm merely stating you don't reward wrong doing without it being looked at negatively. To use a parenting analogy...it would be like catching your kid stealing cookies from the cookie jar when you said no...and then giving them milk and cookies as punishment.

SN..
If Windsor is awarded the 2014 Memorial Cup hosting rights...nobody can look at me straight faced and say the media wouldn't put a negative spin on it. That's not how journalism works.
