What people are told will or wonít happen and what actually happens are two very different things and they almost never line up. So while Branch is saying that the sanctions will have no effect on Windsorís bid, I have to imagine that couldnít be farther from the truth. The reality is it would be a complete joke if Windsor was awarded the 2014 Memorial cup. Just a straight up, really bad joke. Will they have the team? Maybe. Do they have the arena? Definitely. Can they promise a good monetary return? Probably. Would it be a huge embarrassment for the league if they get the bid? Absolutely! And I think that is the one thing that trumps all of the other factors that work in Windsorís favor.
