Yet the Hunters are jerks for submitting the highest bid? Isn't that the point? I'm sure Ottawa could guarantee more with a bigger city and arena.
Listen, I don't think London should get it, but why aren't teams like Oshawa, Kingston or even the Soo applying?
Kitchener got the hosting job through nothing but dollars, huh? Right...

I wish Oshawa and/or Kingston had bid, but they obviously felt they weren't in a position to ice a competitive team (which is legit in Oshawa with the players they'll graduate) or to present a competitive bid.

Smaller centres in the Q and W are awarded the hosting duties, and I'd bet they're not guaranteeing the massive returns the OHL does. If London gets the Memorial Cup in 2014, we might as well make hotel arrangements for Ottawa in 2017 and London again in 2020. They'll be the only two places that are deemed acceptable by the effed up OHL.
