I just think having 2 or 3 teams having a chance to win the bid because of wealth is just bad for the league. Imagine how teams and fans in OS, Erie or other small teams feel?
Does this mean the league should bring in a certain time frame between winning the bid and the next time they can bid?
I personally wouldn't want that but this may bring about such a rule.
Those are questions that we all may have different answers to but no one will be wrong.

Too bad having a host team and host city is one and same.
I agree, it would be best to spread it around, as much as possible. If there are any credible bids le tthem have it, no worries here.
I was responding as much for the pompous jerks comment. I feel MArk if bidding has to put his best foot forward is all. Is that pompous/ Not sure
Im not sure it was garaunteed money from London that caused Guelph to bail. As eluded to in the article Razor poated- other reasons-internal with OHL. Im still thinking they bailed because its a forgone conclusion barring anything unforeseen at this point. And not neccessarily for London Well see how it plays out.
