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.
Exactly what I am pointing at. Who would want to bid in the OHL for future Memorial Cups if it is all big market teams. OHL will be losing out on a lot of money if that is the case.
