But there's no conspiracy against WR/Boughner and the Spits.
You don't need to be Alex Jones to figure this one out.
The host for the following year is announced before the tourney, not after. So the Spits were only defending champs at the time, not back-to-back.
Bottom line is, Melnyk either guaranteed more money (likely) or the Spits botched their bid presentation. Which could be plausible when you look at how badly they have managed their roster this season.
Love the conspiracy theory though. Good stuff.
