There is just a real stink over this like Branch playing favorites for his own league and trying to bend rules to suit his league at the expense of the others.
Well I'm wondering if this will be handled through some sort of arbitration, although I've never heard anything prior to this re: the CHL playing favorites with one league over another.
I can't get the picture out of my mind of a bunch of guys standing around in the CHL offices telling Chiefs Mgmt. "hey we didn't know you had him listed, and now that there's been a public announcement......better luck next time!"
