Also, who know what kind of team the 3 bidders will have. Lots can happen in the off season.
There's a reason why you don't see teams like the Soo, Sarnia, Guelph(declined this year), Brampton, Kingston etc. don't bid. Even Guelph said one of the reasons they declined is it's gotten too big. A lot of London fans would obviously be happy if they got the Memorial Cup but it would be the death knell of the bidding process for when it comes up to be the OHL's turn again.
