Well you weren't listening. And the company line then was Mississauga won the bid because they wanted to use it to build up a fanbase in the GTA. Well, London has no fanbase building necessary - so now Branch will come up with some other BS reasoning to hide the fact that it's for sale - money being spent is a-ok as long as it's going into his/leagues pocket.

Funny how Melynuk bails out of the league the year after hosting - great job host selection committee, give the man money on his way out the door rather than rewarding new ownership who spent $8M (more than the team was worth) to buy the team from one of the leagues worst owners, a city who's tax payers built a $70M arena basically for the Spits, and a team who could have threepeat for the Memorial Cup.
