If the OHL wants to be a credible league they need to make it clear what a punishment is for certain violations. Tough to have credibility when there's zero transparency. They don't care about credibility in the eyes of fans or public only if they continue feed players to the AHL and NHL.
At the time of the sanctions I had heard that the appeal was going to be that the Spits weren't advised that they were under investigation. I was told that this was a part of the rules set down by the governors to help clean up the under the table deals.. Once the sanctions were reduced I assumed
that was the reason. Now looking at what's being said I wonder if the Spits came to some kind of arrangement
for future considerations
...if we get to host the Memorial Cup I'll wonder if that was part of the settlement.
