But this year because it was never close (it really wasn't), they 'had' to choose London. If I was a Guelph fan I would be furious that the powers that be didn't even try to get in on it. Can you imagine the world we would live in if all the 'smaller' entities said, "oh im not going to try because they look bigger and stronger". Weak excuses.
Again, I ask how do you know it wasn't close? Is it based solely on the returning roster? If it is, do you not think that Barrie, while returning a significant number of players, would be saying that all draft picks for the next 3 or 4 years are up for grabs to go all out at home? And if every year the projected roster is the criteria that trumps all others, than say it.
