The local factor will play in case of 3rd/4th liners where they will select local instead of long shots.
This is a marketing decision more or less and the examples you give were simply poor scouting and drafting decisions, not local factor in play.
have your opinion, that's fine - but those picks, especially Hornbrook and Jones were completely dictated by the "local factor".
Unless the head scout at the time and coaches were lying to me, that had everything to do with it. Also factor in that one of those players - his parents had a significant financial investement in the team make your own conclusion.
