I honestly thought that Fulcher was interfered with on the third goal but the refs obviously did not agree with me. They played very well and did not let the OHL down. Never mind we will hopefully make amends next year when we all go to Halifax with the Ice Dogs. Go Dogs Go !!!!

The fees shot way up for the 100th Memorial Cup (3.65 million) - but it seems odd that the cost for hosting the Mem-Cup is going back down for Halifax and than back up for the OHL?

Semple said that Halifax is able to afford selling its tickets at a significantly lower price due to the fact that theyíre paying less than half the hosting fee than Regina and have twice as many seats at Scotiabank Centre.

If this is in fact the case, no doubt the price point was set to coincide with what only the London Knights can afford. It will be no surprise when London is announced as the host of the 2020 Memorial Cup.

I felt like it was a 50-50 call if heís set in the blue paint thatís probably interference but he canít be going out for a puck and turning over that play reminded of another goalie we know who loves to turn it over when he plays the puck anyone know who that is? Lol congrats to the bulldogs on an amazing year though

Hosting fees might not be that high again after this year but it wouldnít surprise me CHL only really cares about one thing $$$$ and even if cost of hosting isnít that high Iíd expect tickets will be for teams with smaller buildings (under 7000)

If local tax payers have to cover any losses. I don't want it here.

It is just like how they ruined the World Juniors with high ticket prices. I can't believe these people who run these things think it looks good to have a sea of empty seats for supposed top notch junior hockey. It greatly hurts "the brand" in my opinion.

These are television events. They need to realize they are in entertainment business.

After Halifax, the WHL is the host again.

In that case, it makes this story of a 3.65 million price tag for an Ontario team (in 2 years) even more ridiculous. One would have to believe that there is no truth to this story that the price of hosting a future Memorial Cup will be the same as what Regina paid.
