They should've left with their heads held high. They built a beautiful barn, brought the region together in support of one team, contributed to many charities.

Instead, they leave with their tails between their legs.

What a difference a year or two makes.

Bill and Denise have nothing to fear, I actually suspect they might stay and continue to contribute. As for the other two... yeah.

Read too much into the sale.

If the speculation is correct that the team cost north of $20M, and there is still 12 years left in the Meridian Centre lease, and that Niagara (as in fans in Niagara) are fourth highest in attendance... the team will be right here for a good many years.

I really hope you are correct NiceDawg. My gut agrees with you but I am still very nervous until we hear from the new owner.

It's a pure business decision. If he wanted to relocate, he'd buy and re-brand Mississauga. He wants to make money and figures he can do it here.

More logic!!!

Still a little nervous.


Hope they read this message board and realize that there is some concern amongst the hard core fans. Then issue a statement of some sort. Hard to sell season tickets given this news.

I would like to thank the Burkes for bringing the OHL back to Niagara and good luck in their future.
