Story is, the WG and BO Trophy are NOT the ultimate prize.
Not unlike the Wales Trophy and Campbell Bowl, teams should not, do not, and should not parade around the arena with, unless they feel it's the ultimate prize. Hence, ID's and Missy did not and will not advance, bc in their minds they are complete.

If you don't believe in that, then, the West continues to outshine the East.

Saw a tweet saying Branch is gong to change the PO format next year.
Erie would win anyways if they paraded like Missy did so it doesn't matter. As for the tweet do you have proof to show us?

I think winning a championship has more to do with talent, preparation and execution - not a superstition. To be perfectly honest, the whole idea of "no touch" is quite ridiculous!

The London Knights get hard done by and a playoff system that was set up to feature conference rivals and proximity has to be eliminated to accommodate them?

“London Knights path to the Memorial Cup was too tough….waa waa…” SO WHAT!

The Memorial Cup host got knockout of the first round of the playoffs – who’s fault is that? London! If London would take their turn at the bottom of the standing - none of this would even be an issue. There is a good idea for Branch - instead of wasting his time trying to change the playoff format, why doesn’t he find out why London is never at the bottom of the standing like the rest of the teams in his league!

If Branch accommodates the London Knights and changes the playoff format, this will only be another example of his total disregard for every other team in the OHL except his personal cash cow - London.

Leagues, conferences, divisional and team strengths in sports are cyclical (except for a certain Junior A hockey team were cyclical is the norm). For years, MLB teams in the AL East complained the division was too difficult – the commission didn’t change it. Eventually, teams other than the Yankees and Red Sox began to win it. Look back at the NHL Western Conference – it was once so much stronger than the East. Did Bettman change it to a 1-16 format to accommodate the West? No!!! Eventually, the teams in the East became at par with West. Have you looked at the difference between the NBA West and the East? Are they considering changing the NBA playoffs to a 1-16 format? No!!!

So here we are, the 3 major sports all have been – or face a similar situation to the current balance of the OHL – and no changes made there! However, because London was directly affected by the current discrepancy in conference strength – Branch is talking about change? Really? What a joke that will be if Branch actually does it. Just another black eye to this league - thanks to the cry baby London Knights! So pathetic!!!

See stinky, listen to Neate Sager - a sensible guy!

"Of all the playoff hockey tropes, the superstition that a conference championship trophy should be treated like a door prize has to be the silliest.

At worst, it amounts to trying to dictate other human beings’ emotions. At best, it’s a stale joke."
