Doesn't surprise me in the slightest. I have never believed that any team owner was pure in the recruitment process. The rules are much too loose when Anthony Stranges becomes a Knight and a certain IceDogs' parent becomes a scout. I am betting (and this is just my opinion not based on any facts or inside knowledge) that there will be an appeal, and a for sale sign on the franchise. To me, this explains the urgency to go all in this year and if it doesn't pan out they can move on to other ventures. This doesn't scare me, it is a profitable team and another owner will be fairly easy to find, leaving the Burke family with a well deserved profit.

Pretty sure we know who will be thrown under the bus for this and their first name won’t start with Burke.

Wonder if that is why Marty hasn’t resurfaced in the OHL?

I know he had health reasons but I wonder if this is something contributing to it

Yes the funny thing is we haven’t really recruited any big names unless you are talking about Liam Ham lol

Wonder if they were trying to get Norris or Frederic to magically appear back in 2016?

Although not sure Norris was property then .


What a debacle


How does London get away with this for all these years lol


Incredible development ...

Maybe this explains the ‘inflation’ we are seeing in the price of the round three and four tickets

so it happened years ago and has nothing to do with current staff or players....hmmm, our current gm has been watching too much cnn and trump stories, who owned the team in 2016, who was assistant gm in 2016, who was an assistant coach in 2016., this never came up at family dinners? really?
it is what it is, fans always have a choice and if I was a betting person, the burkes will divest the near future, the monetary penalty will not scare a new owner as it will be reflected In the purchase price, the draft picks will hurt for a year or two but if trading current assets for multiple 2nd round picks is just as valuable as one first round pick....a team is built around many not one
