Provincials is all ontarios..as in teams representing all areas of ontario. Etobicoke had playdowns with the 4 other teams in their area..and were unsuccessful..so suck it up and get over the fact that you didnt make it, and so what if u came in first in the west...thats no reason to allow you into the provincials..as far as im concerned etobicoke, throughout the whole season has displayed some of the worst sportsmanship ive ever seen, all that they seem to do is complain whine about their own faults and failures as a team, when really, no one wants to hear from you any more...half of this site is about etobicoke and their pathetic complaints abotu other teams, the league, refs, schedules, etc. If they have so much to complain about, and they way the league runs bugs them so much, then next year go and play some where else because im positive no one will miss you. You create problems and controversy for no reason. and as for the teams that dont have to play a qualifier, this is because of their region, most likely because the team they have to play doesnt have a double A team, and this is most likely becasue that area has a miniscule population compared to the densly populated areas of the GTA, where there are more teams but also a lot more hockey talent centered in these areas. Etobicoke needs to grow up and accept their unacceptance to the provincials.
