The CWHL if you read the article are acting just like the group that they are affiliated with OWHA......bullies.
Why is the OWHA involved....well it is all about control.....they really believe that they are the governing body of all female hockey in Canada......they are still pissed that the Esso cup was turned into a midget championship.
They allow the CWHL free office space as well as all the perks that come along with this.....
It should be interesting when Hockey Canada rules that the Minnesota White Caps are allowed into the Clarkson Cup.
What other choices are there......they were part of this before and nothing has changed to prevent them from entry again....other then the fact that they are not willing to give the league $200,000 that was the entry fee, the same fee they quoted a team from Regina. Just where would the money go to or who?
OWHA get out of this as it is not within your mandate......also approve the application of a new team at the AAA level as it is not within your rights to deny this......any and all monies it cost you to defend this action should it go further needs to come from the directors personally as the members of the OWHA have no concerns about AAA senior hockey.
Play hard, play fair
