When the study was first announced earlier this year, one of the main points of interest had to deal with money taken in by the OSSAA during postseason games. That seemed to be at the heart of the proceedings.
“If you don’t have playoffs, there is no voluntary (reason to) belong to the OSSAA,” Blackwell said. “You play sports, and you play it for one reason: to win. So the fact you control the playoff system means you control the membership. With that, this interim study is concluded.”
