Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!
While I believe that the ACBL has made much progress, no one is trying to claim that it is perfect (to the best of my knowledge . . . ). Another question that occurs to me (belatedly) has to do with the voting to elect WBF officers (subquestion -- is it the ACBL or the ...
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!
Thank you, Andy, for your very helpful comments. Note: I now have read above apology, so also amended my comments.
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
I understand. The 2,000 Swiss francs is what was awarded to them towards their legal fees.
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
So, Nick -- are you saying that the 80/20 split for arbitration costs -- of which the EBL has to pay the 80% --does not include the legal costs? Okay, now I think I see -- it says that the CAS Court Office will calculate the costs of the arbitration and notify ...

Would you call for the director?
South opened in third seat. North made a judgement call. When South bid freely again, North used that information to make another judgement call. Just one person's opinion!
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
As a practical matter, I truly hope that word will be forthcoming very soon, one way or another, as to whether F and N will be permitted to play in Orlando in September or not. With all of this mess that has been created, it seems to me that the ...
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
Hi Art, I respectfully disagree that these discussions are merely whining, and that they are irrelevant. There are some decisions to be made. For example, as a member of the USBF (which I respect highly), I received an email yesterday about a special experimental event at clubs that is happening ...
