The Whole Story
There was none. It's an analogy, given that appeals committees could be deciding the winners of national championships.
The Whole Story
The "Oh, Shit" case was decided by about 20 people, not the usual 5. I was scheduled to be one of them until I recused myself. However, I have heard from some involved that the size of the committee caused procedural difficulties.
TD calls and 'failure to play bridge / subsequent or consequent?
