Monaco Decline 2014 EBL Gold Medal!
Pierre, In the US, we have an organization called the National Rifle Association. They don't get to make any decisions relating to gun legislation, they are not even a board member of the federation, er - I mean the government. Luckily in bridge, bad legislation only results in people getting ...
In the Well: Mikael and Ola Rimstedt
Hi Mikael and Ola, Congrats on all of your successes so far, and also in advance for the many that are sure to come in the future. You guys are awesome!
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Jeannie, I never knew that about Carl Lewis, but that wasn't the reason behind my post. The point was to show that even the IOC has officially removed the names of convicted cheaters from the list of medal winners. If they can do that, surely the ACBL (and hopefully ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
I hate to gang up, but while not being an expert on steroids, I'm pretty sure its use was rampant in baseball and other sports for a long time, and more importantly, using them did not come close to guaranteeing victory for your team. Secondly, your assumption that an ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy

Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Bob, At each NABC, the bulletin proudly publishes the names of previous winners. I don't understand why you, or anyone would like to continue publishing the names of cheaters as winners several times each year. What has that got to do with bridge? Can't the awards and whatever ...

Randy, You wrote: "What about teammates of others well known American professional players why haven't they denounced even if the sponsor hasn't. Show me one pro player who has publicly asked the ACBL to remove masterpoints they won well playing on a team later to have found out ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Has the BoD even purged any results at all, even those in the 4 years prior to their statement? I checked the ACBL website, and the winner of almost every main event remains listed as tainted pairs.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
I admire the great job the ACBL has done with respect to protecting our game and I hope they can continue to show the world how a federation should deal with cheaters. As one of the players that will lose some important titles if the above proposals are enacted, I ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
It's true Monaco "won" the gold with FN, but they later withdrew from the Bermuda Bowl. Poland "won" the bronze with BZ, then used their qualification to compete and "win" the Bermuda Bowl. Which is worse?
