Chris, the professional associations are just as much to blame for this debacle by allowing it to happen for so many years and accepting bribe sponsorship money at the same time.

Whether the associations knew it or not at the time, the sponsorship funds were more of a pay off to turn a blind eye and pave the road for the future to where we are today.

Now the associations bit the hand that fed them, and tried to take them to court, which is even more ludicrous. The lawyers on both sides have to be laughing their asses off on this one - do I want my new yacht in white or beige?
