Is Bridge a sport ? The F-N case.
I wouldn't call Don's approach "isolationist." He's not saying that he doesn't want bridge players from around the world to get together. And, in the F/N case, I think that the bridge organizations have made much better decisions than the CAS. It is important, of ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
If the corruption in the WBF and the EBL is deep-rooted, is there anything to be done? How can we put ethics and having a clean game at the top of the priority list (rather than trying to fit bridge into the Olympics movement as being more important than anything ...
Is Bridge a sport ? The F-N case.
Perhaps financial costs, as well as benefits, should be considered. For example, the F/N case before the CAS not only cost time and money; in addition, the EBL has to pay 80% of total court costs, including F/N’s. And the EBL has to pay them 2,000 ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Did the EBL just decide in 2016 to yoke itself more closely to the IOC movement and thereby subject itself to the CAS review? Anyway, I'm going to stop focusing on the EBL -- not really my issues, as I am not a European player.
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
It would appear (from looking at the EBL website) that the head of the Monaco bridge federation is also on the Ethics/Credentials committee of the EBL.
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I would like to add, that it has been brought to my attention that M. Meyer posted (I believe) as a member of relevant committees of the European Bridge League (EBL). And, my comments related to the hope (which seems to be shared by many duplicate bridge players in various ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Thank you very much for providing this honest feedback about some things that went wrong with this CAS case. However, I would like to add, that I think that many bridge players hope that there will be a major, overarching evaluation of whether or not involvement in the Olympic effort ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Thank you, Maurizio, for your thoughtful reply. I had not thought of the point that F and N could be in good standing with the Monaco bridge federation. Also, someone pointed out to me that the world championships in Orlando may have an ACBL sanction/approval as well (as being ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
So -- this question is for Maurizio Sacco or anyone else knowledgeable about this -- is it then correct that F and N are not in good standing with their national bridge organization, and will not have a chance before December 2018 to try to change that? In other words, can we ...
Poll on the World Bridge Federation's involvement with the Olympic movement
Currently, the results of this informal poll show that 87% of those who took a position oppose WBF involvement, while 6% support it. I think that it is also worth noting that, while 23% have moved from support to opposition, not a single voter has recorded that (s)he has ...
