Maybe but as I said earlier it is not my sense so far.
Not sure it's mine either. Is the chess world any different in that regard to anywhere else, though?
I mean if i was to phone up Lords tomorrow and tell them,
"look, I want do something really tasteless like land a flapping great helicopter on the outfield, flash loads of cash, organise some tossy cricket matches and, by the by, grope a few of the players' wives while I'm at it"

of cash, you say?"
Quicker than you could say "Stanford's in prison now"
