This is what I fear if BAM wants to show who is 'boss'. If BAM decides on the INA model, i.e. allow players like TH to turn professional and yet eligible to represent INA in SS and international tournaments, then LCW's livelihood will not be affected. Of course TH is special and has powerful supporters and admirers. Can we say the same of LCW? If BAM acts like LYB, then both MS and LCW will have no chance to survive as well as they did in the past, I'm afraid. I think LCW can go independent, even without MS, provided he has good sparring partners. The recent SS Masters Final has proven that he can beat all his opponents (when LD is not present) even without MS by his side.
