in those terms it sounds simple, but do not expect this ruling to set any int'l precedent. the korean court judgement is actually removing the barriers of the legal relationship between bwf and the players, which there currently is none. to that point, the korean courts have no jurisdiction... which is a whole other explanation. in short, the players need the bwf rule changed. re. the match fixing players: bwf cannot ban them, since they have no jurisdiction over them. that sounds far fetched, but it is legally valid. explaining it in terms of the usa would be easier (for me). there are 2 main separate issues which i've mentioned elsewhere: the relationship between bwf & member associations (ma) the relationship between member associations and the players a player would need to sue bwf to remove the restricted entry rule because if a usa court says usa badminton has to enter you, usa badminton can give you the lowest priority. you may miss out due to entry # caps or any other excuse they want to make. however, if bwf starts accepting independent players into their tournaments under their current rule, and requiring ma's to enter them according to ranking, they are, in essence, voiding their own entry rules via precedent. if the players can afford a long drawn out court case they would win. it would be drawn out because it would dismantle they way bwf is run... but only in their own country. players from every country would have to sue bwf. all it takes is one wealthy player from every major badminton country to affect change. it would take 20 pages to explain the legalities. not gonna happen here for free, ha!
