Once Bill Goichberg posts something on the home page of the USCF
website, it becomes a fait accompli. There is almost nothing we can do
about it. We certainly cannot take it off the website. Only Bill can
do that.

This keeps happening. In October, 2006, Bill Goichberg posted a list
of qualifying tournaments to the US Championship without board
approval.

Then, on December 27, 2006, Bill Goichberg posted a long list of
players who had qualified to the US Championship not only without
board approval but also in the face of a deadline the board had given
him to secure a sponsorship deal by December 31, 2006. Bill did not
make the deadline.

So, in short, Bill Goichberg told 28 players that they had qualified
to the US Championship even though he had secured no sponsorship and
had no money to hold the tournament.

In short, there is simply nothing, nothing the board can do to stop
this, short of removing Bill Goichberg as president altogether, which
we have not been able to do because there is no agreement as to a
replacement.

Yes. Board members have objected.

Nobody on the board, with the exception of Randy Hough, is entirely
happy with this situation.
