There is little or no good that can come out of this situation. Best case scenario:

1. The various suits and counter suits tie up the USCF for years and bankrupts it.
2. In the wake of the collapse of the USCF a new organization which is legally independent take over the few assest: rating systems, running of national events, etc.
3. We start anew ...

--What new organization?

Yes, what new organization and who would be running it?

Did you know the USCF was founded in 1939, and it has promoted chess for almost seventy years?

Isn't there an organization called NACA? Maybe they'd be the independent organization. If not, maybe the Canadian Chess Federation could take over.

That explains it: Senility is setting in.

If they've had seventy years to promote chess, they haven't done a very good job have they?

Where are the sponsors? Where are the big-money events on TV? Where are all those American top-10 players?

Nowhere, that's where.

The USCF is a bunch of infighting amateurs (at both chess and business) that can't get anything done.

Feh.
