The argument against nationality rules has always made me cringe. Basically, because a bunch of ethically-challenged rich people can attain dual citizenship, it was viewed as a rule too easily broken and therefore not needed.

When pressed, the same people will claim that this is unfair to countries/entries with less money. BS smokescreen, there are no poor players in this game, and never will be. Besides, if a relatively poorer country shows up with a better boat and/or sailors, they still have a shot at winning.

I wish we could get spirit of the rule to win the day, but that's obviously expecting too much.


Edit: Insert a tirade from Mark here, telling me to stop wishing the world was a better place, only by my definition, etc...
