Gnomes*

Our spies, who are everywhere, inform us there is a quiet meeting going on somewhere in Switzerland of many, many CAS arbitrators, perhaps discussing selection of their next leader. There's no word on the TAS/CAS website.

Or, it may be a gathering of the Illuminati.

Nothing to see, move along.

It would be nice if it was a gathering of the Illuminati -- they being advocates of the Enlightment, reason and all that good stuff.

how about the title of "President, Prophet, and Seer"? You know, if you can stick your head into a hat and read some gold plates that only you can see, then you are a Seer.

President, Prophet, and Seer

CAS is trying to lure Officer Barbrady away from South Park?

Nothing to see here. Move along now.

Hopefully they don’t get Cartman in a package deal. If Cartman gets deputized, he will teach someone to respect his authoritI.

Then again, that would be more appropriate for WADA.

The TAS/CAS Website has a very short blurb about electing its new President:


PRESS RELEASE
International Council of Arbitrationfor Sport (ICAS) Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

The election of the ICAS/CAS President will take place on 3 April 2008

Lausanne, 6 February 2007 – During its meeting of 5 February 2008, the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS) fixed the date for the election of the ICAS/CAS President on 3 April 2008. The election will take place in Monaco. The list of candidates for the presidency will be known approximately four weeks prior to the election date. The next President of ICAS/CAS will have to be chosen from the 19 current ICAS members.

In his capacity of First ICAS Vice President, Mr Mino Auletta (Italy) has been acting as ICAS/CAS President ad interim since the death of Judge K├ęba Mbaye on 11 January 2007 who had presided over the CAS since its creation in 1984.
