They take money from Australian youngsters so that Stakhovsky could finally buy himself a Ferrari? Smart move.
Back to the topic : it's a caricatural but fair description imo.
If Stakhovsky buys a bigger flat in Kiev rather than a Ferrari, I don't think it's that important
Top-100 players used the argument that other federations are not that rich, OK, but as long as the other federations don't get more money thanks to the top-100 players' demands, basically it's what AnnaK said, the argument is purely self-serving.
