I love the AO but the article does make a point why it'd be boycotted. It's just in the weakest position .

This is the most likely scenario IMHO.

The journalist in question travels the tour and probably does have some very good connections.

Regardless of that though I'm pretty sure it's a sensationalist articulation of the worst case scenario.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
