Thank you for writing this story.
It would be more heartbreaking if Bienemy is my son , brother, or spouse. I guess he works so hard and helps his team and the sport.
We all make mistakes. I understand, it's a business decision that work for the team. Many years ago, I had an experience that I was hired as a management staff with less qualification and experience, but with an excellent leadership skills
Today, I think, a decade old legal problem of Bienemy may not be the main issue, but who drives the bottom line--money.
This may be the best thing for Bienemy to throw his net to a big ocean. Who knows, when one door closes, another open or you build your door.
A great story!
