I completely agree with you TCG!
Most of the chess professionals including me are leaving professional chess, looking for other jobs. The situation is super critical and so sad mainly because the great potential of CHESS was hardly ever used.
But there are still so many GMs that look for 'JUSTICE'. With all the respect to GM Rogers, come on! It is really amazing and so childish. There is no point to laugh, but it is more logical to cry I guess.
Kramnik, Topalov, Anand and friends have no problems with good invitations and making money, but what about the rest of the GMs? Many of them where not less talented, but didn't get so far and so now they are forced to change profession. Big 'JUSTICE'!
Instead to 'grow up', as you correctly say, and to open the mind, to find new ways to make chess more attractive, to get more sponsorships and more of the public in; instead to work for a better future for more professionals who dedicated almost all their lives for chess but didn't get to the top.
Most grandmasters are still living in dreamland searching for JUSTICE. Come on! What is JUSTICE in chess? That a GM rated 2650 can hardly survive the month while a ranked number 300 in the world in tennis is living as King!? Does the more clever person always win the game? Does the one who play all the games well but lost due to his nerves and blundered deserve to lose?
OK, this is a subject for discussion but a result is a result and MUTUAL RESPECT and GOOD EDUCATION are basic for all of us. It's clear that Irina Krush proved to be a bad loser and this is another proof of the need for more articles like yours to open the mind of chess pros and in any case case, of course, behaving well during and after a game is a great idea and could help for many chess lovers.
I will even consider it as a subject for lecture in my chess academy. Irina is invited! :-))
I should mention that our friend GM Kogan runs a chess training academy in Spain. He and fellow GM Alexander Delchev call themselves the Masters of Olala Chess. That's right, Olala Chess, meaning "new perspective based on a POSITIVE WAY OF THINKING ABOUT CHESS that search for harmony, and the search of pleasure in our games!"
