The 'Gong's chess strongman, Matthew Sweeney, is in big trouble. The NSWCA Council is considering wether or not to take action against him for his alleged "breaches of discipline". These so-called breaches appear to be some of his more controversial pronouncements in his now defunct discussion board, Uber Chess Jehad (sic).
Matthew Sweeney is the organiser of the Common Man Chess tournament. He is also the most vocal supporter of a NSW Chess Centre.
For all his faults - rude, crude, and abrasive style - here's hoping that Mr Sweeney will survive this witch-hunt.
