(Anti-trust legalities aside) Wouldn't this just open the door for other promoters to just say to the top players, "Those guys don't want you in their event come play in ours". Telling a top player that you're not playing next year because you missed this year is pretty much cutting off your nose to spite your face. Most businesses don't do that. My guess is that if BB fails life in the pool world will be business as usual.
I agree with the nose/face thing. My example is based on people getting pissed off. When people are angry or feel threatened noses and faces can become separated.
As stated before I think its a bad idea.
