The boycott was formal. It was real. I know a lot of people who participated in it--real people with real names who used to bet real money on SA. And Miff is exactly right about the Clueless Clown stuff.
By the way, if you want to hear an interesting interview, go to Steve Byk's radio show of 12-24-2010 (available in the At The Races archives, third hour) and listen to Byk interview Ric Hammerle just before the SA meet began. Quite an attitude on display in this interview. There's talk (from Byk) of the need to "rally around this" [return to real dirt, with takeout increase] and the need to "encourage what has transpired." There's also some laughter about the boycott.
The entire interview is overflowing with optimism about the meet. Of course the interview took place before the meet began.
