Sometimes the two come together, just yesterday in this judgment in an injunction proceeding initiated by Johan Cruyff and 1o-odd Ajax trainers/former football players against Ajax - a listed company - and its supervisory board.
Although Cruyff cs claimed victory after the judge had spoken, even moderately close reading of the judgment clarifies that Cruyff cs lost on most grounds; the only upside was that the judge basically created a status quo for the coming period, in order for Ajax' general meeting to decide whether to choose in favor of either the Cruyff scenario (and against the supervisory directors) or the Van Gaal scenario. I write either/or, as both scenario's as to Ajax' future football-wise seem to be incompatible - or so the experts say.
Anyway, I'm amazed that so far no corporate law enthusiast has penned a column in some fancy magazine about this whole corporate governance drama. It won't be me, as I cheer for - you guessed it - Feyenoord. Crank up the volume!
