I know that it is difficult to imagine a Sam Sloan that has some measure of respectability in the chess world but it is possible. Like Nixon’s case after Watergate, it will take awhile. What are the ingredients of a Sloan rehabilitation?
1) He’s got to dial back on chess politics. Post less on USCF Issues and more on All Things Chess.
2) Lawsuits against Polgar/Truong are popular but not against the USCF. He’s got to refrain from any more anti-USCF litigation.
3) Stay out of trouble with the law. This especially goes for child-related trouble!
This is the no-brainer stuff.
