Are FIFA nuts???

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/internationals/4503612.stm

The BBC are reporting that players selected for their nation's World Cup squads won't be eligible to play for their clubs after May 15th – ruling them out of the Champions League Final. Are they nuts, or just incompetent?

[edit] It appears that they are merely nuts, and not, as I previously inferred, incompetent. They have made an exception for the Champions League Final, but are intent on screwing over any Football League clubs in the Play-Offs that have players at the World Cup.
