I know people will have strong views on this, but I do think there's a discussion worth having underneath that.
My personal view is that they probably took some chances on the way up, which is fair enough, and were allowed to. And now they're up at the top, they might see a little more in the way of regulatory zeal. No sympathy or blind eyes to be had now, but they've earned that position, and should be proud of the scrutiny.
Just my guess. I don't know enough to do more than that. What do you think?
*I'm just trying to avoid the use of 'legal', 'ethical', and related words, not invoking the 'spirit of the law' or the sporting regulations. Perhaps 'because it's a bad idea' covers it.
