Eishockey Manager German

I have some questions about this game.
I am again confused after checking TOSEC sets and comparing this sets with
the IPF release.
I am not a cracker/coder, so i am asking, who is wrong?
I am nearly sure there is no physical protection on IPF release, because i am able to convert IPF to ADF without any error message.

Eishockey Manager v1.00 (1993-04-12)(Software 2000)(DE)[cr DCD] ADF
compared against
Eishockey Manager v1.00 (1993-04-12)(Software 2000)(DE)[2062] IPF

There is no difference, except the crackintro, the main executable is exactly the same (crc32), also all other files(crc32)
"Decade" claims this release as cracked.
So my question, is it possible that the crackintro includes some code, which makes the game cracked, if i would remove the crackintro the game isnt cracked anymore.
I have also compared with "TRSI" release/crack and there has the main executable different crc32(maybe removed manual check or similar)

Maybe some coders or former crackers can help or give some general info.

The Decade version is not cracked since they apparently missed the manual protecion that only appears sometimes when starting the game (same problem with Bundesliga Manager Pro/Hattrick which were "cracked" as well). The TRSI version is fine.

....but "Decade" claims this release as cracked.
Either they lied or someone has removed the cracked executable and moved the original uncracked to disk.

I just had a look again as I'm in the process of creating a WHDLoad slave for this very game. Decade version is not cracked as already said despite the crack intro claiming otherwise. However, the TRSI version is not properly cracked either! Saito removed the call to the protection that appears when you start the game, there are more checks later in the game though!

So as far as I can see there is no 100% version of this game, the WHDLoad version will fix that.

Edit: Might be possible that the TRSI version is fine! It looks like the result of the later protection checks is not checked anywhere. Will do some more checks later.
