[TYPO3] Is it possible? Could a BE form be defined according to a record value.

There's probably no if/else but I suppose you can list the same field 
twice in the TCA, with different conditions, once with "equals" and once 
with "does not equal".

Well, I guess this will require different approach. How about you would 
have three tables: sportsmen, sports, scores. Sporstmen form will have a 
select field which will be filled with the content of the "sports" 
table. The "scores" form will have the "sports" table as well and upon 
selection, the whole form would get modified.

But while creating a new records in the "scores" table do you actually 
need to create new sportsmen record via IRRE or just select an existing 
sportsmen record. If the latter aplies then you don't need IRRE at all.
