I think the KCBS and MMA need to take a serious look at where they are heading. When they bring on a direct sponsor rather than a sponsor for a particular thing (Like the BBQ road show) they are setting themselves up for some serious conflicts and possible issues with individual contests.
Ok, so now we have an official potato sponsor. What happens if a contest in Iowa has had a potato grower as a major sponsor for several years. Will they have to not be a sponsor because KCBS already has one.
Same thing applies to a soda company. What if Coca Cola is sponsoring a contest.
The whole Sam's thing is bad enough, now they are stepping over the line. I thought there was a lawyer on the board who could see conflicts like these.
And yes if they make Potato salad count towards Grands then they have jumped the shark for sure.
