It doesn't matter when the fat-hater sees the fat, he/she is more than likely going to ding it all over the place. You seem to be suggesting we tell judges not to score down for the fat vein. I suggest cooks who are worried about it don't turn in the fat vein. Take the matter into your own hands.
Likewise, if you understand the makeup of a cut of meat, you might hate certain things, too. Just judge the entry. Or, if you're the cook and you're worried about judges not understanding that some little nasty bits are just part of the animal, change your turn in. Take the matter into your own hands instead of trying to convince judges that what you think is best is what they should think is best.
There are now and always have been chest-thumping, I-know-better-than-everyone jerk judges who pull the garbage you're talking about. Those people are often wrong, but no amount of lecturing on techniques, meat grades, butchering 101 or hard work is going to change the personalities of these people. And I don't believe we should risk tainting new judges when we're trying to fix the egoaiac judges. So you turn in the best entry you can and cross your fingers.
