In Reply to: Because reps would NEVER forge cards.... posted by DawgPhan on June 29, 2012 at 07:41:48:
You know -- it's not a bad thing for people to be friends. Barbeque is supposed to be fun for all. Whether cook, judge, organizer and/or rep, we each have a function at any particular event and friendship should not corrupt the job each does. The reps I know truly strive to be fair to all. If a cook or team truly feels that way, have they told the organizer? Do they fill in a contest critique sheet?
Personally, I feel that teams can influence organizers a great deal. After all, teams spend hard money to compete at events. I guarantee that I shop contests for many criteria, reps officiating is one of those.
It's pretty easy to gripe in an place like this. There are ways to make views known so that improvements are made.
