have judged over 50 events. I cannot say I have EVER seen a judge get up from a table and leave to go smoke a cigarette. If they did I would have an issue with it from the smell on them when they came back to the table. So smoking to me as an issue is grasping at straws. Does it happen? I've never seen it.
Teams do spend a lot of money. But for some, judges spend as much if not more then some teams over a years time for travel, hotels, meals, airfare. It all adds up in the end. The ONLY difference is a team does have the chance to win some money back. And BOTH judges and teams have the right to choose to spend how much they wish to spend. You don't like how much money you put out, its voluntary both ways on doing this what you do.
