    OJ you wonder why Seiken or if it actually is Seiken , fires back with comments ?because its Goldstein who instigates all the trouble and stirs the pot

    Seiken is retired but it seems like Shorstein is itching to get back in

    Funny How Larel Marie Mele finished dead last yet no bashing of her? It’s only if Seiken finished last that the predictable comments from a few losers seem to take center stage. Yet the fact that he wasn’t there drives the haters crazy so they have to come up with something

    Midget Shortstein would probably finish right around where Wild Bill did barely fighting it out with Jeff Diamond for 10th . What a lousy shitty eater he was 9.5 hot dogs not even close to Seiken 11

    Dietz and Larell had 4 each. The guy with 5 is named Jack Diamond.

    Everyone respects Larell. The problem is that Seiken has lost piece by piece the respect of peers, in person. on his site. on here as suspect. That’s too bad because he could have gone the other way and built his reputation even without being a great eater or even good eater or even a table ender in MLE.

    But how about two amateurs beating top-30 pros

    Good point or maybe he rather drive 1hr to Harrahs Casino in Phila yesterday and pick up the same amt of cash (which he did ) as the 3rd place finisher in the spedies contest without damaging his intestines . I think thats a bit more practical isn’t it?

    What was the point of eaters that finished 6-12 even showing up? Love of the sport or a six hr drive or even longer for a free meal? Stupid if you ask me

    I hear that next year Tioga downs will expand to live gaming tables black jack poker roulette along with the video slots so Serken can play all the poker he wants after the contest

    The respect of peers in person? Says who? Says you ? An anonymous terd thats not man enough to post his real name yet wants to draw false conclusion about someone without proof to back up his words? Seiken gets along with everyone whether it be at contests or in person. The only problem is right here on eatfeces.com the cancer of all cancers to the sport.which provides the only voice to the shitsteins and maybe one or two other trolls

    I think Juan showed up only because he wanted to meet Seiken for the first time and shake the hand of a legend

    I for one am glad that Joey won . Last year contest he was under pressure due to the wedding arrangements. Now there are no wedding arrangements and he can just concentrate on eating Who needs a wife? Fuck it

    anonymous @ 9:57 pm has no idea what they are talking about, only saying that because his wife smartened up and left him. anonymous @ 9:57 pm doesn’t get laid either.

    anonymous @ 9:55 pm no one wants to shake the handy of a legendary loser.

    Giving Mr Goldstein the benefit of the doubt, Not Allen could be Juan or Joey as the bluff catcher but i am putting the smart money on it being a Goldstein Always go with your initial instincts and with that said, you my friend are a loser

    Yes from what i heard Juan did show up hoping Seiken would be there . If he could not meet Dale Boone his idol, then i guess Seiken would be considered second best
