    After doing the podcast for less than a year , the Shea’s nominate one of the Fink brothers as a back up MC. No such offer was ever made to Seiken when he gave years of sweat and blood putting together a website and internet show at a time when you were forced to use 3rd party servers to upload the show. Bunch of no good ungrateful assholes. The best part of the movie Hungry is at the very end putting a fake liar on the spot trying to cover his ass with a bunch of lies

    You are dead on man. Saw the flick with Shea trying to make it seem as though Kobayashi had every opportunity to face Chestnut in Coney but he failed to mention the scam contract

    You are boring, evil, like to swear too much and plain hard on the eardrums. No shit you weren’t asked to MC. The Sheas are attempting to protect their business, not destroy it by including you anymore then they had to as an eater.

    In all honesty, it’s one thing to set up a mediocre website and a Wayne’s World type internet show but I don’t think Seiken would be a good MC for an event. He lacks the energy, quick wit, ability to think on his feet as well as command of the English language to get the job done. Also, he is not liked by any of the eaters he would be introducing. Just go back and watch the bang up job he did when George Shea threw him a bone and let him do commentary for that waste of time eats of strength or maybe listen to him babble like a buffoon on that poker podcast. Just saying…

    To Seiken, if you had been perceived to be qualified to be a back-up MC or any other position in MLE, you would have been offered one. You should have stuck to blogging. Your comment shows a very mixed up idea of the way things work in this world. Your anger has never helped you. People tried to help you, yet you cast them aside. I hope you find some measure of happiness in this world.

    the thing about Fink is that they are good. the thing about seiken is he is old fat and sad. Youth > Expereince in this case, plus no one wants to see a sweat and jizz stained doo rag while watching the best eaters in the world.

    Notice how 11:06 am aka Goldstein sadly displays the hypocrite he was and always will be. He hates eats of strength because his precious bologna title went down in flames by the likes of a much more polished and better eater than he ever was , and to this day he still can’t seem to figure out that he was one of the most disliked members of mle beside Dale Boone which is why he desperately craved the friendship of Menchetti who blew him off in email as well as many others.

    1132 is a boring fat old midget who clings to his 5 fake trophies and refuses to start a FB and twitter page out of fear that others will make fun of his twopay and wrinkled aging skin

    Anyone that still hangs around that joke of an eating club ifoce is wasting their time . Poker vs comp eating is like night and day. IFOCE wishes they could get 1/900th of the publicity poker brings to the media as compared to those jokes. Hundreds of names in that venue are well known in the community . The only well known name in competitive eating is Joey Chestnut and even that took years before he became established . The name Kobayashi is more well known than Chestnut even after he lost his title. ESPN throws Sheas a 30 minute bone once a year while ESPN convinces Paul Page to make believe the hot dog contest is a real sport for 15 minutes. WSOP receives an entire month of exposure with ESPN including and leading up to the main event which pays millions and not the paltry 20k prize pool with Nathans. Really who cares how many slices of pizza or hot dogs someone can eat in 10 minutes. ? People with no life and eating disorders thats who!

    I saw eats of strength. Very poorly done with an obviously “fill in – i’ll take what I can get” audience. The best part was Seiken showing how he would eat corn on the cob like a baboon wearing that very outdated shirt.

    Only a psychopath would come on here and post 3 consecutive times @ 1:27, 1:30 & 1:57. No wonder nobody likes you. Do everyone a favor and go away.

    I thought Seiken hated Godstein? Why does he compare Godstein intensity to a dead wrestler and a former hot dog champ that could barely put away 22 hot dogs?

    Goldstein called Seiken at 2 in the morning practically in tears when informed by George Shea called him earlier in the day to inform him that Don Lerman will attempt to break his record on national tv. Rumor has it that Goldstein could not sleep for an entire week once he got the news

    It takes one to know one who has nothing better to do than count how many consecutive times someone else posts

    The comment from 651 has nothing to do with you Goldstein so why are you sticking your nose where it don’t belong? And why make accusations when they are fals?

  25. anonymous said

    January 16, 2017 @ 10:24 pm

    Did anyone notice in the eats of strength video that Goldshit looked like he was on pins and needles sitting in the crowd with his lovely wife hoping that Lerman would fall flat on his face ?

    I like the way Buck Wolf says “they call him the shredder because of his sharp pointed teeth” Buck Wolf never even heard of him until George Shea fed him the lines in the script before they taped the episode

    How are you so sure it was Seiken who posted 1:27 1:30 and 1:57? Go root your loser cuz and only friend at Wingbowl who turns 50 next year and still feels the need to stuff his face with fried shit . Everyone knows hes going to lose so why does he bother?

    Here’s a video where Erik can’t speak English:

    0:58: “one of the most craziest weeks” LOL. Yet Erik corrects grammar himself on eatfeats when he has no other response. Pot-kettle-black.

    Better stick to cheating at poutine contests.

    I heard that Seiken was secretly recording Crazy Legs Conti trying to eat 21 hotdogs and as he threw up all over the table the battery on his cheap camcorder goes dead and missed George Shea running in the set like Cecil B. Demille yelling cut cut cut…

    It was obviously a set up for Conti not to fail no matter what. If he threw up they would cut the tape and just resume it when Conti was ready to continue.

    I remember Charles Hardy storming towards Seiken “Brian shut that camera off ” Seiken said “Don’t worry battery is dead”

    At least the Goldstein cuz has a shot at wing bowl. Maybe a long shot, but it is a shot. Seiken on the other hand would have no shot as was the case every time he stepped up to the table. Hope Goldstein is still enjoying that nice expensive vehicle he won. Sure beats a lame pickle trophy.

    To help you out 1:55, I then had aces cracked by a horrible pre-flop call (I did make a big raise) for most of my pot and then I believe lost with jacks to be knocked out just short of the bubble. All the skill in the world means nothing if you don’t have a bit of luck too. Oh well, it happens.

    That explains it. I couldn’t figure out with only 45 left and 250k you failed to cash. Tournaments are more like an elaborate lottery . 10% skill 90 % luck

    I have nothing against you, but maybe if you didn’t comment on almost every post on eat feats you wouldn’t be berated all the time…. Also being a grammar nazi doesn’t help you either. Yes people have grammatical errors, but does it really matter that much. (we get what people are saying)

    You are probably hurt as well by the things people say to you. (just my guess) So maybe just do what most of us do and don’t even bother commenting. Sometimes I think maybe you like that back and forth with people and if that is the case it’s pretty sad. Good luck with everything.
