    Did they make Jon sign a contract?

    Here’s a thought: ask Jon.

    Brilliant 7:25 am. You are so right. People ask questions but not to the right people or make statements that have no truth in reality. They have no information, make guesses and present them as facts. If people only were truthful about their own experiences, these comments would have value. And no, the participants usually are not announced before hand (or all of them) for Nathans qualifiers.

    How soon we forget that for a brief time in 2008 Badlands Booker retired from comp eating . After a few months he began registering for events but did not get responses. Brian Seiken stepped up to the plate when he caught wind (not fart wind) about it and demanded that Booker get reinstated which he was . The response from Rich Shea and Dave Baer was “Hes been registering for events but we thought he retired so i dont know whats the story with him” Sadly there was zero reciprocation on Bookers end so hence now Seiken is left out in the cold. I think a valuable lesson can be learned from this

    Seiken should be in this contest and he should have been flown out to LA

    Now Booker is an icon to MLE. He was near the center of the table in this year’s Nathan’s finals even though when his number were down and he should have been near the end. Take a look at the banner pic on the Nathan’s facebook page if you don’t believe me:

    Here’s another thought: Seiken, get a fucking life.

    Seiken tells the truth and will always be a legend in my book Fuck what you think or what those clowns at MLE think about him

    Brian Seiken gave 20 yrs of service to MLE and 10 of those 20 yrs were devoted to keeping fans of competitive eating up to date with news gossip and an internet talk show which he produced by himself asking nothing in monetary return except for some appreciation and a thank you . Thats the thanks he gets? Hateful comments by a few miserable jealous trolls and a kick in the ass and an iggy from an organization he promoted for quite some time. From what i heard his name is never even mentioned prior to a contest. Yet names such as Dale Boone Kobayashi Lerman and countless other retired or thrown out members get a mention every now and then while all three not only screwed the organization who praised them but want absolutely nothing to do with them PERIUD!

    You gotta see this clown Barklay have the audacity to get up on stage and call the Mayweather fight a clown show . I would love to see him say it to their faces He then goes on to say that the the gyoza is the only show in town. Watching it live now Watch the replay. Booker takes the stage dancing around with the mic. How redundant can you get
