    I think if he licked each of those 125 wings it would equal a pound… Same goes for Gravy…

    Obviously somebody really messed up the weighing or a fix was in… possibly both.

    No way is CLC 3 times better then both Gravy and A-train in wings.

    I wasn’t there. However let me shoot this out there….

    1) is it at all possible that the A-train had a bad day? is it more possible that there was something wrong with the counting/weighing?

    2) are these drummies or wingettes? the wingettes that I eat at hooters have the flapper still on them. Is it possible that the other contestants (including Gravy Brown) did a better job on those wingettes with the flappers reducing the leftover weight while eating significantly less wings?

    No doubt A-Train is a great eater, but those are the questions I have. It is wings as well, I don’t remember a wing contest without some controversy. Remember the totals put up in Dallas for the MLE wingstop event? And what wing bowl hasn’t had some people complaining that the entire thing was rigged.

    Just some thoughts, maybe he was really screwed, maybe not. I would like to learn more about the wings first.

    hooters events that i have done in the past were very careful to have a 50/50 split of “drummies” and “wingettes”…guessing this one would be same?

    At the event they were just wingettes with the flappers, no drummies.

    Looks like A-Train is doing local wing contests now… WOW Is anyone following the MLE contract anymore? Did he have prior approval to do this contest?

    Tater, if you recall, when EatFeats picked up on the contest A-Train came onto the site and commented that he had full approval from the MLE. It was contest for charity from what i remeber.

    I think last years Wingstop results are prime example of why people shouldn’t jump to conclusions about the contest being rigged. I think Conti’s shadow lingures over him and people dimish his ability as an eater for it. Remeber, Wings and all debris food is a major equalizer. In Conti’s postion, being that his capacity isn’t that good, might have put aside nathans and focused on tons of wings while everyone else kills hot dogs. If that is the case he is definitly playing the cards right.

    Think the one phrase people should think about after seeing these results is “innocent until proven guilty”

    Once proven guilty, its assumed you are guilty all the time. & that is reasonable.

    Not really, just more subject to prejustice. If a once convicted theif walks into a store and walks out with a candy bar, it would be unreasonable to say he stole it without proof.
