    too bad Pete didn’t hit him….wouldn’t it be funny if Boone got thrown out of HIS OWN LEAGUE??? Yeah, I know that’s impossible, since it’s not a real league, and Coonskinhead makes the whole thing up….but, a man can dream, can’t he?

    ….and after seeing “the evidence”, I’m not so sure Coonskinhead should have even finished second – guess after all his time in India, he tries not to eat the cow, just the bread

    Boone CHEATED! He should have been DQ’d. The debris he had was intentional! You can NOT have that amount of debris, in the fashion it was, w/out intentionally putting it into the cups. It was Crazylegsesque.

    I believe I can say how he did it. When you take a sip of water, your bottom lip is at or under the cup. When you are putting debris or throwing up into the cups your bottom lip is above the lip of the cup. I first notice this watching Crazylegs in a video awhile ago.

    What Boone did was MUCH worse than attempting to disguise that you MAY be throwing up some.

    He will now be suspect at EVERY contest, & probably shouldn’t be allowed to compete in contests.

    I don’t think there’s any question of whether Boone cheated or not. The pictures speak for themselves (which I have if anyone wants to see them). Having full burgers worth of debris in your cups is complete bullshit. Absolutely should have been disqualified. Boone, if you’re going to try to pull this shit it the future, do us all a favor and don’t bother showing up in the first place.

    With that said, congrats to Pete. Solid win today.

    Someone needs to inform Boone that big girls don’t cry, especially over hamburgers. Gave a few of us a good laugh though today.

    First of all, I would like to point out that “……blooom” is obviously Dale’s post because a) the first three words are written grammatically wrong and in the tone of a southerner; and b) Dale purposely made it obvious that it’s him because he wants people to know his opinion about the contest. Oh how you are so dumb and transparent!!

    It really says a lot, too, when your own mother comes up to me after the entire fiasco and gives ME a pat on the back for standing up for my boyfriend. I truly can’t believe you are her son.

    Dale, even though I know all this attention is giving you a massive hard-on right now, let it be known that you are, as the AMAZING Gentleman Joe Menchetti put it, “Suspect” from now on. And the only reason why you were even given a chance to do a faceoff against Pete today is because you are a manipulative piece of ****. You should be thankful that all the other eaters put up with half the **** that comes out of your mouth.

    And don’t be jealous that Pete had me there backing him up. My attitude was VERY appropriate in response to your cheap attempt to look better than Pete.

    You are by far the most delusional person I have ever come across, and you are so manipulative towards other people that you have managed to manipulate yourself into thinking you haven’t done anything wrong. And I’m sure everyone on this thread will agree with EVERYTHING I have just written. You got caught, and now your numbers in all future contests will be even lower because you’ll have no way of getting away with your cheap tricks! Suck an egg Dale, and next time wear a diaper on your mouth if you’re gonna talk ****!

    p.s. when Pete went up to your cups we all saw you immediately try to push him away from touching them. Another dead giveaway. Never go full retard Dale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Complete misinformation 10:52. Menchetti left publicly in a spat not unlike Kobayashi. Boone was trouble from the get-go. Never understood anything about why Pete was not in MLE, his choice? Lots of really dumb conspiracy stuff on here about that and lots of finger pointing. Ridiculous. Only he knows. Would be nice if Mr. Furious would tell us, perhaps he already has but I missed it.

  27. MelC said

    July 2, 2011 @ 11:53 am

    IFOCE’s reason for not letting Pete compete is because “he was already part of another league.” Lame if you ask me. Honestly, Pete (and I think I can speak for him when I say this) doesn’t even care about IFOCE/MLE bla bla bla. He has had SO many more amazing opportunities from being independent that he never ever ever would have gotten had he been accepted into the league. Karma is a bitch (Dale) but not when you’re an honest person (Pete), and good things will ALWAYS happen to good people. Plain and simple.

    LOL @ “…looks clean to me”

    Whoops, thought I was logged in when I posted the “looks clean” comment earlier. Not trying to hide anything here.

    It’s disappointing that things went down the way they did. I realize this was my first “big” contest and that I’m relatively new to the competitive eating scene, so I’m not going to sit here and pretend like my opinion holds a lot of weight, but in my opinion, what Dale did was disrespectful to not only those of us competing, but to Z-Burger as well. The owners/employees of Z-Burger were honestly some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and put on a great event. To try to cheat your way to victory is ridiculous in my opinion and in my eyes, shows a lack of respect for everyone involved yesterday.

    Though I will say; regardless of the eating drama, the contest yesterday was a great time and I look forward to competing in the future.

    And I was force to give up the title and do a eat off for one min. Which is in the FAV of Pete. After Beating him 14 to 13.5. How did I beat him ? People ask !

    Easy to tell and show you. Pete wasted his time trying to get Dave Brunelli DQ.

    We got video showing pete standing and crying about Dave throwing up. Why was Pete doing this. Simple Dave. YOU WERE IN THE LEAD. After he try 4 times saying you throw up. He stood like a dumb @$$ Rookie wasting time trying to act like a Judge.And not eating one bite. For over 2 mins. Thinking Dave was his only worry

    What he did know i was right behind him. Hence I kept eating and caught him and got the last burger with secs to go. I didn’t know who won til i saw his Judge post 13.5 and then i Look back to to see My post of 14 by my Judge. And til this day my

    Judge AGREES i WON. and now we got media out there telling he won by 17. ????

    Just to show How fake the Pete is.

    How to beat pete simply Take him out of his game.

    He even cry before the contest about new rules for showing your mouth. Thinking I made then change the rules. He knew this would ruin he game plan. As far as Joe He lost to me the first day in a eat off. And since Andy;s in Nc . Has not beaten me since. as always.

    I guess moving into 2nd would make him more money if I give up 2nd because i knew I won. and was told i will be DQ if i didnt eat in the eat off.

    So there you have my side.

    Please your thoughts.

    It is true that I would have been moved up a spot if Dale was dq’d. When asked by the owner, & people running the contest I always said that I shouldn’t be consider to objective bcuz of that, but I still thought he should be dq’d. If I didn’t mention the possibility for my lack of impartialiaty, I think they would have dq’d him.

    To call the girls crossing off our numbers judges, is more than a bit extreme. They were “bunettes” who were paid $45. each & given lunch to look pretty & cross off #’s. They should not be called “judges”. I think there were 3 or 4 day time prostitutes in the group of “judges”.

    July 5, 2011 @ 11:41 am

    Pete was on burger 9 and you were on burger 4 Dale. All of a sudden you jumped up? seeing as you’re a slow fucken eater, in video too, you can see that something didn’t add up. You are still trying to defend yourself after Pete showed all the media all your burgers in the cups.

    You’re a retard.

    Only reason Pete was saying anything about Dave is because he heard he was DQ’ed and was checking to see if he should worry about him. Pete likes Tiger Wings and everything he does.

    Pete hates Dale, and next time his fists will fly when he see’s you.

    Be warned.

    You know you cheated but sadly this is the only thing you have to look forward to in your life. You’re fat, ugly, have horrible teeth, and have no friends. I’d probably be delusional if I was you too!

    Dale was not liked, no hated in competitive eating IFOCE for excellent reasons including cheating from the very beginning. He wore out the patience of too many people and continues to be everything and worse that Mel C describes. I would not put things so bluntly but really understand why she is writing this way. I would too if I were in her place. Dale Boone cheated his way in pelmenis and into lots of things, cheated and lied. He probably was the one who stole Kobayashi’s trophy from the so called champions bus along with a camera……never proven as he was gone soon after but he had opportunity and motive.

    Dale Boone, you are and have always been the same, consistently full of crap and barf. Rhonda, many threads have turned to crap and there are some consistent crappers on here. We all know who they are. Thanks though MelC for explaining about Pete and IFOCE. It does seem that it continues to become the era of the independents and for some who left now MLE it has been a far better place with more opportunities.

    I’m not a judge of character, and I can only say that Dale may be a loudmouth, not liked, and boisterous, but that’s part of his schtick. People don’t really know Boonie. He’s much more more intelligent than people give him credit for.

    While his best game is precontest boasting, he has a lot of talent, and can never be taken lightly. His game is pure speed. His capacity is very limited.

    Eating wise he is decent but as a person he is a pile of crap. People don’t really know him? Get real. He has been around for ten years being an ass at the table and away from the table. The guy is an asshole. I do not mean the schtick or mind game part either. Hey there is nothing wrong with being an asshole in the end. Hey he still has a friend or two out there. But most people he makes sick to their stomach.

    He cheats and does something heinous and then you’re all buddies after its over.
    I saw the video where Dale demands an eat-off. How about you refuse??
