    I would say that Bruno got lucky. With as many times that he should have been DQ’d he is very lucky. Cocky.

    1008 sometimes you have to do what you gotta do to win by injesting more than you can handle. Sometimes it backfires with a reversal sometimes you get lucky but thats the risk you have to take

    Joe Menchetti with a measly 40 dumplings?? He needs to pack it and concentrate on losing weight and building his ticket scalping business.

    Crazy Legs was there as a spectator. I assume him and Pat headed to Difaras pizza in Brooklyn where they charge $5 a slice $30 for a pie and minimum two hour wait

    Funny even if its not Seiken that commenting, the idea that it might sound like him is enough of a reason for an aging fart in plainview who badmouth Conti for years to stick his two cents into something thats none of his biz

    1:36 why must you cause dissension and stir the pot? Nothing negative was said about Conti or Pat. The negative aspect is the pizza place which is highly overrated and way over priced.It was peaceful the past few days and the site seemed to getting back to some normalcy. It seems that you enjoy creating tension when comment does not concern you

    At least the ex brooklyn resident wasnt stupid enough to buy a 60 yr old dump in plainview that cost thousands to renovate let alone the $3000 mortgage not including taxes that you be paying off for the next 30 yrs .Have you checked the property value of your house since you bought it 12 yrs ago? Didnt go up very much now did it?

    Did you ever consider for a moment that the comment posted at 1:36 may have been someone other than your usual suspects, just looking “to stir the pot?” You ought to not jump to immediate blame.

    ill bet Goldstein just sits on the computer all day or checks his cellphone every 2 minutes when hes outside hoping for a negative remark on eatfeats that sounds like its coming from Seiken so he can resume doing the same thing that someone with no life usually does

    If i were a betting man i would have to disagree not all of the negative comments come from Goldstein. !0% make up one or two others at best while the other 90% is Goldstein all the way. There is wagering available . with Goldstein as a solid favorite . Speaking of wagering Chargers -3 over KC and Dallas -5.5 in a romp over the hapless Giants at 4pm

    If deductions were liberally used, Pat would have had approximately 65 dumplings and Manchetti 55.
    They disqualified Pat because it was on the table, and the floor. Manchetti’s debris was in his last bowl only. He poured the remains of one bowl to the next. They disqualified his last bowl only. If they hadn’t have disqualified Pat already, Manchetti would have come in 2nd.
    Manchetti wasn’t mad, but disappointed. He said he’d likely return next year. Don’t know about Pat.

  36. APE vs MLE said

    October 21, 2014 @ 10:02 am

    Whoever made that remark about MLE being APE wannabes should think hard before he makes a stupid yet absurd statement such as that . MLE has a plethora of great eaters All MLE members ranked 1-50 can handily beat anyone in APE with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 of their eaters like Molly Jamie and Brunelli They are not called major league eaters for nothing Brad Sciullo once said after losing a meatball contest run by AICE “I lost to an aice guy so what im in the big leagues” I never understood the logic in that remark. You should never lose to an aice guy and if you do its nothing to brag about by downplaying that loss . Matter fact its downright embarassing

  37. anonymous said

    October 21, 2014 @ 11:08 am

    If you really wanted to claim best this and world record that than MLE would have to make the events open to all comp eaters not the lemmings have pinned down in a one sided contract. Its laughable that they can not use or enjoy their talents with approvable from the Sheas. So sad… The bottom 90% of MLE’s ranked eaters appear to be nothing more than background stooges for its growingly tiresome carny act.

  38. Zero camaraderie in MLE said

    October 21, 2014 @ 11:17 am

    Just because you might go out and have a beer with someone after a contest doesn’t make you “brethren” or even “friends” for that matter. CE is very much like professional golf in the sense that every touring pro is an independent contractor, loyal to no one but maybe the occasional sponsor the PGA that assigns their rank on the tour. Most pro golfers couldn’t care less about anyone else on the circuit unless he or she is costing them money and/or position in the rankings. Anyone who thinks there is some kind of kindred bond between eaters (or golfers) simply by virtue that they’re involved in a common activity is very, very naive. I think Sandy told the story on that one as far camaraderie amongst major league eaters . Not one of the old school or new school eaters checked up on guys like Seiken Lerman or others when the hurricane hit . Not a word from the SHeas either Total DISGRACE

    Most eaters have lives far away from CE, and often wouldn’t even associate with most of the people that they find themselves standing along side at the competition table. If that sounds harsh, it may be, but it’s essentially the truth. If you find yourself in a jam, I would suggest calling a relative or coworker before depending on one of your CE “comrades.” It’s sad that some here seem to expect this to be different, but it’s really just like most of real life – out of sight, out of mind. I have my problems, too. Go take care of yours.

    11:17 i am sorry you feel that way Brian Seiken told me in confidence that last year or the year before he was stuck in a Rocky racoon type ditch driving to NC during the wee hrs of the early morning in pouring rain . The first people that came to mind for help instead of calling AAA were some of his closest loved ones like Allen Goldstein, Pat Philbin Will Millender and Arnie Chapman . I am sure that one if not more than one of those names would gladly drive hundreds of miles to NC to help pull him out of the ditch Friends indeed

  41. A Friend For Life said

    October 21, 2014 @ 6:24 pm

    Camaraderie isn’t the need to call someone hundreds of miles away for a lift after getting pulled from a ditch. Most eaters have other non-eating friends and family they can rely on in an emergency situation. It’s the occasional hey we are going to be in the area, why don’t we get together for lunch, dinner, drinks, etc. I have spotted lots of great pictures posted on Facebook over the years where eaters are enjoying themselves away from a contest and at times it is a mixture of affiliated eaters (MLE, APE, Indy). Let’s just assume the above scrooge is an eater whom nobody really hangs with. Yeah yeah, you will say that you want no part of it and you’re not in it for the friendship aspect. I find that hard to believe my friend.

    Bruno is a wash. If they other two didn’t dq for smashing he’d be in his usual 3 or 4 place. Molly beat Torres- big surprise… She will always be number 1 outcast eater until she can step up to the likes of greatness- Sonya sand Miki. Bruno isn’t worth explaining. This was a fluke.

    Since APE is considered the AAA farm system of comp eating that means they are not considered the big leagues and if they were to join MLE they would need to be called up from the minors . Since all 50 ranked members of MLE are supposed to have more talent than an APE member, the 50th ranked eater in the IFOCE is expected to beat each and every member of APE including Molly or else they are not deemed worthy enough to call themselves a major leauge eater
