update Jul 6 Brian Dudzinski has a video talking about the invasion of the left side of the stage. Fake blood was thrown on his food and his & Noelle Morgan’s son was knocked over.

update Jul 5 “Sentiocentrist” admitted throwing blood in this instagram caption. Dan “Big Cat” Katz said he will seek legal action following the admission.

The group Direct Action Everywhere has taken credit for and produced a video of their stage invasion of the Nathan’s finals at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3YViml5lXo. First a woman climbs on stage and throws fake blood on Crazy Legs Conti (Dan “Big Cat” Katz also gets hit). During the commotion, a blonde woman and two males climb on stage.

    If I invaded something, I’d be thrown in jail for a time. But since PETA is “politically correct”, these guys (and gals) will likely face nothing, with heaps of freebie publicity for their antics. This just shows, what “freedom” has become in USA today (July 4th). I am glad I am there no longer.

    If I was Conti, I would have slammed that bleeding heart, whale saving bitch so hard in the mouth, she’d be shitting teeth for a week.

    That is one classic video. Reminds me of the hells angels attacking marty balin of the jefferson airplane at altamont raceway during the rolling stone concert. Almost looks like its staged the way Conti slowly pushes the Miki Sudo lookalike off the stage

    Conti doesn’t care about his physical appearance anymore . That bees nest beard is a prime example . His reason for existence is competitive eating and Nathans

    Why does George Shea repeat that stupid opening “they say competitive eating is the battleground where god and Lucifer wage war among blah blah ” Who’s they? Youre the only one that made up that moronic monologue noone else

    It is pretty fucked up that you give them this coverage. Especially calling this an assault! Damn shame.
    Why give them the attention??

    They are morons who are harming their cause more than helping

    It makes me want to eat them. Hannibal Lester style, while they are still alive and conscious.

    I am surprised Commis Hardy didn’t pull out his retired correction officer badge and tell the police i have everything under control like he did when police showed up at the stratosphere hotel in vegas when Conti picked up a barstool and slammed Boone in his back

    RWETI I disagree. Last time there was a liberal eater who ‘stole’ a protestors sign right out of there hand while they were on the street, not the stage. That eater thought she had the right to brake the law and she wasnt charged with a crime. Why should this protestor be charged with a crime?

    At the 2010 finals one of those vegan hags tried to hand a flyer to the Shredder, he told her to go fuck an eggplant. LOL

    They have been compared to the ISIS of the muslims or , Extremist group more than anything . Peaceful vegans do not condone that kind of behavior

    I guarantee next year the protesters will be more organized & they will get to George Shea & his souless brother. You can bet money on it.

    If Seiken got a bye the protestors would have targeted him for the cruel treatment of 20,000 roaches.

    Shea(s) will spin it to say that their ability to attract protest, shows how BIG major league eating really is.

  26. RWETI said

    Its a sad commentary on USA, you have to sue people (or maybe “Direct Action” if they actually exist as a registered organization) to get anything done. And now they will just turn mendacious and not admit it. The police are no help, they just serve the mayor and won’t testify.

    I hear that Brian Dudinski went to the precinct to file charges against them for hurting his family and his hot dogs. Sounds like a crock of crap. Where does he think he is Phoenix Ariz? LOL Good luck with pressing charges against anyone in NYC especially Crooklyn NY where you can sell drugs rob a bank and even commit murder without serving 1 day in the slammer

    928 of course the Sheas will spin this . They probably called Direct action and asked them to stage this entire charade for a nominal fee just so Nathans can attract more publicity

    I’m totally with you guys! The ONLY way to SHUT DOWN these CRETINS. is ‘direct action’ against them. Fists and blows, send cheap thugs to hospitalization. Playing games with police protection is past it’s time. LETS RUMBLE!!

    @135pm (Hot Dog Lover): Sheesh, this is about the most obvious “false flag” post I’ve ever seen in the history of the Internet. Unfortunately, all you veggan’ guys (or gals?) can do is get cheep publicity from disrupting eating competitions. Have you tried protesting a meat factory, recently? Maybe the security guards there want to RUMBLE!!?

    It was either Gavonne or Seiken that told direct action to crash the event

    Hey Y’all. YYYYEEEEEEHHHHAAAAAWWWW. PETA members need to start shaving all of their pubes, piling them all into a Guinness World Record Bushel O’ Pubes and collectively wear the giant “Pube Hat” 24/7.
    B/c peta people equal pube hat wearers.

    Not the best way to get their message across for sure. Knocking over a small boy is unforgivable. If I were Brian D. I would pursue trying to make sure that the perpetrators receive some punishment for their actions. It seems the charges are strong ones. They won’t have any problems with the upcoming Kale contest.

    MLE is not liable.

    All applicants must be 18 years of age or older and fully acknowledge and understand the inherent dangers and risks associated with participating in an eating contest.

    Being attacked by PETA lovers is clearly an inherent risk and danger in any eating contest. Holding events on public property means it’s open season.

    I also can’t think injuries from eating contest incidents are covered under most insurance policies. Caveat emptor.

    Using a a poker comparison when you raise sometimes you raise with the intention to go all in meaning you are willing to sacrifice your chips or your money because you believe your hand is stronger than your opponent. In this case the vegans stormed the stage with the possibility or intent of getting arrested. They realized the consequences they might be evil but they are not dumb

    Lawyer Bob needs a refresher. Liability against arson, murder, attack, assault is not what the MLE contract is referring to in not being liable. This is a society of rules, the perpetrators acts were criminally “actionable”. Wonder what happened to them.

    I hear Seiken made a video where he dressed up as a rabbi and wipes the inside of his ass with a nathans shirt then smells it. What a nut
