    Is Scott Thomas? Nice work! Why didn’t any high ranked eaters go to this?

    What was the purse? Might not have been worth the trip.

    According to this comment, the top 10 MLE eaters have started a boycott, as of today:

    “Rumor has it that all the top 10 eaters are boycotting contests until demands are met . No eaters , no contests , no sponsors !”

    I doubt that rumor will become a reality. If that were the case there are still a slew of mid ranked ass kissers to the organization including one in particular who competes for the love of the sport and not the money

    50/50 split?? That means Lardkin will get 50 cents for the parking meter.

    That would be an unbelievably incredible stand by MLE eaters if this were true. Only time will tell if that is so. Force the greedy Shea brothers to line the pockets of those that make money for them. I cannot see some of the mid ranked eaters joining in on this being that they are replaceable.

    Dead wrong . As long as loyalists such as Tim , Booker, Conti Sudo ,Sonya Larell and few others stand by their side ,the Shea brothers will have their cake and eat it too

    This website has turned into a joke. Who cares if eaters boycott. Joey was there and I really don’t think Stonie would boycott especially now that he’s #1. At one time this website was all about eating. Now all it is, is a bunch of drama queen comments. The bottom line is go ahead and boycott the Shea’s will just find other eaters.. Look at all the other contests it’s all the same people.. It’s starting to become boring. Just like when a few yrs ago when Scuillo called out Furious Pete. Here’s a news flash Brad couldn’t beat him if Pete helped him. Brad tried to beat the local eaters in a ESPN’s wingbowl and got beat by the 3 local eaters. It’s just one drama comment after another. But in that case with Furious Pete it was both Brad and Sieken starving for attention just like half of you other people are on here. Stick to the contests or step up to the table..

    Purses pay 75% to the top two eaters (at least one of whom gets a big apperance fee). There’s Matt, Joey and Miki. Everybody else fights for the remaining scraps. Unless you’re lucky enough to get in a contest with only one top 10 eater, you’ll struggle just to cover expenses. This is the reality and nothing is going to change in that regard. MLE has two superstars who are on another level and Miki (the top female who is a lot closer to the rest of the top 16 than she is to the top two). The rest are just bit players who add depth to the field and can have competitive battles with each other.

    I think if push came to shove they would use good ole Sam as whipping boy to try and persuade Joey and Stonie to reconsider. Maybe throw in another 5k in Nathans prize money and 3yrs worth of free hotdogs to the both of them. As far as Sudo and under, they would just let them go their merry ole way. When smoke finally clears, Booker takes over as #1 eater rapper performer and Conti would move into top 5 splitting his duties as paid mc/ competitive eater supplementing his income as sperm donor

    With all the shady bullshit that’s transpire over last 13 yrs its a wonder IFOCE is still standing. Just shows how some people will look the other way while doing anything for a free meal

    This would be great for Tubkin as he would be moved back to #48

    As stated before you gotta put money in a pot for everyone to get a piece of the pie . Implement a hefty registration fee and there will be something for everyone . Either that or a major thinning of the field and rankings.

    1015 it will never happen. All about just free meal for most of them. Paying for it would defeat the entire purpose. The Shea had that angle covered preying on their eating disorders when they launched the organization in 2001
