    You think you are real cute by deliberatly ignoring my updates which speak from not only the heart but real life encounters with the eaters. You basically list a bunch of shit emailed to you compliments of google. If you think everyone rolls to your site just cause you update frequently think again. Over 1000 hits on my youtube page in less than 48hrs featuring a 30 second video of Kobe being arrested. Over 200 hits on my editorial of Kobe being arrested. Did you attend the parties? Were you at Nathans final? NO . Your info is based on how many eaters are naive enough to leave their facebook pages non private or any thing else that is available via public knowledge on the net. I personally could care less how many of your fans on this site slam me while at the same time come to your defense

    That’s really pathetic – funny, but pathetic. It’s good that OJ posts these childish rants though, just as a reminder of how sad it really is.

    OJ – 2

    BB – 0

    Ok i admit it. The request was made due to the fact that my editorial is consistantly ignored . You spend more time promoting garbage than what the fans would really like to read which is fact and direct info from the horses mouth. I think you would be better off focusing on at least some of what i have to say. For the first 3or 4 years 65% of my links appeared on your site. Why all of a sudden the snub? When you come up with a good enough reason let me know. Rather hear it from you than the smarasses that chime in on a daily basis

    Brian you are a big baby! Since you are getting all those hits on your site why don’t you do OJ the favor and link to his site! Or is all this whining your shtick? Sure, that must be it because no man cries this much. Shit!

    BB – Just quit your crying about stuff man. You go play with your website, and be a jerk over there.

    Your response was right on target, OJ, proving once again why you have the best and classiest website in the competitive eating universe.

    I would be glad to link OJ site to mine if he took the initiative to plug my site. I mean really how many CE websites are out there? To Megamuch you are nothing but a total asshole. Be grateful the Sheas gave you your once in a lifetime plug in Man vs Food . The one somewhat creative thing you accomplished in your life was your blog but you werent bright enough to keep it going

    More be nice when you want something while slamming someone else. So predictable. Now why would ojrifkin be inclined to plug another site which constantly calls him names. He is doing just fine as he is and doesn’t defame others. It is the people who post here themselves who do harm sometimes.

    Hi there, I’m a journalist currently doing a story on competitive eating. If any of you are a competitive eater or a trainer, I’d really like to talk to you. Leave me a comment here, and I’ll respond. Thanks, and happy eating!

    BB is like a head injured person. No impulse control. Makes comments that he will immediately contradict because he just has to try to get the last word in. No one really seems to like him, but some appear to tolerate him and most just like to read his explosive comments. I know I read his comments. It’s the old, “they aren’t laughing with you, they’re laughing at you” idea, yet he’ll never get that. Go ahead BB and tear this apart – you know you want to. I’ll just read your response and laugh cause I know I got you riled up, whether you admit it or not. And no, this is not OJ, as you will probably try to suggest.
