    I went thru 44 wings, ate 35 ounces… Nate went thru 140 total wings, ate just a bit more than 44 ounces. Third place ate 43 wings and was credited with 26 ounces I think…

    One thing that torques me off is that as long as the IFOCE has been conducting contests, you’d think they would offer explanations for how totals were arrived. It would really help them save face, by answering some very logical questions people have.

    To dodge the issue makes them look either like they don’t know or don’t care (or both)—-even if they WERE actually on top of each contest in calculating, judging, and applying rules.

    I know that in Buffalo (as GJoe already pointed out), the weight ascribed to an average wing is .5 ounces. The total weight eaten is then divided by the weight of one wing (.5 oz), with the quotient corresponding to the number of wings eaten. Hence, Big Sexy’s total of 35 ounces / .5 ounces would be 70 wings. Obviously, the standard used in Buffalo doesn’t apply here.

    So exactly what standard / set of rules DO apply in Hooters? Fans, as well as probably most eaters, want to know, in hopes of continued support in that capacity. I mean, MLE, you people have been doing this for well over a decade now, and this is, I’m sorry to say, Bullshit!

    Sometimes (no, most of the time) you people (IFOCE) come across as if you don’t take CE seriously yourselves, and if you don’t, how is anyone supposed to? This isn’t exactly an original thought!

    the picture of the scoresheet that erik denmark posted offers some insight, but i wish the picture was clearer, hard to read some of the column headings…
