    competitive eating is not and never will be a topic of concern which is why this site is the only site around that bothers to cover it. After Nathans nobody really cares except for the Shea brothers MLE eaters never bother to comment They might visit the site but no comments. The independent eaters like Brandon get no coverage and nobody cares about them which is why he and a few others that mean relatively nothing to competitive eating bother to leave comments.
