    “Hope” ? Because it wasn’t an IFOCE contest that he competed in?

    No, dopey anonymous agitator, “Hope” because I haven’t seen Keeler in a long time, and I hope to be in a qualifier with him

    You can expect Russ to be thrown out the ifoce like a bunch of other eaters. History will repeat itself it happened to Jed,Boone,Mih,Skinny boy and who knows who else has got caught. Lame if you ask me

    Lame that they’re competing in non-IFOCE contests or lame that they’ll be thrown out for doing so?

    People should be allowed to eat wherever they please. It’s like saying this is my girlfriend and she cant date anyone else

    You can’t blame the IFOCE for abiding by the rules, nor can you blame the eaters for eating at events outside of MLE.
