    Oj: Have you had the chance yet to update total cash winnings and contests for the eaters? I don’t see clam’s listed for Sonya?

    So what? The ifoce has decided that Bertoletti still has the short form Oyster record.

    The clams results have been entered. I have not been able to find the oysters prize breakdown. (Last year’s purse was $2250, this year’s was $1750, so I can’t reuse the 2009 figures.)

    Hey OJ thanks for update in cash winnings. Because anybody who knows anything about solo sports and competitive eating recognizes that money earned is really the only undisputed, mathematical recognition of who are the top eaters. The free market can be such a bitch. Even a joke like Pete tried to give himself credibility by saying he could earn 100 grand by joining the IFOCE.

    amazing how a copycat like OJ rifkin is being given credit by the naive morons on this site for putting together such a fantastic database of money earnings and contest stats for the eaters. Failed to mention that Butiful brian was the first to post money earnings and titles of Booker Jarvis and Sonya. If you check OJ database it is loaded with ????? on dates and totals including misinfo. This in part because he never had direct contact with any of the eaters and for that matter never will.

    OJ’s no copycat … more like the “mane” lion!

    OJ is the man (or woman)! The reason OJ’s site succeeds while other copycats fail is because EatFeats is thorough and fair. It’s also nicely designed and easy to use/navigate, which is something the other sites can’t claim.

    Why is Seiken allowed to sabotage every cconstructive thread on this site? Might as well just let this blog be one gigantic abuse room, centering on Unbeautiful Brian and his own petty, selfish interests.

    Everybody who competed did. It was a disgraceful thing he did. Someone held in such high regard to do that? Pathetic.

    Camaraderie my ass. Legs is a shell of his old self and even George couldn’t save him from losing that day. It wasn’t even George that found the dogs in Legs’ gloves, it was the Nathan’s official that was there. George then replied, ‘well that’s a shame’ when he saw the HDB’s tucked away in the gloves. He also ‘dropped’ 2 full hot dogs on the ground at the feet of the two guys that beat him. I don’t know what he was trying to accomplish but the respect that this guy had once gotten should be gone as he’s turned into a weasel.

    And he is not allowed to complain about anything, everyone had the same conditions with the buns and he was 3rd best at that table on that given day.

    IFOCE camaraderie was more hype than anything else. It was Ed Jarvis who picked up the phone to call everybody back in the day. He sells real estate and most of his time is spent on the phone making appointments to meet clients. It was a convienient way to kill time but at the same time keep them happy becuse the eaters he was chatting with on the phone were the same eaters that were getting their asses handed to them by Jarvis at the table .

    Quit spreading lies, Beard. You’re lucky you won, and you’re lucky they’re letting you go to the finals.

    No, that’s pretty standard procedure with the dynamic duo. Both are the quickest to point the finger or draw George’s attention to anyone at the table in order to divert attention from themselves. “Icons of the Sport?” – oh please. They’ve been pulling this same s*&T for years. Ask anyone who’s been there and seen that. Apparently everyone cheats except them – ask ’em, they’ll tell you, maybe even on TV. Dale, Joey, Bob, Rich, Sonya, Juliet – yup, all cheaters. Legs and X? Nope – they’re freaking icons of the sport.

    Hopefully George or Rich can find a nice girl scout troop competition that won’t require such obvious cheating, and both he and his buddy can make yet another trip to Coney Island. But what will they do about the 20 HDB minimum, say he was on a military base? Sickening really, but you really have to see it up close and personal to get the full impact.

    Trust me, if this was about any one else, there would be nothing else to discuss here BUT that. But since it’s “Jason,” well, we’d all better keep our mouths shut regardless if you were there or not. Just be grateful neither of them is pointing their finger at you. Then the stuff would really hit the fan. Once you’ve dealt with that crap, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Good luck guys, be more discreet next time.
