Maybe we should start a defense fund for him?
From now on, nothing but somber, quiet lemmings allowed at contests :roll:
Hopefully nothing comes of this. Can someone PM me the complaining team?

Next month the BOD will take up the very inappropriate behavior of spectator percussion during BBQ Awards. Spectator Percussion is very offensive to the teams that do not walk.

First, why are you attacking someone for their looks and your perceived vision of them? Second, they aren't screaming "FU" so figure out what's going on before commenting. Third, I'm sure they're thinking of what might "turn you on" when they do it :roll:. Fourth, if you don't like fun, you might wanna stay away from BBQ comps.

Hey, up here in NE this guy is well known and is super friendly. He makes a damn dip around midnight and personally walks to everyone's site to invite them. His Baaaabequue! yell is awesome. Folks echo it all around the comp, including some spectators. Whoever complained is LAME.

Sully is a fixture in the Northeast. His "Baaaahbequuuue" call is often heard at contests in the region, not just at awards but throughout the contest. It's a call to celebrate the sport of barbecue and everything we love about it. It's fun, and it's harmless.

The real question is, should KCBS be regulating what we say and do at contests? How does one draw the line? Can he "say" the word barbecue? How much is too much? How loud is too loud? To regulate this is a slippery slope. If it's not vulgar and not during quiet hours, is this really something the KCBS board should be taking on? Is it even appropriate for a 501(c)3 corporation to wade into determining what acceptable free speech is at a contest?

I for one would be unhappy if Sully is quieted by the board. Sully gives back to the community. He is an officer of NEBS, and his "damn dip" is a fixture at contests in the northeast. He prepares food for ALL the teams, at every event, using his own (and maybe his team's) money. He embodies the spirit of community that we associate with barbecue. Is this the person we want to censor? It will be a sad day for KCBS if that is the case.

I have two concerns about this:

1) I have no problem w/ the team that was annoyed by the traditional shout out. Where my problem is in their going to the rep and not just talking to Sully like a man.

2) What is the reps authority at an event? How were they even involved? I don't know if this is accurate, but I read that they (the reps) said that if it (the call) happened again that he would be asked to leave. If that is true, unless I am completely misunderstanding the role of a rep, they completely overstepped their bounds.

To be clear, I wasn't there when this happened and I have no first hand knowledge at all. If someone else can verify or correct the above, it would be appreciated.

I believe several board members probably agree but since a formal complaint was made and accepted by the reps, the board has to address it. The problem is, the reps SHOULD have told the complainer that if they don't like it, they should go to the organizer and discuss it there because Sully wasn't violating any KCBS rules. The reps screwed up. Let's not blame the board for this... yet - unless they don't FREE SULLY!!!

Well stated. I know for a fact that he was a primary cook when I took the CBJ course here in MA. He is the man. My kids (3 girls) love when he yells out during comps. It is part of the experience. It is part of what drew me from a CBJ to comp quite frankly. It was awesome to hear all of the camaraderie. It's all understood, and in good fun. You really wanna remove the fun??

My kids are currently practicing the Sully yell.

This is just insane. Trust me, you will be hearing plenty of Sully yells in these parts in the near future!

As the Chairman of the Hudson Valley RibFest I can only state that "celebratory verbalization” will always be welcome at our event. It is part of the sport we all like to engage in, spend our precious time and money. Just think about being at a major league sports event and not be able to verbally celebrate your team… If someone is offended by someone else having a good time while actually engaging in the same activity, something is wrong. Maybe they should go back to collecting stamps and sit in a quiet room (I know I’m going to get dinged for this comment, NO OFFENSE -I collect stamps too-).
Life is too short to worry about the little things…

When Sully does this at events, for me it just adds to the atmosphere of the event. I equate it to waking up at 5am and going for a walk and smelling all of the smokers going and saying to myself "This is Great"

Sawdustguy
07-14-2011, 06:49 AM
I just don't understand. I fear there is a hidden adgenda in this somehow. The whole thing stinks of someone simply flexing their muscles and Sully getting stuck in the middle of it. Sully has been doing this for years without reprecussion. Why, all of a sudden is this an issue?

Anyone know the outcme of the BOD meeting last night?? I know another issue that I had a BIG issue with was dismissed. The outcome of these issues would have been the deciding factor for me continuing to be a KCBS member.

I draw the line when a few teams can gang-up on another team and try to get them voted out of KCBS.

Chris, I think the "other" issue is best left right where it is... dead and buried. It was not made public by the person involved. Suffice it to say apparently someone didn't like another person at a local contest and a stack of lies progressed from there. The truth came out and it's over. I probably should have texted Kim that reply. :-D

Well, this brings us back to the point of why did the Rep feel that they had the authority to address this issue?

Is there some sort of codified breakdown of what a Reps responsibility at an event is? Because it certainly seems that Sully would have been within his rights to tell them to leave his area and not to come back unless it had something to do with the KCBS and the rules adjudication.

With all due respect, if you don't want to provide all the details about the "other" issue, then just remain silent on the issue all together. We aren't all in the inner circle and vauge explanations don't really add anything other than confusion.
