Not taking ANYTHING away from the finalists, GREAT job....this may come across as sounding crappy.......shouldn't the winner be judged by their end product and not a click on a website?

In an ideal world yes. It will be a popularity contest. I highly doubt anyone is going to recreate all 8 recipes and then pick their favorite.
I think the reason they are doing it this way is to create a public involvement and product awareness. They have 105,000 Facebook followers. It is a good way to hit their target consumer. Also I am sure they will make anyone that wants to vote like their page first.

Originally they told us the recipes would be placed on facebook for the vote. The also said they were going to have the voting period in October and finish mid November. They didn't even notify the finalist until then.

No offense to any of the finalists but weren't we told that no commercial sauces or rubs other than the team's were not allowed?

that was my understanding, apparently it didn't matter.

We were allowed to use commercial sauces and rubs. They just had to be listed as ingredients if the wing won a contest.

Not that it matters, I am happy for the finalists, and I look forward to trying some of the recipes,

apparently we have different definitions of commercial sauces and rubs.
I took:
"the Recipe does not contain any brand name products, except those owned by Sponsor"

so commercial rubs and sauces and anything else not homemade or owned by tyson would not be allowed.
I admit, I do not know what tyson owns.

But anyway, I think it is a great contest and I am glad for the finalist.

We weren't. While I freely admit I didn't put much effort into the contest when I competed @ Pleasantville last year, I was given the rules that are below.

I agree, think its a cool contest and am happy for the finalists. This seems to be another one of the things that sort of "evolved" as this contest went along. I too am not sure what Tyson owns, however I'd be willing to wager dinner they dont own Big Poppa's or Texas Pepper Jelly.
I understand they are also having trouble with people outside the US having difficulty voting which is probably troubling to the Canadian finalist. Again not a dig, just another thing I hope they would work out if they continue thus contest.
