From what Jeff, Steve and George have said I feel that we can all work together in getting more transparency and less BS on the BoD.
I'm looking at us as a group and I don't see a guy selling classes or books, I don't see where any of us can use the BoD to get juicy contest assignments because none of us are Reps, I don't see where any of us can use our positions to line our own pockets in any way, manner, shape or form.
Two of us do have a chance of making some money in BBQ - but only if their teams can get a few calls at a contest.
Are we always going to agree on every subject? Probably not, but I'm sure that each of the others will have good, solid reasons for their stance, as I will. Sometimes you just don't see eye to eye but you can still trust and respect the other guy because you know that he's giving his honest opinion.
