Perhaps we should get an OFFICIAL ruling from KCBS on...not what is politically correct( I do the opposite) but what the KCBS says are the official can and cannot do at a comp. If they don't have an official "can and cannot do at a comp" then they now need one.
If I'm judging and I buy a teeshirt from a team can I wear it in the judges tent?
Can I wear any teams logo in the judges tent?
Can a team be disqualified if they win GC and I drank with them before I judged?
Can I cook with a team before meat inspection?
Otherwise, I'm sorry if someone perceives something that isn't true. They are actually saying that I have no integrity, when they don't even know me. I will give other competitors the benefit of the doubt, I expect the same from them.
Just my opinion
