Nothing shady or inconspicous about it.
Reason I made this statement originally is because the majority of the episodes take place at other SANCTIONED events; majority being KCBS (correct me if I am wrong). And while it might not be sanctioned, several viewers may not understand that. Many of them watch the show to gain a better understanding of how it work in competition so some may take away from the show that you can do that. As was pointed out by another, KCBS is looking to address this next year.
