i could see if the judge bit it and said raw but just refusing to taste it does not sound right to me. after all the judge signed up for it. i say if a judge refuses then they disqualify themselves and as such disable themselves from making judgement and all nines should be given in such an event. i'm not sure but i think that is what is done if an entry is dropped by a judge.
