Default Morals and the Jack

If you had the chance ( within the rules) to raise your chance to get into the Jack ( due to not all the criteria being met), would you sell out another competitor? its the Jack and we are all competitors. I belive rules are rules. But I also understand the whole Brethren motife. what would you do? I guess my question is would you "mention" an event that didnt qualify to increase your chances?

Thanks!

If their comp didn't qualify and mine did hell yes. It's to damn hard to get in to have somebody take your spot over an event that didn't qualify. Brethren or not you need to play by the rules.

If you are saying that some one is trying to use an event that shouldnt be a qualifier , I would question it . Remember you spent the money to earn your spot in the draw and if ya got beat out of it because some one slid thru on an event that shouldnt have been used you will be upset. Some where in the Brethren motife it should also apply to tryin to weasel your way in when it isnt right. .

I'll post an edit to mine. If the comp met all the requirements and the organizer screwed up the paperwork or something like that I would have a hard time with it. Its not the teams fault the organizer screwed up.

Tough call there. Thankfully we aren't good enough that I have to worry about that.

I'd ask that question privately, and then come to a decision. Now you've got a big audience.

If I were confident an event didn't qualify, before mentioning it to the Jack, I would mention it to the team that won it and see how they handle it. As a gentleman and a classy competitor, you owe that to the team in question. If they won't do anything about it and you're confident you are right, then at that point I think you can raise it with the Jack. But you need to be prepared to suffer the consequences of hurting your relationship with the team in question, the organizer of the event in question and members of the BBQ community in general. Justified or not, some people will not look kindly upon it.

Would I do it? I don't know. Before raising it with the other team I would want to be very sure that it's clear the event didn't qualify.

I don't think it should ever get to that point that you have to police your chances to get into a qualifier. That is the responsibility of the sanctioning body and the reps, or so you hope. And one has to believe that if you are aware of a situation, that you aren't the only one aware.

Who would you "mention" it to? The JD folks so they don't add the GC team into the state draw? I think I would want to know the exact circumstances you're referring to (I think I might), But, if the event didn't meet the rules to be a qualifier, then it doesn't qualify, and, SHOULD HAVE been known up front. If the organizer misrepresented their event (lied to the competitors) and it's not a qualifier, then it should have been mentioned by the reps at the end of the contest. It should probably still be "mentioned", but, that is a tough call. It could paint you as the bad guy for ratting out the other team, and the real a$$hole jerk (the organizer) gets off.

Teams being misled by a screwed up organizer is punishing the wrong person. The GC team goes away thinking they're at least in the draw, but, NO, they got screwed up the butt by a deceitful organizer. People do certain contest because they think - or are told by the organizer - it's Jack eligible.

I think the organizer should be punished by the sanctioning organization, probably KCBS in this instance. Banned from organizing for x number of years is all they can really do, but, at least it highlights who the true bad guy is.

If nothing else, after all is said and done come November (after the Jack is over), I would at least tell KCBS and request sanctions be levied against the organizer if they misrepresented their contest. If the reps turned a blind eye to an obvious misrepresentation, then they should be sanctioned as well. We work too hard to be unknowingly screwed over.

What about a situation where the organizer was clear up front that they might not hit 25 teams, or where there are 25 teams but one team doesn't get a category in on time? My understanding is that if you don't have 25 entries judged in all four categories (15 for a first year event), then the event doesn't qualify.

I understand what you are referring to, and if an organizer deliberately lies to competitors there should be sanctions, but I can easily see a situation where an event doesn't qualify due to no fault of the organizer.

I would agree there are circumstances like this that would cause a contest to fail as a qualifier, and the organizer isn't to blame and shouldn't be held accountable. But, it should be noted at the contest so teams don't walk away thinking they are in the draw or have another team debating if they should say something. I think the organizer has to mail paperwork into the Jack after the contest. They shouldn't be mailing it if it doesn't qualify.

If it went down the way you mention, then at least the organizer was up front and I give them credit for that. I've done contests where it wasn't known if it would be a Jack qualifier or not because of the number of teams. I knew that going in. That why I said I would need to know the EXACT circumstances.

I think we have seen what a team will try to do to get in the Jack the last couple of years. Sorry, its insulting and disrespectful to me. If you have to cheat and lie to get in to a contest that you supposedly" respect, why disrespect it with those kind of actions?
