    Default You learn something new every day...

    Did you folks know that handlers can take a vote and tell the judges that they don't think it's fair that the Amateur handlers have to run before the pro dogs running, even though their numbers are EARLIER than the pros? And.............they can take a VOTE and tell the judges that they are NOT gonna run before a pro runs, even if the next pro running is at another stake finishing up there as they've been asked to do which makes EVERYONE wait 'cause "we ain't runnin' before a pro 'cause it ain't FAIR?"

    And a judge puts up with (and tacitly supports) this crap?

    And where in the $*%&^# is the field trial committee???????

    Simply amazed regards,

    Wow...so...all that mess on that other site about you "changing" and all that jazz...guess that was just to impress those boys, huh? Good to see that you're really the same. It'll make it much more fun to continue to watch your diarrhea of the mouth.

    Which way do you think Verdell would vote if this came up at at trial down here???

    Seriously KG, what does it take....a majority of the amateur handlers? And do you get as many votes as you have dogs entered?

    I think Verdell would support staying with the order of the draw in this situation, inasmuch as it was practical.

    I guess it would depend on the spines (or lack thereof) of the judges. Apparently spines were in short order on this day.

    Now, now Keith.... Don't be so hard on those spineless judges. For all you know the whiney amateur was part of the field trial committee, along with his croanies. Plus the same big baby probably owns the land the FT is running on.

    Kinda sucks.......

    I don't know what this is all about, but the next thing you know the gallery will vote on who gets called back....wait they did that once - different games though - during the Roman Empire times. I saw The Gladiators movie.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Actually I think the problem was in the spineless FT committee.

    Running order should not make any difference to the judges as long as a dog is on the mat and another in the holding blind.

    But it is FT committees that impose rules like " First 10 dogs will run in order", they do the draw. They are responsible for transitioning dogs between stakes. The FT committee just lost control of their own trial.
    "You can train your dog any way ya want. It ain't my dog. "
