RFD-TV files suit against 2 tie-down ropers

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

just my opinion........... if found guilty they should never be allowed to compete in rodeo again.... Any other sport where cheating is discovered, the guilty party is banned from the sport forever...

I couldn't bring up the copy, so don't know exactly what the FACTS are in this case.

Have they been proven guilty, or not. Some of the stories sure do imply that they ARE guilty, yet it seemed to me there hasn't been a trial, verification of charges, or whatever is necessary, yet, has there"

If there has, sure make an example.........then stick to the rules and don't let others get off with illegal or un-ethical behaviors, either.

Until or unless proven guilty, they aren't, according to law, are they?

Who said they were guilty, mrj? If you re-read, Saddleup said "IF FOUND GUILTY"....

The original article appeared in the Tri-State Livestock News.
