This is a problem that exists everywhere in the sport of antique tractor pulling. It has just surfaced regarding one of the best pullers and one of the best tractors. Someone will always feel that they should automatically be the winner by default, and if anybody ever was to beat them, well then it begins. Anybody with a working ear will get to hear all the cr@p about cheating,hitches, rpm's, weight, weather or not it belongs in that division, etc.
I too have seen a good long time tractor puller sell out and quit because a cry baby wouldn't just shut up and quit complaining about his tractor.
The cry babies need to either get off their wallet, or pick up the wrenches. Winning a pull because you cried to the point that the better tractors stayed home isn't a victory in anyone's mind but your own.
