When is enough, enough when slandering those that accept the judging responsibilities.
I recently came across an article written on prominent breeder/trainers blog page about " good judges make good trials" , but he fails to mention the other side of the coin, as most do, when promoting their own cause, and that of some of his loyal followers, and that is. when dogs don't meet don't meet the very bare minimum required to get a placement, let alone a Championship. People don't get trophies in field trials for participation. So good judges make the difficult decision that's needed, and correct much to the displeasure of most, and to some that stated " my dog ran like sh$t" made it his personal mission to blame all those involved in that correct decision.
So I would say, maybe accept some of those judging assignments when asked, and we'll see how social media treats your decisions.
And actually , the Championship he So eloquently wrote about the results should've been invalidated, per their buddy at the AFTCA. You see when all the facts are presented, the picture he painted, gets very murky, and muddy.
