IFBB CRACKS DOWN ON CHATTY JUDGES
Dramatic new guidelines have been handed down from the offices of IFBB President Ben Weider regarding conduct of judges on duty at IFBB shows. The July 16th memo sent to judges and athletes states that judges engaged in the execution of their duties are now forbidden to speak to each or share information during an IFBB contest. These new restrictions are to be implemented immediately. By instituting these strict rules, President Weider wants it known that the IFBB is committed to serving the athletes and fans by providing the most professional and enjoyable experience for everybody connected with professional bodybuilding.
Here's the memo.
July 16, 2002
NOTICE TO ALL IFBB PROFESSIONAL JUDGES AND ATHLETES
The IFBB is receiving an ever-increasing number of complaints, which allege that some IFBB Professional Judges are speaking to each other and comparing notes during the judging session and competition at professional contests.
Due to the serious nature of this allegation, the IFBB wishes to advise all of its Professional Judges of the following policy, which shall be strictly enforced at all IFBB Professional Events:
1. At no time during the actual judging process shall judges converse with each other, regardless of the topic of conversation.
2. At no time during the competition shall judges discuss with each other, or with any other person or persons, their decisions regarding the placement of athletes.
3. At no time during the competition shall judges compare notes with each other regarding the placement of athletes.
Any judge who contravenes this policy shall be immediately removed from the judging panel and shall have his or her IFBB Professional Judging Card revoked without further notice. The IFBB expects its judges to govern themselves in a professional manner that reflects positively on the sport.
