That's fucked up.

If there is an array of steel and a shooter is working their way across as obviously as that, if the number of rounds shot equals or exceeds the number of steel, I'm gonna have a hard time calling an FTE on something standing. Especially when they are that far away and that bunched up.

On top of that, I'm watching the gun, not the steel.

They actually talked about that in RO class when I took it (the dinosaurs were young). FTE is one of those calls for when someone obviously skips a target, like never even stopping at a shooting position and blazing past it without firing. ...like the paper target he totally skipped.

Dick call from a dick RO.

Who were the ROs on Stage 6 ? They should be banned from working  anything above a level 1 forever.

That's a bit extereme. They can still shoot (and pay full match fees).

They have no fucking clue what you actually engaged. Retarded call.

Simply put, an RO should never make any call that they are not absolutely certain about.  Even if they are 99% certain.  

 

Don't make the fucking call unless you're 100% sure of what you're calling.

But they were 100% sure. They said so.

 

This is why I don't / haven't ROed anything except Steel Challenge. I can count to 5 but that's it.

Always fun to have the awkward "I know you're completely full of shit and still stubborn enough to fuck me over" discussion after a run.

They weren't 100% sure and one even admitted it.  At 1:28 the stage RO says, "I THINK he ran out of ammo before....."

 

Whenever I hear an RO say, "I think...." I reply with, "You think or you're certain?"

In a couple years of shooting majors of encountered a couple douche ROs.  The vast majority of dudes working stages have been awesome, however the couple douchers are the ones that I remember.  I'm guessing these goobers also suck at shooting.

When I took the CRO class, we had an in depth conversation about finger calls. You don't call them unless you're absolutely 100% sure. 

 

I think FTE's should be similar. 

 

 

Also:

 

"I engaged it... You're watching the gun"

 

"Bullshit" 

 

Yeah... that's not bueno. Pretty sure there's a part of the CRO class about professionalism...

When it's more important to protect the ego of an RO vs. the actual performance of the shooter you have this garbage.

Football, baseball, basketball, soccer. Everyone has video review because it's more immportant to GET IT RIGHT!

Very simple to watch this vid and see this guy got screwed.

Whatever the excuse it's not good enough.

Agree it’s a bit extreme. I’m sure if they ROd a level 1 they’d give the guy the standard level 1 exception on that FTE call.

There's no way either of these dickbags should be RO'ing any majors after this shit.  How he could conceivably believe himself after making that call is beyond me.

Shooter could have done a better job explaining that the order of engagement was different than the order the popper fell.

But yeah...
