So hockey players didn't "roll" the whiskey barrels. Will/Should they be penalized?

:bs:

 

Not that it would have mattered but they should have been assessed a penalty.  They didn't roll the barrels and as we've seen, you have to follow the rules as they are stated. 

 

Glad that the youtube people are gone.  Bates/Anthony have to be the prohibitive favorite but they might be susceptible to an intelligence challenge but none of the teams seem extremely cerebral.

I wondered about them carrying the barrels as well, but I'm glad that the youtube team is gone as well. I didn't mind the girl, but I wanted to throw things at the guy.

I never liked that the hick couple got that penalty for not 100% utilizing the sleds because it wasn't the "proper" method. It wouldn't have mattered, but how does carrying barrels in a task called rolling not the same thing?

absolutely agree.  If they dont assess a penalty to the hockey players (incidently my favorites) in this instance in relation to how team Alabama got their penalty, this show has lost all credibility.

Phil Keoghan @PhilKeoghan 3h

#Detour called #WhiskeyRollin but clue details say they simply have to move them on their own rolling carrying, kicking .. under their power

 

I don't have it recorded so if someone can go back and listen to what they say.  The problem is, the challenge in which Alabama got eliminated was also ambiguous.  It never said you had to use the sled but that you were supposed to transport it in the "proper way," whatever the hell that means.  And to penalize a team before but not here when even the challenge says Whiskey Rollin seems disingenuous.

I recorded it and stopped it when they showed the clue. The part they showed was only for the other challenge of the detour. Earlier in this thread I had said I wish they would show the clues for every one. This is why.

I thought the sled thing was they had to transport them on the sleds in the proper manner, which would mean using the sleds the whole time. Of course, even if that's true, lots of teams had cheese fall off and slide down the hill a little bit before they put them back on the sled. But they didn't slide all the way down the hill. I guess there are grey areas.

 

I'm not a huge fan of any of the remaining teams. I guess the Hockey guys and the roller derby moms. Hockey guys seem like good guys, and I liked how the moms overcame adversity tonight.


Yeah I certainly am the one that is ignorant... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

I was thinking the same thing. Thought for sure they'd get a penalty after the cheese episode (which I admit I did not see).

The Cheese clue specifically said "Use the sled to transport the cheese the proper way"..

 

Based on Phil s' Tweeter Post above, this weeks clue said they must move the barrels "under their own power".. didn't specifically say they must roll them.

 

any ways the Girl YouTube team is gone :bye:

I'm just saying that in real time, watching the guys carry barrels of whiskey in a challenge called "whiskey rollin'" got my attention.

I agree, but after penalizing the other team, it seems like a lot of people thought they might get a penalty.

 

I still think it was bogus to penalize the farmers for not using the sled 100% of the time. When you have a "task", most times there is a judge that tells you if you did it or not. It is one thing to penalize a team taking a taxi when it says go on foot versus not understanding "proper method" when there is a judge handing out the next clue. When it comes to travel penalties, there is usually a clue box where you have no one at the end to send you back. In the cheese sled task a guy counted their cheese wheels and gave them a clue. That is sort of BS to give them a penalty later instead of the guy saying you didn't really complete the task (like the judges do on other tasks).

It would have taken longer than a half hour for her to climb back to the top of the hill without lugging 2 wheels of cheese. :mellow:

You are probably correct and the hockey guys weren't going to lose either. With all of the stuff you hear about producers rigging things in various reality shows, I just don't like rules that seem arbitrary and seemed to get applied differently at different stages. Not sure if you watch Survivor, but they just had a challenge last week for immunity where you could buy an advantage and the advantage was so big that it virtually guaranteed a win (the weakest player won a strength challenge with it).

Circumstances had a bit to do with it.  In the cheese sled thing, the guy who gave out the clues was inside the barn, so he couldn't see how the teams were transporting the cheese.  In the whiskey barrel, the woman who gave the clue actually saw them carry the barrels on their shoulders.  Also, rolling the cheese down the hill is easier than keeping it on the sled, whereas carrying the barrels on their shoulders is not easier than rolling the barrels.


Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? Uh... okay, well, the button on the side, is it glowing? Yeah, you need to turn it on... uh, the button turns it on... yeah, you do know how a button works don't you?  No, not on clothes.  No, no, there you go, no, there you go. I just heard it come on... no, no, that's the music you heard when it comes on... no, that's the music you hear when... I'm sorry, are you from the past?

Wah? If it wasn't easier, then why would they do it? Hmmm, it is way too easy to roll the barrels, so let me carry it because it takes me longer. The fact that no other team could even attempt to carry the barrels also means it was sort of an unfair advantage. Also, if you watched the show you remember how the hockey guys said it was hard to roll the barrels because they didn't roll straight and he said he was going to carry them instead.   Also, highlighting how dumb the farmers were, it was in fact way easier to keep the cheese on the sled and slide down the hill with it. It took them way longer the way they did it than the teams that figured out they could slide down the hill with the sled. By the way, I agree with DaVinci, it wouldn't have mattered, I just didn't like the arbitrary rules.

Which would you rather do?  roll a barrel up an incline for 200 yards, or hoist 400+ pounds up onto your shoulders and walk 200 yards up that incline?

Snogger is right, this is a dead horse, but even so, how in the world can you say that he would carry a barrel because it was harder? Not sure how big you are, but I carried a bunch of half kegs in college up and down into our basement bar when they got delivered and I would rather walk them up a hill than roll them, especially in this case where they don't roll straight. If I could handle the barrel, then yes I would rather carry it and walk than roll it. It would be faster.

It would have taken longer than a half hour for her to climb back to the top of the hill without lugging 2 wheels of cheese. :mellow:

You are probably correct and the hockey guys weren't going to lose either. With all of the stuff you hear about producers rigging things in various reality shows, I just don't like rules that seem arbitrary and seemed to get applied differently at different stages.

Circumstances had a bit to do with it.  In the cheese sled thing, the guy who gave out the clues was inside the barn, so he couldn't see how the teams were transporting the cheese.  In the whiskey barrel, the woman who gave the clue actually saw them carry the barrels on their shoulders.  Also, rolling the cheese down the hill is easier than keeping it on the sled, whereas carrying the barrels on their shoulders is not easier than rolling the barrels.

Wah? If it wasn't easier, then why would they do it? Hmmm, it is way too easy to roll the barrels, so let me carry it because it takes me longer. The fact that no other team could even attempt to carry the barrels also means it was sort of an unfair advantage. Also, if you watched the show you remember how the hockey guys said it was hard to roll the barrels because they didn't roll straight and he said he was going to carry them instead.

 

Also, highlighting how dumb the farmers were, it was in fact way easier to keep the cheese on the sled and slide down the hill with it. It took them way longer the way they did it than the teams that figured out they could slide down the hill with the sled.

Which would you rather do?  roll a barrel up an incline for 200 yards, or hoist 400+ pounds up onto your shoulders and walk 200 yards up that incline? 

Snogger is right, this is a dead horse, but even so, how in the world can you say that he would carry a barrel because it was harder? Not sure how big you are, but I carried a bunch of half kegs in college up and down into our basement bar when they got delivered and I would rather walk them up a hill than roll them, especially in this case where they don't roll straight. If I could handle the barrel, then yes I would rather carry it and walk than roll it. It would be faster.

The toothless brother couldn't finish it that way.  he wore himself out.  BTW, use the double handed rolling technique (hand on each side, moving in unison.  That helps it go straight)


Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? Uh... okay, well, the button on the side, is it glowing? Yeah, you need to turn it on... uh, the button turns it on... yeah, you do know how a button works don't you?  No, not on clothes.  No, no, there you go, no, there you go. I just heard it come on... no, no, that's the music you heard when it comes on... no, that's the music you hear when... I'm sorry, are you from the past?

The clue said "Deliver eight large barrels of Scotland's national drink, Scotch whisky, from the loading area through the steep, cobblestone streets of Duddingston Village to the Whisky Festival grounds to receive your next clue."

Nuff said.  There is no violation. Nothing to see here. Move along.

I agree, but after penalizing the other team, it seems like a lot of people thought they might get a penalty.

 

I still think it was bogus to penalize the farmers for not using the sled 100% of the time. When you have a "task", most times there is a judge that tells you if you did it or not. It is one thing to penalize a team taking a taxi when it says go on foot versus not understanding "proper method" when there is a judge handing out the next clue. When it comes to travel penalties, there is usually a clue box where you have no one at the end to send you back. In the cheese sled task a guy counted their cheese wheels and gave them a clue.

I don't think they weighed THAT much. I vaguely recall one of the hockey guys remarking they must weigh a hundred pounds each.

Was going by the weight of a filled wine barrel.  Couldn't tell how big those were.  And I'm assuming they were filled.

This is the key. It may or may not easier, but it is faster. But teams having to stay together kind of negated any real speed advantage.

I'm hoping any team but the newlyweds takes the Finale on Sunday. I find them both very annoying. If I had to rank the other 3 it would be Hockey Brothers, Country Singers, Roller Derby Moms.

Best team won.  Putting two guys on a single team really isn't fair let alone professional athletes.  They were smart and joined the alliance as well so nobody seemed to care how bit of a threat they were.  But boy the teams are getting smarter.  Writing all the stuff down.  On the last challenge, did every globe have some type of marking on it?  B/c if that was the case, that is pretty remarkable how quickly it seemed they did it and assuming it only took one try.

Yeah I never got how everyone kept trying to get rid of the Youtube team or the moms.  The hockey players were by far the biggest threat, and after that it was always Max and Katie.  At the least in my mind, those were the best 2 after the team with the Express Pass had the melt down on the surfboard challenge.  I heard Bates and Anthony say at the start of the first leg tonight that the moms were the biggest threat.  If I were them I would have been thinking Max and Katie.  I also noticed every team basically had a notepad or notebook logging everywhere they had been and all the details.  I'm pretty sure the hockey players mentioned they had studied a map while on the plane as well.

It was amazing that as many times as the Moms got lost (which was everywhere), they still were able to come in 3rd overall.

(Alabamas) defense allowed nine touchdowns on the season. I think Clemson gave up more than that in just their bowl game the other night.

However, once I was handed the ball and saw the opening I ran to daylight. Not because I knew what I was doing, I just loved the sunshine on my face.

The universe is probably littered with the one-planet graves of cultures which made the sensible economic decision that there's no good reason to go into space--each discovered, studied, and remembered by the ones who made the irrational decision.

Glad to see them win. Even though they were despised at the beginning, Max and Katie were actually a pretty solid team. They won the last 3 legs before the final leg. Not sure how much of the beginning was schtick for them as they seemed to work pretty well with their alliance the last few weeks.

I wasn't a big fan of the walking around looking for the right agent thing. Kind of was a crap shoot to encounter the right one quickly. I'd rather see them doing some sort of challenge that involves skill instead of luck.

:shrug:  So many times it's come down to the luck of the cab drivers, so I don't see it being that big of a deal.  The bottlenecks in the last leg need to go (a challenge where only 1 team can go at a time.)  Luckily, the only bottleneck was the photo at the Old Post Office, and the teams didn't bunch up there.

That was a rather lame challenge.  A more fitting one would be to have the team member dress up in one of the president mascot outfits and have to run around the bases in a certain amount of time.

He's actually won a race.  A race.

 

ETA:  Apparently he's actually won 4.  All last year.  I only knew of his first win which was done to celebrate the Nats making the playoffs.

:no:  Getting off the plane fast and making it through customs quickly is part of the game.   When the wrestling couple were on, Bolo would often act handicapped in order to get through customs quicker.  More recently, a team won the final leg because they were able to move up to First Class on the flight back to the US and thus able to get off the plane much quicker than the other teams sitting in coach.


Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? Uh... okay, well, the button on the side, is it glowing? Yeah, you need to turn it on... uh, the button turns it on... yeah, you do know how a button works don't you?  No, not on clothes.  No, no, there you go, no, there you go. I just heard it come on... no, no, that's the music you heard when it comes on... no, that's the music you hear when... I'm sorry, are you from the past?

Season 6 (the one with Bolo) was one of the best seasons!

 

Now that a couple of all female teams have won, they finally brought back teams with 2 athletic males (Hockey Bros). For a while, they didn't have any.

Glad that Max&Katie didn't win - too obnoxious for my taste.
