Why no INTERVIEW with the winner of the event? They were tripping over themselves to interview SECOND PLACE, however? Everyone on the chat when the shoot off and waiting for awards was hollaring for Jesse B and an interview..but why not Dietmar; afterall, he WON the event!

Isn't that sorta like, impolite or something? Surely there must be a good reason that the WINNER wasn't gaga'd and goo-goo'd over for an interview the way 2nd place was?

OR...maybe I didn't watch it far enough?

Heres why from my end...
1. Jesse is a long time friend and I felt comfortable asking him for an interview...

2. He didnt quite have the crowd around him.

3. We r from Md. and alot of Md. folks were watching.

4. I dont get paid 2 do this...its just for fun

they did interview Teitmar

Come on, Field.
You know darn well why ! :)
Nobody wants some old not so good looking guy to win.
Everyone wants someone that's young and looks better to win or interview.
It's the American way ! :usa2:
They did interview him....YOu have to watch the entire shootoff video.....you will see Tim Gillingham walk up to him and say...Congrats a Puncher finally won it...I cant believe a puncher won it.....And hey congrats to Brian Helland for making it to the shootoff...Gotta love those TrueSpot Scopes.

Congrats to all of the shooters that made it to Vegas.:D

Good deal. I guess I didn't watch along far enough. I stand corrected.

Notice that, like the true professional he is, Michael Branden came back and shot his full round on Sunday even though he didn't stand a chance of winning a thing. This speaks very, very highly of Michael Braden.

I know many, many shooters would have just "bagged it in" and not finished up at all.

Way to go Michael Branden!

Great to have some video coverage! How about some of the recurve action on video, too, please?

That shows the kind of determination and drive it takes to compete at that level. He is a great archer and a good guy to match...He and his wife were both very friendly at the Outdoor Nationals in 2009...and at lancaster too. was a pleasure to meet and chat with them both.:D

The video on archeryhistory is about as watered down as it could get too.

Ok so did any one wonder why there was a shoot of for second place?? I thought that you shoot untill a winner is determined and then if there are same scores shot after the winner is determined it goes by x count. Im not trying to say that Jessie didnt get second or anything i am just confused on the rule... Watching the crowed and shooters after Detmar shot, the general assumptoin was that the shoot was done and Chance got second because he had a more x's???? Does anyone know the official ruling for this?? ?? ??

I'll get a high res version for you guys after a bit.. We had problems with the server crashing at the beginning because the vendor videos were High Res.. I didn't want the server crashing again from the same problem..
