Federations like RPS are growing and growing because of their strict judging and lifters getting sick of terrible calls like the one above.[/QUOTE]
I'm lifting in the RPS for this very reason. In some feds around me a lot of what you get away with depends on the team you are with if you show up with a college lifting team that has brought 30 people to the meet all of a sudden everyone of them get white lights? They want that team to keep coming back and dropping $5k on entry fees so they get special treatment... or the local guys get to squat a few inches high... it's bullshit. I don't really care what is considered depth as long as it's the same for everyone, thats why I like RPS... Gene doesn't pull that shit. I can show up by myself and get treated like everyone else.
